Yeah we were sleeping sideways for a while but then she started with the spitting up, so I'm sitting up to nurse her and burp her. If I lay her down on the (colder than body temp) bed she wakes up. I'm thinking I need to use the heater in our room until we get into warmer weather. I don't want to think about what the electric bill is going to be, even just using it for the few nights we have already when she was brand new. But if I'm not feeling safe with her on my chest, I just gotta use it. Sometimes I wake at her first little noise and other times I feel like I'm just sleeping a little too deeply for the chest position to be safe for us.
We're not even all in the same room yet. Our bedroom is normally 2 queens pushed together. DH moved one mattress into another room for the birth and it's stayed there for ds2, dd and I to sleep on. She's still waking/crying too much for us all to be together. And I need too much crap during the night (dipes, wipes, water, spit up rags, diaper bucket, rash cream and a light to see it all) and there's really no room for all that in our normal bedroom. Sitting up to nurse is bad enough, I'm not about to go to another room to change dipes.
but the good thing about having done this all before is that both DH and I know that this phase is a brief one and it will soon pass and I won't need to have all that crap during the night and we'll be sleeping together soon enough. So neither of us is dealing with any negative emotions about the situation, it just is what it is for now.
