Why is it that when I have my 8 month old in the bed with me, he only sleeps 2-4 hours without waking, but last night, we fell asleep on the couch, and he slept for 6 hours? While I loved the sleep, my arm is still sore from his head laying on it for that long, and my back is sore, so sleeping out there all the time isn't an option. I just don't get it....

I honestly don't know. The only thing I could think of is maybe he was extra close to you b/c of the limited space, whereas in bed maybe he spreads himself out a bit more? Maybe being snuggled up closer to you was the clincher. But really, I'm just guessing!

Were you in the same position all night? Maybe in bed he wakes up because he feels you moving around? We ended up putting our little guy in a basket right by our bed and he sleeps all night now.

You know, that does make sense, him liking the closeness to me. I guess I never thought of it like that, I figured just co-sleeping was close enough. I'll have to figure out some way to translate that into getting him to sleep better either with me, or in his play-yard.
