So, Leah is 4.5. A month or so ago, we realized that all three of us in a queen size bed was resulting in no one getting good rest. Leah's bed is a full size (her crib which went unused, converted to the full size) I suggested to leah that we try and sleep there. She was all for it - as long as I was with her. So...dh sleeps alone and I sleep with leah. Everyone is getting better rest.
But...now, where do I go from here? I am really the only one getting the short end of the stick. DH is happy sleeping alone ( for now - and we play our happy games at other times anyway) and Leah likes me in bed with her. If I wake in the night and get up for awhile, she calls out for me in her sleep. I would EVENTUALLY like to sleep, gasp, in the same bed as dh again. But not at the expense of Leah's well-being. How do you know when a child is ready to sleep alone? She refers to it as "our" bed now....
Anyone else move with their child into their room? How (and when) do you transition out without screwing it up ?
