Okay, the third baby is on the way. Right now my 13month old sleeps in our bed. I am planning to night wean in the next couple of months with the hopes that I will be able to get some more sleep and not get my back out of whack with side-lying nursing.
Our house has a master br on the main floor, and three bedrooms upstairs. I feel like the new baby and I will need to be downstairs... I can't imagine carrying a newborn down a towering flight of stairs, and with my dd my midwife told me not to climb any stairs for two weeks. So I am planning to be in the master br.
I am having a homebirth, and I do not think I will be able to handle ds sleeping in my room during labor and delivery.
So my question is: would you put ds upstairs with his sister, and if so, when? I'm scared of him falling down the stairs, but I'm nervous about fire if we put a gate at the top of the stairs.
