I have a 7 month old son, a 2 year old daughter, and an almost 4 year old daughter. We all cosleep together, so space can be tight at times. We have a king sized bed, and we put two toddler matteress on the floor for the toddlers. My 7 month old sleeps with us in the bed, so he can nurse threw the night. Sometimes all three of the kids get into our bed, and its really crowded during those nights my husband dosnt like cosleeping much. anyways I guess i have a couple of questions. Is this normal for all of us to be sharing a room? I would like my for two toddlers to share thier own room, but i'm not sure if my two year old is ready. She ends up in our bed almost every night, but my 4 year old can sleep threw the night on her bed on the floor.
I also have a hard time getting my two toddlers sleeping at night. My four year old wants to stay up, and my 2 year old throws the biggest fits, and just wont sleep sometimes. I physically lay there with them until they fall asleep and can take like an hour sometimes two I just end up falling asleep. When they go to bed I wish I had time for myself, and they just dont know how to turn off. Its frustrating with all 3 kids being so young. Its also hard beacuse our routine is always changing. I cant explain everything on here, I guess what i'm asking for if other moms have any experience with multiple co sleepers and how they handled bedtime. I just need things to be more smooth, and zen like. I feel so crazy sometimes with all the needs of my lo.
