This past few days I've been sleeping on the floor and putting my son in his crib in our room because my back has been hurting SO bad! When he wakes up and wants to come sleep with me I'd crawl back into bed and lay there in pain wishing we could both just sleep on the floor.
The problem is that the floor is hardwood and cold (for me it's still better than sleeping in bed!!)
What would you do or put down so a toddler could sleep on the floor too?
Beyond the previous suggestion, you could put a sleeping bag down, or a couple of blankets, and lay him on that. My son LOVES sleeping on hard floors. We don't sleep on anything but the hard floor. I'll sleep on a thin mattress every once in a while to give my body a change, but beyond that.. that's all we do.
Thanks, I'll try those... I hope he doesn't think to wander away in the middle of the night lol
My other concern was if I put blankets or a sleeping bag down, will he be ok sleeping on loose blankets like that? He's just about to turn 1 so I imagine he's big enough now to not tangle himself?
My son's nearly 2; never has tried to wander off. IF he wakes up before I do, which is rare, he'll wake me up like a cat, lol. But if you're worried, maybe you could put a loud toy nearby that might trigger his interest and make you stir?
We never had an issue with our son getting tangled in blankets either.. we've all been sleeping on the floor pretty much since birth. I sleep in a sleeping bag to keep warmth to myself, because he moves around so much, and escapes any blankets I put over him. If you're worried about him tangling himself in what you cover up with, you could do it like that. :)
