I tend to feel like I am most similar with moms that co sleep in every aspect except that my son sleeps in his own crib in his own room. He slept next to my bed for 9 months then he got his own room. Reason being that my husband sleeps loudly and kept waking Eric up. So I nurse Eric to sleep, place him in his crib. When he wakes up I go in by him and nurse him back to sleep. So I feel his nights are pretty gentle and still quite loving. But I wish I could have all the wonderful things the co sleepers talk about.
Question: are all of your husbands quiet sleepers?
Do you put the baby in between you two or is mom in the middle?
Are you awoken every time dad changes position to be sure baby is safe?
Does baby sleep still or does he move around?
Do you always have a hand on baby to be sure he is safe?
Do you have to sleep in the same position to keep an older baby from moving off the bed?
Are you getting deep sleep? Or are you waking halfway up when someone moves?
Do you sleep with pillows, blankets, a shirt on or off for frequent nursing?
Has baby ever fallen off?
Is it safe with a mobile toddler who isn't smart enough to keep himself safe?
I know alot of you co sleep so please tell me about it! I should be pregnant again soon do I'm trying to think about if there's anything I can improve on with the next baby.
