Re: Co-sleepers help me!

Ha ha ha ha! Did I say HA HA HA HA HA!

Your little one is giving you a few grey hairs along with the darling two year old who sounds so precious.

I would get an Ikea Crib if this is your last one as they are $70-100 with a cheap mattress. And, slowly transition her starting at naps and then night.

You know those little ones may walk and do lots of other things early!

Re: Co-sleepers help me!

I'm actually really surprised I don't have gray hair! women get gray early in my family. I have a few more years, maybe! My 2 y/o just loves to torture everyone, bahahaha but she's so cute so you can't be mad. Today she was pretending to fart at wal-mart sticking her butt out and everything. Oy vey!

A crib may just be needed. I am fine with naps being in a crib, but I like to sleep with her at night. It's just the times I'm not in bed with her.

Let her start off in the crib and when she wakes up after you are in bed then bring her to your bed. That's what we did with our kids.

Can you just sidecar a crib with one side open to the bed, sleep right against it so she cant dive if she wakes up, but can roll to you in the night?

It's not an issue when I'm in bed with her, b/c there's a bed rail. It's just if she wakes up and I'm not right there, she can crawl beyond the rail/crib/whatever and off the side or end. So unless I get rails for all the way around the whole bed, I have to figure out a different solution! She's getting way too mobile and daring!

We have a crib that little man naps in and we put him down for bed in. He fusses around the time we head to bed, so we just bring him in with us for the night. It took a little adjusting to get him to transition instead of sleeping/nursing, but he sleeps longer and better in the crib...it's almost like he is starting to enjoy is alone time. He is 10 months and we started putting him in the crib for the first part of the night as soon as he could roll over, he's a mover and a shaker, too, and rolled over the pillow to the floor...we learned our lesson! We love sleeping with him but safety first! Plus it's a nice tool to have around to keep him safe and secure for whatever reason. I though the crib was pointless for the first few months but now I couldn't live without it!

I nursed them
To sleep and just placed them gently in the crib. If they woke we'd place our hand on their body until they went back to sleep.

What about a pack n play or cot for naps? We coslept (and are just now transitioning DS to his own, full size bed now at 2.5), but he napped in a crib at daycare and if I didn't want to nap with him. But we used a pack n play for naps a lot when we were visiting my sis, and got a cot for him when he was about one.

Re: Co-sleepers help me!

That's a good idea about the pack n play! Plus we could take it with us when visiting people. I like that idea!
