my little boy loves to sleep with mama, and right now he really needs his security. Their father will not come around for some reason and his mama can hold him less because of a new baby, and his sisters are going away for a month this week. Needless to say, i cannot kick him out of the bed. His baby sister will not sleep any length of time out of the bed, plus i have wicked mastitis and no help with the five children, so i have to do what is easiest and going to work to get as much sleep as possible. I know it is not recommended for siblings to sleep together, but i do not see how anyone is going to sleep if i kick either of them out of my bed right now. I have to be so vigilant because i know he will try and lift her up and he has a tendency to kick while sleeping. I try to keep a pillow between them when she is in the center and a pillow on the edge of the bed when she is on the outside, i am pretty much holding her when she is on that side while we are sleeping. I know bedrails cannot be used with small babies, so i have not installed one. What are other mother's experiences with this, and how did things work for you?
