With DS1 we room-shared but didn't bedshare. I remember waking up for every peep; just in general being very aware of him/ even checking on him when I didn't hear anything. DS2 and I bedshare (DH has been sleepin w/ DS1 to give me a break at night). I don't feel like I have the same awareness. I only wake up when he stirs... and wants to eat. Is that because I'm more comfortable w/ him sleeping right next to me, or is that a sign I shouldn't bed share? I keep the covers/pillow away from him, and when I know he's good and asleep (sometimes I nurse him in bed), I back away from him some. I keep my legs curled below him, but back my upper body away. I don't feel like I'm sleeping too heavy that I would roll onto him, but I don't have the same up at every sound feeling that I had w/ DS1. Does this make sense?
Question 2: What do you guys do for BC while BF? I got a prescription for micronor, but I don't want to take anything hormonal, etc. I'd really like to do more natural family planning. But, with the difficulties I had nursing while pg and now tandem nursing...it scares me silly to think about being pg again until after DS2 weans. As much as I would love to just have children when nature's ready for it to happen, I'm not sure I can handle it again. I didn't get a pp period until DS1 was 15 mo., but I know that that has no bearing on how soon it will happen this time around. So, how does one do NFP without knowing when your cycle will regulate? FWIW, I haven't given a pacifier and don't plan on giving bottles (trying to do ecological? BF).
