DD is 10 mo and has been cosleeping since birth...she likes to be touching me and nurses VERY often at night. We have a queen bed and have sidecar'd the crib-even though the crib is right next to our bed-like an extention of our mattress-dd still won't sleep there...because of space issues-dh has been sleeping in the other room-he just isn't comfy in the queen with us.
I would really like dh back in the bed and dd in her crib next to me! any ideas as to how to make this happen?
I get her to sleep in the sling and she spends the first part of the night in the sling or in a big round chair that she loves. When I go to bed I bring her with me and try to put her in the crib part of the bed. Sometimes she will sleep there a few hrs, but more likely, she wakes up and crawls next to me. If I try to put her back after she wakes to nurse, same thing happens.
I have tried to make the crib mattress a bit more soft with some blankets under the sheet, but it is not good enough!
Any one else with this problem? It looks like it should work so well and we could all be so happy! If only!
