  1. Parenting Multiples
    <p>My twins are 15mos and DD1 is 4.  DH works late several evening a week and I'm struggling with nap time and bed time on my own.  I feel like an AP failure--still.  I was the OP on the Is it possible to AP twins post and I'm still struggling.  The amount of crying stresses me out so much...
  2. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Does anyone have any tips or ideas for how to safely bed share with our rather rambunctious sleeper 3 year old and the newborn that will arrive this summer? DD has slept with us since birth, she started out in the close and secure sleeper thing between us for the first month or so and then just...
  3. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    My first post here! We are expecting DD end of June, when DS will be 3. DS was a classic nurse-all-night can't sleep without a warm body next to him baby and coslept with us constantly until just past age 2. Now he starts the night in his toddler bed but comes into our room sometime in the...
  4. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Hi all, we currently cosleep with our almost 3 year old. He is a complete snuggler and we;re wondering what to do since our second child is due in October. I doubt it is safe for our little guy to sleep with a baby in the bed (he is a bit of a mover) so we're wondering what our options are...
  5. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>My daughter will be 3 in July and still sleeps with us part time. She starts the night (7pmish) in her bed and climbs into bed with us in the middle of the night--usually around 3am. We wake up for the day between 7 and 8am.</p> <p><br> She has a lot of sleep anxiety and I think her current...
  6. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>My 2-year-old and I co-sleep with a crib side-carred to a single twin-sized bed, pushed against the wall. That way he is surrounded by crib bars, headboard, and wall on three sides. We get in and out at the foot of the bed, which he is perfectly capable of climbing in and out of when he is...
  7. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>DC2 will be born this summer when DS is 19 months. I know I have lots of time still, but I want to have ideas in mind as to how to do naps with 2U2. Right now DS nurses or cuddles to sleep on his floorbed or in our bed.</p> <p> </p> <p>By then he might be down to 1 nap when his sibling will...
  8. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    My twins are now 8 months old. We slept together for the first four months, at which time they seemed to transition well to their cribs and were then sleeping through the night. At six months, teething became a huge, painful issue which lead to broken sleep patterns, and me doing anything to...

  10. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>I've always imagined my kids snuggled in a bed together like puppies but not sure how or when I would implement a sibling bed. My daughter will be 28 months when baby 2 comes along and the baby will probably in our room/bed for about a year.</p> <p> </p> <p>I'd love to hear your stories if...
  11. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Still loving the family bed after 7 years.  I swear, I never intended to crash with my kids for this long, and I have no intention of making a change in the near future.</p> <p> </p> <p>I know there are a few folks out there who would like to see a post just like this.  A year ago I scoured...
  12. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Sorry- this is long- par for the course for me :)</p> <p> </p> <p>DS is 18 months old and has never been a great sleeper. He needs a fair amount of help to fall asleep (nursing and cuddling) and wakes up often- sometimes he's better at putting himself back to sleep, others he needs help. I'm...

    I have 3 children...a 9 yr old, 4.5 year old, an almost 3 year old and I am 8 months pregnant with baby #4. I have co-slept with all of them, breastfed, night nursed and night weaned. I have used a humanity family bed, pushed beds against walls, put the mattress on the floor, put a toddler...

  15. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Hello fellow mamas and papas,</p> <p> </p> <p>I am co-sleeping with my third child and wanting to get  safe king mattress that is not too expensive.   My husband hates firm beds, so are there any that are firm yet not rock hard?</p>
  16. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>We are at our wit's end here with our soon-to-be- two year old. We have had severe sleep issues for more than 6 months. It started with more frequent night waking, and then for a while it got to where he was up for HOURS in the middle of the night. At first he wanted snacks, and we would...
  17. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>DD is 3 year old and has always been a difficult sleeper.  We tried for several months to get her in her own bed for the whole night, and she only slept through the night about 5 times.  It's not unusual for her to be awake for an hour or two every night.</p> <p> </p> <p>In the two months...
  18. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>We have 2 daughters and have co-slept with both of them since birth. When my younger daughter was born, my husband stayed with our high-needs oldest and I moved into a different room with our baby. Now they are 4 years old and 2 years old, and we still sleep in separate beds with each...
  19. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>So my kids (10 & 7) have been co-sleeping with me off and on since birth. My idea was that they would grow out of it when they were ready. I have encouraged them to sleep in their own beds, and provided them both with nice rooms.  When they were 3 & 6 I started to insist on them going to bed...
