This is a good idea! With my older dd she only slept in the crib for a few months and went straight to a full size bed... so there was plenty of room for me to crawl in bed with her as needed. I might invest in a futon or something so that we can all be happy.

Mostly, Dh goes with the flow as far as my parenting style, and usually he even practices these things because he sees how well adjusted the kids are but this is one area where he just will not budge!
