Right now we cosleep with our very-active-sleeper (4yr old son). He is all over the place while sleeping and can be a bit noisy. I am trying to figure out how to handle sleeping for baby #2. We have a king size bed. My son sleeps between my husband and I (otherwise he'd fall off) and takes up most of the bed. I don't feel comfortable having the baby b/w me and the edge of the bed (our bed is not against a wall and can not be put against a wall (only the headboard is).
I don't feel like baby #2 must sleep w/ us. In fact #1 is w/ us because he would not sleep on his own - and we're both happy and fine with that. Actually, at first I was very worried about sleepign w/ him - that I'd roll over on him. Now I'm worried about not sleeping w/ the new baby, just can't figure out how to do it safely since #1 is bound to kick each and every one of us in the head a few times a night!
Any suggestions? We have a cradle for our room, a crib for baby's room (though I don't see myself being comfortable having baby in a room alone) and an amby baby hammock (my 1st did not sleep at all so we tried everything, except Ferber (blech!)). Another concern is that if this baby does fine sleeping alone will there be animosity that the older sleeps w/ us and the younger doesn't?
