    Put Baby to sleep in hotel bathroom?

    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone does the same as me? When we stay in a hotel we tend to put our wee man's cot in the bathroom. It's dark in there and he wont get interrupted by us watching TV and eating room service (or the babysitter!).

    At the weekend, we had a little trouble as the cot that the hotel had provided wouldn't fit into the bathroom...I went into immediate panic and got housekeeping to find me a smaller one. The poor guy that brough it must have thought I was totally bonkers when I asked him to put it in the bathroom!!!

    Just wondering If I'm alone in this oddity, and what others do when sleeping in hotels?

    What a strange this to do! Personally I find it rather repulsive. Would never enter my mind. Would you put your matress in a (strange) bathroom? Yikes!!

    I don't think it strange at all. Is just another room (a dark one at that). We don't use the bathroom before he goes to bed. And in lots of hotel bathrooms, the toilet is divided from the rest of the room.

    He's not on the floor. He's in the cot.

    yes, if it meant I slept better, I would put my mattress in the bathroom.

    Katboo,

    Good for you that you put your little one in the most unhygienic part of the room.

    We all have different standards so no need to get all offended about it!:crib

    That would never occur to me. Neither one of our kids ever slept in the a cot, though. They always slept in bed with us and then moved into their own bed. Now when we travel, the younger one sleep with us and the older one sleeps in the extra bed.

    Not strange at all, whenever I go away with my little one or go back to my house in UK. I always put baby in separate part of room, i:e walk in wardrobe or hall, havent tried bathroom yet, but would if I had too. My reasons are just like yours not wanting to disturb baby AND bigger reason, not wanting baby getting used to seeing my husband and I in bed beside him. Also bathrooms are generally the most hygenic places in the house/hotel, lots of bleaches used to clean toilets etc and steamed cleaned everytime you have a shower.........so probably the cleanest place to put a baby!!!!!
