our ds has his own bed -- a double on the floor in his room.
he naps there and starts his night there -- coming to our room the next time he wakes after i am in bed.....
however he is always in our bed before mid-night -- he wakes on average every 2 hours.
We are planning ot co-sleep both kids, as we agreed when we TTC NOT to force T to gorw up any faster in any way due to the baby -- we are simply going to have two babies. DS needs won't stop or lesson when i give birth a 2nd time, they will in fact grow.
My hope is he iwill start to night nurse less,
we have moved him to by DH for other adult cuddles besides momma and the boobies.
I have started putting minor distance between us at night -- so i can get up to pee without disturbing him, and so eventually i can move with the baby without it effecting him.
I have started rooling over so my back is to him, letting him put his feet on my back or something, so he gets used to "different things". KWIM? so i can roll to face a baby without him waking up cuz he has never felt my back and not my fornt.
but i figure both my babies will only be young once, and they both need a rock solid foundation for the future -- we will do what we have to do.....if i wasn't going to do the best FOR THEM then I would not have had them.
DH comments that is baby is keeping him and T up -- they will go to T's room and sleep. in reality I think T will keep the baby up -- at least when it is tiny and sleeping 90% of the 24 hours.....
so DH might get to go to the other bed with T so momma and Baby can sleep.
