Pregnant mamas of toddlers...
Just wondering what you are planning on doing for a bed for the new baby if you are NOT co-sleeping.
My husband and I were just completely uncomfortable co-sleeping with DS. We might be able to do it with a different kid of different temperament/activity level, etc. but I'm feeling like I should plan for not co-sleeping, just to be prepared.
I really do not think DS is going to be done with his crib by the time the new baby is born (he will be 2 years, 4 months). I was thinking of using our pack n play for the new baby until DS feels like he wants to move to a toddler bed or maybe a twin size mattress on the floor.
Does anyone plan on actually getting a second crib, or just making do with other stuff until the crib is free again? I can't decide. If I get another crib, it will for sure be a convertible style one that can eventually become a twin or full size "adult" bed.
Maybe someone who's been there, done that can chime in? Maybe it's super individual? I have just heard that at 2 and 1/2 years old a new baby can be a rough transition for a LO and I don't want him to lose his comfort zone for sleeping on top of losing the undivided attention of both parents.
