Yep.. another question about intimacy and bed sharing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My current living space is this: a small 2 bed apartment with me, DH, DD and MIL. DD is in the bed with us. I'm at a complete loss as to how to DTD in this situation. We've tried in the living room but I am terrified of MIL coming out, and it just feels so out there. If DH is home in the daytime, putting DD in MIL room to nap works well, but that is not often enough. I do have a toddler bed for DD in storage that I can put in our room, and she does sleep like a log for the first few hours at night, but it's that really an option? Ideas please!

Your baby was born last year so she's no more than a year and a half, is that right?  By all means, stick her in a toddler bed and get it on!

I believe it's an option.  The Hubby and I would DTD even with a baby/toddler sleeping on the far edge of our bed.  They're asleep.  And even if they do catch a glimpse it's not scarring in any way.

 

I know not everyone is comfortable DTD with a child in their bed, but there's nothing inherently wrong with it.  If putting your child in a toddler bed in your room makes you feel better then that would be a good choice.
