we just brought him home a few days ago..i am nursing & all my babies have always slept in bed with me. my 5 year old now sleeps in her own room & bed... my 17 month old we are working on sleeping in our room, but in her own bed....& now we have a newborn.
my question is... did co sleeping mess up you and your hubbys relationship? or does he care.. or get mad?
he has been sleeping downstairs with our 17 month old, & ive been sleeping up in our bed w/ our newborn. The 17 month old is very jealous and unsure of the baby, so we've had to keep them seperated at night (obviously the two kids, hubby and i arent going to be in a bed together)
im just curious if it is okay to keep this up a little while since the baby is so new to life, I really hate to put him in his crib.. its just a personal preference to me.. this is our last baby.. & i have loved sleeping with ALL my babies.. do you find it okay for hubby and I to put ourselves on hold and be seperated while we enjoy our little ones?

We did quite often. Our reasons may have been different than most. Our son often had difficulty breathing, and later we learned it was called apnea, and all kinds of other things going on. In order for him and for us to sleep comfortably we did have our infant sleep on top of my husband who held him all night long. On better breathing days he did sleep in his crib. Actually he used both. If I had known about the attachments made for adult beds that allow children to be placed in there safety we would have ordered it. But I really didn't know about them until after he was older. Since my child woke often from acid reflux, asthma, allergies, and apnea - from the very beginning, it was safer and healthier for him to be held upright while sleeping at an inclined angle. I would not have called it ideal but sleeping well for us as his parents was never an option given his issues. One of us always had him.
