Co-sleeping- My husband uses the comforter, I take the normal sheet. I'll pull the sheet up to waist-level, and I use one pillow but sleep on the corner of it with the rest behind me. (Still in the 80s high/60s low here, but I guess I need a plan for winter.. I've read that some cosleeping mothers cut the front off a thermal top, which seems like a potentially good option- I don't want to have to pull a shirt up or deal with buttons if I don't have to.) As for leaking, last night I had the bright idea to try sleeping topless for the first time. I've been in a nursing tank and using pads since R. was born, so somehow I thought I wasn't leaking that much... yeah. Oops. Convenient in some ways, but caused as much trouble as it saved, what with the constant mopping up.
Sleeping topless also seemed to increase baby's attempts to sleep-nurse from my arm/side/etc.. bedsharing really kicks her reflexes into high gear. I've learned to go with it as much as possible, but it can be perplexing because sometimes it's not even intentional on her part. The other night at bedtime she got herself into this crazy rooting/kicking loop that she couldn't seem to get herself out of, even while nursing, and last night I woke myself up to give her the breast a couple times last night (endlessly jealous of those who can do this in their sleep) only to realize that she was still knocked out. Newborns are weird, man.
Away-from-baby anxiety- This hasn't come up for me a ton, but my MIL gets here a week from today and I'm not looking forward to the idea that I hand the baby over a lot.. I hope she's able to manage her expectations. I'm going to try to plan for two regular 'take her for a bit while I shower/nap/work' periods a day, but will not be messing with our general setup (especially in the evenings), period. (By the way, MamanF, so glad to hear that you are doing well with all of this!)
AFM- Baby's been sleeping most of the day, which makes me worried about tonight.. we had one of these days earlier in the week that resulted in a crap night. Yesterday she fought going down all day, just catnapped long enough for me to not be able to rest myself, and slept like a champ last night.
