Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
ezra won't nap anywhere but ON US. if i eeeever so slowly transition him down to the couch or bed or crib, he's up in 5 min. and, he goes to sleep for the night at 3am...
for nap it is still mostly on us, but every so often with a very tight swaddle he can be transitioned elsewhere.
I have to admit I am kind of scared of co-sleeping. She really isn't elevated enough to help with her reflux. I'd like to do it, since it often helps her fall asleep if I nurse her in bed (of course, with the shoes/bar on it's hard to do side-lying, because it means she has to have her head turned completely to the side, which I know is not a good position).
Our biggest problem is that she won't sleep anywhere but with me at night. Well, it's not really a problem since I enjoy cosleeping anyway, but I'd like some down time in the evenings after she goes to bed, and DH wants some "us" time. She won't sleep without me for more than 20-30 minutes. Any tips on getting her to sleep alone for an hour or two at a time would be great.
