I'm a little upset about this...my husband works from home and will not agree to let the baby sleep in the office/guest room at night bc he needs to work past 7 most nights....he doesn't want to work in living room. Am I unreasonable to be upset and frustrated w him?? I want my baby to at least have a room to sleep and I prefer him not to share our room (I need my sleep to function and I wake so easily).
The only solution really is to eventually move my son (who sleeps in a crib in the hallway at the moment) to his sisters room when we get back from travels in a few months. By then he will be 9 months and my daughter 2.5 years. She is very loving and caring towards him, but I worry it might effect both their sleep? Of course I will only do it if he is also sleeping through the night. Also, my daughter likes to talk to herself before she sleeps! So how would this work?? It would wake baby! Usually I put baby down first and daughter 30 mins after. Do I put them same time? But her talking would still keep hm up I'm sure! I'm so frustrated and wish they could each have their own room!!
I think you are being a bit unreasonable. Does he work from home all the time? Does his working partly or solely support your family finances? If so, I really don't think it's unreasonable for him go have a dedicated office at home while your children are still small.
I don't see any problem with your two children sharing a room for a few years. Many, many children share a room.
I don't see the problem. dS2 went in with ds1 when he was much younger than your baby. Ds1 sleeps like a log mind you so no issue of the baby waking him up. Ds3 will probably be going in with ds1 and ds2 at some point when we can be arsed
I suggested my husband can work in our room. Desk will fit in here. But he doesn't want to and bc he makes the money, and wants his office after 7pm...I guess the kids will have to share a room...once the baby is older and sleeps through the night (which feels like in forever!!!).
I think once we figure it out, it will be fine. I am just worried bc they r young and I like my daughters room as is! She enjoys playing in there etc. but I'm sure once she is used to it, they will enjoy being together. She loves the baby and is always very gentle and kind towards him.
Unfortunately though, both r super light sleepers and wake w any little noise....or at least will stir w a noise. I'm hoping w age the older one will sleep deeper?
