Cosleeping Sucks...

DD (18 mos) just stole my favorite pillow.

This made me chuckle as I'm trying to contort myself around my 17mo in my king size bed!

I had to move my 6 yo over and my 4 1/2 mo old over so I could squeeze between them! Going to bed shouldn't be this much work! Lol

We aren't getting any sleep here, and the cat's tail keeps hitting 4mo DD in the head. I've pushed her off the bed like four times now (the cat, not DD).

I lol'd.

At first I thought this was a serious thread. There are times when I ask myself, "What did I get myself into?"

Right now I just sleep with my youngest. DH is in the guest room and DD1 is in her own room. DH is getting a bit... uhm... resentful? Maybe not that strongly about it, but has hinted that he would like me to train DD2 to sleep in her own space so DH and I can go back to our normal routine.

The only issue is that DD2 has been and is a very high needs/clingy baby. When the sun goes down, she's even MORE so.

So...not sure what to do about that.

I would start to transition her especially if DH is getting resentful.
We do not cosleep (we do one early morning feeding in our bed though)
Dd is 3 months and has slept in her crib 8-12 hrs per night since 7 weeks.
Not Because I don't want to cosleep just that DH and I are very hard sleepers so we worry about rolling over her.

I do always wonder though how when and where do cosleeping parents dtd? Lol

We dtd everywhere except the bedroom. The living room floor has been treating us nicely recently ;-)

Every/any other room in the house, whenever DD is sleeping.

Can you just put another mattress in your room, and have her sleep on her mattress? You could slide over there when she wakes up and sneak back in with DH when she falls back to sleep. We just did this...we recently ran out of room on our king size mattress and added a queen to the mix. Our room is pretty much one big mattress now

hehe, DS is just starting to get to the age where he moves around all crazy in bed. Sometimes I seriously wish I could just spread out but I can't really sleep without him...it's such a conundrum.
