I partially co-sleep which means I nurse my 1 year old to sleep and then I sneak him into the crib, then, When I get ready for bed myself, I bring him into the bed with me. I have a full sized bed and it's not as comfortable to sleep in now that my baby is bigger. I've always kept my baby between my husband and me. The bed is small but we can't afford to get a bigger one right now. It's easier for me to co-sleep because he wakes 3-4 times a night and he is still breast feeding. What are my options?
*EDIT* I like co-sleeping and I'm not planning on moving my baby into his crib and I may start fully co-sleeping. How can I extend my bed? Is it safe to sidecar a crib when they are mobile? The reason I'm asking is because I've never done it and I thought the baby mattress would have to be brought up too high. I'm afraid he'll wake up and stand up and flip himself over the side. Also, I'm not looking for nursing advice.Answer Question

I have 3 kids..and I never got them to sleep with us, did you know that the kids can perceive noises & movements, even while sleep... I don't think is ok.. and plus you can't have plenty of intimacy, knowing that the baby is in the same bed.... Sorry for me is a no, no...
