I really want to stop bed-sharing with my daughter (7m) & I feel bad about this. She goes to sleep in her bed (which is right next to my bed) the first part of the night & then joins us in bed around midnight. We only have a full-sized bed & she takes up so much room! She's been kicking me in the stomach, elbowing me in the breast, rolling over on my nipple, I have to sleep really uncomfortably with her in bed, and I'm getting hardly any sleep. I feel bad, because I know it comforts her to be in our bed...it's just making me really frustrated at night!! Any advice on getting her comfortable in her bed for the whole night? I'm going crazy..Answer Question

It's normal for babies to be bed hogs. Rather than trying to change the baby you can try to change you. Accept that your baby is going to be a bed hog, you aren't going to be as comfortable as you would like, and make the best of it. Your baby won't be a baby forever.
I have a 21 mo grandson that I take care of every other day. My son and I trade off taking care of him so neither of us go crazy and can take good care him. My DIL has given up and works long hours and lets us care for him. He has a life-threatening genetic immune deficiency disease and many allergies. He is head to toe eczema. When he naps you have to hold him on your chest or lap & try to get him comfortable and not let him scratch. He slept on me 3 hours today. Great for him, not so great for me at 54 with arthritis & fibromyalgia. It's easier when you just accept it.
