I'm so sad. We have had to (for safety reasons) switch our son to his crib (in our room) instead of sharing a bed with us...he's become too mobile and my husband sleeps too soundly...he's done alright in the crib...but we weren't READY to make the switch yet...he still wakes multiple times a night....but it seems to be going well...I'm just sad that I didn't have time to prepare myself emotionally for this move.

Oh, mama- I am sorry.... I will tell you what we did and you can take it or leave it... We have a doubble bed and it was not enough room for us and the baby so we took a twin mattress and put the twin next to the wall then pushed our bed up to the twin. So DH and I could have "our" bed but my baby was still right next to me and I could still nurse and not have to get up- she was in no danger of someone rolling on her and has all the space in the world in her twin bed. and she doesnt wake if we move or anything in our bed because her twin doesn't vibrate when we move.

HTH

I'm sorry mama. I'm sure that this is difficult for you. I'm gonna also go along the same line the pp did. Maybe you could try a twin mattress for your ds. I'd recommend also having both the twin and your mattress on the floor, too. This really helped w/ our dd b/c I wasn't as concerned about a fall.

We also put our on the floor like mother narture did. We have the box springs and then the mattress- my 1 year old can get off just fine and she can even get on (if she has a blanket to pull on to help herself!)
