...wake up earlier than your babe?<br><br>
Ben is 14 months, and he wakes up when I get out of bed. So I HAVE to sleep in with him. Haha.<br><br>
I know this doesn't seem like a problem, but I'm ready to get up earlier than 8am. He won't transition to a crib, and he rolls off the bed if I leave him there alone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Any ideas?

I have a Snug Tuck Pillow (snugtuckpillow.com) that I use to keep DS on the bed - he is normally an early riser but sometimes he likes to sleep late and I prefer to get up early to get things done. Although I still try to stay real close because if he starts to stir and I'm not there he will get super mad!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>

I sometimes pop my ds in the sling when I get up and he's still asleep. He'll stay asleep in the sling, but if I leave the bed he'll be up in about 15 minutes.

Hi Jenny!<br>
It's NellB from MM. I don't have any advice for you...because we're in the very same situation. I get up early to teach school--the bell rings at 8 so I have to leave by 7:30. DH is not enough to console him when he wakes up crying for boobie. In the mornings, we just put on Sesame Street and let him watch it in bed. This is something I NEVER would have consented to pre-baby, but it's where we are now. Oh well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
Anyway, good to see you here!
