Oh no!!! We have been trying to get DD1 & DS2 to sleep in a twin bed pushed up against our bed but so far no luck. We have no idea yet where this little one is going to sleep! DD1 suggested her doll cradle!

Re: IT'S FRIDAY! Aug 5 Chat

We've already moved my older boys into separate rooms, once Ethan had a dresser in the toy room he wanted to sleep in there immediately(already had a twin bed in there for guests which is now his). The baby will be with us for at least the first year, either co-sleeping or sleeping in the crib we'll have set up in the bedroom. Thankfully we have a fairly large bedroom so we'll have the baby's crib and dresser in there. Will be a bit cramped but it's not for a long time. Once the baby is old enough we'll move him upstairs to share a room with Ethan.


And Speaking of Ethan he has his first loose tooth. Just suddenly made him seem so much older, Nathaniel didn't lose any teeth till he was 7!

AOTD: Well I'm a little worried about this actually.. DS is still cosleeping with us. He was in his own room for almost 6 months and then all of a sudden, back in our room. It's going to be a really snug fit once the new baby gets here!

So glad it's Friday! I have to go grocery shopping when DH gets home from work and then I'm going out for dinner and to listen to all the performers at open mic night at a local cafe with some good friends. I'm really looking forward to it! Tomorrow is the breastfeeding walk to celebrate world breastfeeding week. No plans for Sunday yet.

AOTD: Baby will be in our room in a co-sleeper/ in bed with me until I feel that he is ready to move to his own space. With DS- he was 2. With DD she was 7 months. She would NOT co-sleep. She just doesn't sleep well with anyone touching her. She did much better once she moved to her own bed, which made me sad

AOTD: No clue yet. DS is in a toddler bed in my room and DD cosleeps. I may add the newbie in and then sometime this coming up year move DD into a toddler bed. Having any kid in their own room is not an option for a few more years, with DH gone so much there is no way I could sleep.

That's the way Nathaniel was too. He slept in his crib at about 5 months on and he slept so much better that way than he did with me. Ethan was the opposite, never slept in the crib.

It must be an "Ethan" thing. My Ethan never slept in his crib either.

Aotd: I am like the kids that can't sleep with anyone touching them. I could not co sleep. I don't even like DH to touch me at night when we are sleeping. Baby will sleep in his own room I'm his own bed, the other kids will share a room and sleep in bunk beds.

Baby will sleep in our room next to the bed in a bassinet, sometimes with us, and then I think we may move the crib in.
