We love our cosleeping cot! DS transferred really well from snuggled next to me into it. I make sure I line up with his head and eye line and sleep with my hand next to his side which I pop straight onto his tummy if he stirs etc. I cannot express how much I love sleeping so close to him :-)
I co-sleep (following all safety advice) with DD who is 3 months. I have noticed over the past week or so that she wriggles and kicks a lot if she's snuggled up to me (previously this is the only way she would sleep) When I move away she settles down and sleeps fairly peacefully. However, when she does wake up she cries straight away as I'm not right there, she settles as zoo as I snuggle up to her (she usually needs feeding to sleep again).
I have ordered a co-sleeping bedside crib thingy and we're just waiting for it to be delivered, I'm hoping that this will work and give her some of her own space. I guess I'm looking for advice on what to do until the crib arrives and any advice on the crying when she wakes and realises she's not snuggled to me?
