We have been happily co-sleeping with our two year old son since he was born. It's only become rough now that I am pregnant with our second, due the end of January. We have tried to gently transition our son over to be closer to his dad, but that has made him even more clingy with me at night. It has actually made him cry at just the mention of sleeping next to daddy at night. If we try to have him sleep someplace else with dad he will scream erratically until he's back in my arms (then a sigh, and back to sleep). He is night-weaned, so it's just a need to be cuddled with me facing him. This is hard for me because I am getting so pregnant that I need to have pillows a certain way or be sleeping on a certain side to be comfortable. I have been making it work though and we are all sleeping better…for now. But what about with a newborn???
I am looking for others who have been in a similar situation and what they did or what it was like when the new baby came. I'm worried because DS insists on me facing him which will be impossible while cosleeping with a newborn. I'm also curious if a night-weaned toddler has difficulty accepting that "nummies" is sleeping for him, but not for new baby. (I often say "nummies is sleeping" when he grabs at me to nurse at night, and he easily accepts that).
