Accidental co-sleeping

Somehow we’ve ended up co-sleeping with Loudboy every night.  I’m not sure how this has happened, but separation anxiety, teething and holidays have all played a part.  It’s getting more and more difficult to get Loudboy into his cot at the beginning of the night and virtually impossible to get him to stay there.  I’m in two minds about this: he’s still feeding a lot at night, so co-sleeping is great for maximising my sleep.  But it’s easier for us to sleep without a baby taking up the entire middle portion of the bed (he likes to spread out) and we are thinking about getting him in his own room some time next year.  So I’m going to perservere with the cot and see what happens.  Who knows, he might grow to love it.

 The night wakings for feeds are a lesser problem at the moment and I’m resigned to them, so no expectations of progress there.  One thing at a time…

    Sophie nurses a TON at night too, and she is HUNGRY… you can hear her tummy growling as she’s eating! If we didn’t cosleep, nobody would sleep… ugh But what the heck do I need sleep for, it’s for the weak anyway 😉
