So DH is having some issues with our current sleeping situation with our two-week old DD. She has been in bed with us since birth, but like when DS was a newborn, DH is really uncomfortable with that. He doesn't sleep well because he's afraid of rolling over on the baby. Also, he's been super sensitive to her noises and is just not getting much sleep (who is at this point though, right?). We have an Arm's Reach next to the bed, but DD won't sleep in it - I think it's just too much space for her. We know that she'll be room sharing with us for at least 4-6 months, and DH is OK with that. I'm just looking for a solution that will help DH feel more comfortable and also a situation where DD will also sleep. Since she's in bed with us, she tends to want to be on the breast all night, which is another issue. We're trying to postpone offering a pacifier if possible, but I'm also wondering if that might help her sleep better in a location other than our bed. I hope this is all making sense.
We also have a Rock n Play that she sleeps in during the day downstairs. I've thought about bringing that up & trying it. Or maybe a Snuggle Nest or moses basket in the AR to make is a little more snug. Had anyone tried any of these, or have other suggestions?
My main fear is that DH will move back into the guest room again in his desperation to get a few hours of continuous sleep. He was in there for most of the pregnancy (because of my sleep issues) and I'd really like to have my husband back now. Any advice is welcome. Thanks!!
