MY dd sleeps side car style and in the bed w/ us. I would like to just be in the bed w/ us all night but she is such a light sleeper if dh or I make the smallest move she will wake up. Plus I have to sleep w/ my arm above her head b/c I can't usually pull away after she stops nursing. Any tips to make this eaiser? Thanks

hmmm...what kind of bed do you have? Does the entire bed move if you move? We have a futon mattress and it's really nice because you don't feel the person next to you moving. My ds used to be more of a light sleeper but he seems to be getting a little better. I also have him nap in a sling a lot though and I'm noisy! I don't know....is it uncomfortable to sleep right next to her? Sometimes I even let my ds stay latched on after he's asleep. He's cuddled right up next to me....very cozy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Sorry I'm not much help...Hope someone else has better suggestions.

It's a tall pillow top mattress(but firm) bed and it doesn't move too bad, but I can't move at all w/out her waking and I can't sleep w/ my arm above her head.

The only that helped us with this was time. As time went on ds would tolerate me moving around and even unlatching him.<br><br>
It sounds as though you have a good compromise until your dd is more tolerante of sharing the bed. I think a sidecar arrangement is wonderful!<br><br>
