My sister is coming to stay with us for three weeks. She will sleep in dd's room on the futon. Normally, dd (who is 9 mo) and I sleep on the futon in her room, while dh sleeps in the bedroom. Both dd and I are somewhat claustrophobic and need a lot of room to sleep - we can sleep with one other person in the bed, but three is a crowd. We tried for the first six months of dd's life to sleep all together in one bed, but we could never get enough sleep - too much discomfort and night waking. So dh and I have been sleeping in separate rooms ever since, which we're both cool with. Last week, dh tried sleeping on the futon with dd and I. Both DD and I kept waking up. While my sister is staying with us, I suppose dh, dd, and I can sleep together in one bed . . . but nobody will get much sleep this way. Can somebody figure out another arrangement? Oh, and I should mention that I do have a big couch in the living room but nobody can sleep there because that's where my five birds sleep (they wake up very early and are very noisy). So making somebody sleep on the couch is not really an option. Buying a king size bed might solve the problem, but money is too tight right now.
