Ok mama's.....can I convince anyone to share their daytime nap routines if you have other children? I have 4 kids....my 3 older ones are home all day long and are pretty noisy of course. My 3 week old loves to sleep on me, but it is hard to get her to sleep anywhere else on the main level. I am sure I could get her to sleep upstairs in my bed(we co sleep), but can't exactly leave the older kids alone for the time it takes to get her to sleep. Carrying her works ok, except I have been in major pain the past 2 days from a slow c-section recovery and doc told me to take it easy. Plus, I NEED to get into some sort of sleeping routine for when I have to leave her with dh in 6 weeks when I get back to work part time(3 hours twice a week).
So how do you get babe into sleep routine with older noisy munchkins??
