Quoting that one girl:" now that Isaac is older I let him come back :) Isaac usually sleeps between us but sometimes he will ... [snip!] ... off. But I also push myuself to the middle of the bed so he isn't by the edge. Then DH gets the little side of the king haha"


Haha. Our poor hubbies.

This may be an option in the beginning, since newborns don't roll around.



So many options!

Holy macaroni. I missed that. :shock: We have a king, and I often feel like it's not big enough. Hah!

Quoting Supafly★:" It depends on how light of a sleeper you are. I'm pretty much the lightest sleeper ever. What I'm thinking ... [snip!] ... says every baby needs his own sleeping space and I have nowhere else to put the stupid crib that's been used like, once lol. "


I'm an extremely light sleeper. DH used to be too, until he started working mad hours every week.



If we had the space, I'd push a twin or a full against our king. Talk about solving problems!

Quoting Supafly★:" Yup, space is a big issue in our place. But you have a king size bed, that should be alright. You said ... [snip!] ... big is it? If DH can fit on it comfortably, just have him sleep there when he's home. I'm sure he'll appreciate his own space. "


A twin. I'm sure he'll sleep there or the couch if it becomes too nerve wracking for either of us.

babies can die of SIDS while sleeping with parents as well... I've actually seen quite a few things on news broadcasts about parents suffocating them in their sleep as well. Thats why i don't agree with co sleeping but hey everyone has their own opinion.

We also have a full sized bed lol it only sucks for my husband ;) we smoosh him against the side lol my kids and I are bed hogs. With the side car crib we are doing great though. Chubbz(the baby) sleeps there, then Im next to him(milk dispenser), then Bubbz, then hubbz..smooshed against the rail. :lol:



He goes in the livingroom when we smoosh him too much.



I will give you advice on transitioning..while we have never pushed our son too hard..we had to push gently. We transitioned his room to a big boy room(I wish I could live in there) and made it a positive experience. He has glow stars and planets all over his room, and a light up moon..its awesome. I even put light up paper lanterns in there. His room is an experience at night. I do his entire routine in there. After bath, he gets dressed in there. We read books. He loves his room, so its pretty easy to put him in there. He has grown to love his space, especially away from his little brother. His own bed is heaven to him..in the middle of the night when he is scared, he comes to us though. Im fine with that..

The way I view it is there is no way around a baby dying regardless of where they sleep.... Its dangerous no matter where they are because they are so fragile. Everyone has their own view on the matter. No need to be a smart ass about it. I'm just telling you how I feel about the situation. You don't see me being rude do you? No i was just stating my opinion.

Well obviously I need to leave this conversation because i'm talking to a bunch of people that goes their way or no way. So see ya later! All I was doing was stating my damn opinion.

An opinion that wasn't asked for. The title clearly states I'm looking for mothers that have co-slept with more than one. Have you? No? Then seeyah.

Nope we snuggle most the night anyway and when I get up
For work he takes over my side completely lol



If you don't want to rearrange the bedroom I think a rail would be a great alternative




I could never put a nb in a crib so I get your not wanting to. Cribs IMO aren't natural

Exactly. I waited too long for this little dude, I'm not about to throw him in a crib across the room - or in another room completely. And I'm not going to force Anna out of our bed and make her feel like Noah is more important.. kwim?



I'll find some way to safely make this work! :D

If you put newb on the outside, put one of those swim noodles under the fitted sheet.
