co-sleepers, how on earth do you stay up late ever??

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

oh my goodness I want GROWNUP TIME... I mean, time to sit up and not have a child awake. But as long as I am awake, they are awake. I can not force my children to sleep. I can force them to go to bed, but not to actually sleep.

So how do other cosleepers do it?

Edit never works for me, wanted to add I also sometimes let her fall asleep in her little bouncy chair until I'm ready for bed.

Quoting Zazayam:

I lay in bed and snuggle her until she falls asleep, then I get back up.

I never really had an issue. I got them to sleep and then went about my business.

It's pretty easy. Places other then the bed, or when the baby's anywhere but in the bed...

My kids have 8 pm bedtimes, and if my youngest happens to lay next to me in bed, then I type on my computer and do whatever while she's sleeping away.

I coslept with the last 2 babies. I would just lay with them until they fell asleep and then do my thing until I was ready for bed.

When she is in a deep sleep, I lay her down.
