trottin', pole dancing, Norway and Sweden lovin' , ,WOHM Kiddos born 12/11/06 and 08/09/08
with #3 EDD:01/2013 So in love with my sweet Swede and my bonus-son 10/25/98
My husband and I have both co-slept with our son since he was born. He sleeps with us at night time but naps alone during the day in his crib in his room. This has worked out wonderfully for our family, we all love the cuddling, everyone sleeps well and it makes night time nursing sooooo much easier
We are now pregnant with our second child and I was just wondering how difficult it would be to have 2 kiddies (newborn and toddler) in the family bed or if we need to be considering other sleeping arrangements for when the new baby comes. My son is 14months but he will be 22months when the new baby is here. Has anyone done this? How did/does it work for your family?Does the newborn wake up the toddler? How do you arrange who sleeps where?
I know still have many months to think about this but I want to start planning for this now as sleeping alone would be quite the transition for my little guy to make. If we should be thinking about that, I would like to start it now so he doesn't think he is kicked out because of the new baby but I am really hoping it could work out okay. I love having my loved ones closeby
Spu; I am still nursing my 14month old and plan to let him self wean when hes ready so I might be tandem nursing. He nurses two-three times a day right now so even if he is still nursing when the new baby comes, I don't think that will interfere with the new baby nursing on demand but I guess he might want to nurse more when he sees the new baby nursing?? Guess we will see what happens there lol.
