I am not a parent yet, but my husband and I are hoping to start our family within the next year. I definitely plan to co-sleep (a 600 square foot 1 bedroom apartment doesn't offer a whole lot of options, even if I wanted them), but a thing which has me stumped is how that fits with my husband's work schedule. He works from 2pm-11pm and we sleep from 5am-1pm. We have a heavy blanket serving as a curtain in the bedroom which is pretty effective at blocking out all the light. It is pretty important to us to sleep at the same times.
My questions are, will a baby do the bulk of their sleep during daytime hours? If so, will their circadian rhythms be messed up for life? Has anyone done this? Is there any research on it?
Also any small-living-space advice would be helpful! Thanks.
