Haha, I'm too nervous to co-sleep and I don't tend to feed in bed because my OH works long hours and I don't like to disturb him. Been trying to establish a relationship with the sofa but it's just not the same. I want my bed!
If I can say this without it sounding as though I'm questioning what you feel is right, aren't the probs snuggling them in when the DC under 6 months and not able to roll themselves over or regulate their body temp?
I had both mine in from the off whenever they woke up in the middle of the night, it just felt sooo good and so right. They're 8 and 17 now and not so accommodating they were in a gro bag thingy and out of the covers between us so could punch me in the face move themselves about if needs be.
They're just so lovely at 10 mnths odd <pines> lol
That's ok, I just don't feel comfortable doing it personally, I could do with losing weight and worry about smothering him and he was 9 weeks early so still quite small and I have become quite reliant on the breathing monitor he sleeps on since being discharged from NICU
Yeah, even though mine were both pretty big that having to hear they're still breathing gives you that pit of the stomach panic. Get away with the at the breathing monitor, grab whatever makes you feel more comfortable with both hands.
Mine not being small probably did make a difference to what I did, I've never thought about it before.
He'll be climbing in to starfish you out of your bed at 2 am on his own before you know it
I wasn't so worried with my eldest but him being premature does add an extra level of worry. He was 3lbs9oz when discharged to come home so couldn't come into our bed even if i had been confident, the little dot.
He's just evicted me for the day, OH is still in bed, I'm very jealous
Our train out of London got cancelled yesterday evening so had to get a later one which meant we missed our connection by seconds (saw the train pulling out as we pulled in) which resulted in an hour 20 minute wait for next train. Finally got home and sank onto our Eve mattress and asleep within a minute.
