I know most of you are going, "WHAT!?" lol but its true. My son is STILL sleeping in my bed inbetween my husband and I. My husband is in the army and when our son was first born, his dad was deployed. He didnt come home to see the baby until our son was 6mos old. I had him sleeping in his own bed, in his own room, on a schedule everything.. Believe me, the joy of dad coming home was a great time for everyone, but not to the extent where now our toddler sleeps inbetween us still. Dad got in the habit of whenever the baby cried, he'd go pick him up and cuddle with him in our bed until he fell asleep. 2 years later, I am still trying to get our son to sleep in his own bed/bedroom but am having no luck! I've tried tough love, we've tried laying with him until he falls asleep, almost everything! I'm pregnant with our third child and it is very difficult for me to sleep in our bed with a wild sleeper. I shouldnt have to sleep on the couch in the livingroom !
We also have a 11 month old daughter who is in her own bed and bedroom and now my husband wishes he would have listened to me when I told him it was the worst thing he cuold have started! I didnt want to take anything away from him being deployed and missing out on so much, but now we're paying the price! Please help me/us! Any tips, advice, etc., would help! Thank you!
