Hey everyone... I have a question. My 23 month old was doing JUST fine going to sleep in his own room from 18 months on, then I found out I was pregnant... At about 8 weeks pregnant he started fighting us to stay in his room for bedtime and naptime. We can either put him back in his bed for an hour or longer, or let him fall asleep in our bed and it take 5 mins... Once he is asleep, we put him in his bed and we don't see him til 6-7am where he joins is in our bed til about 8, then we all wake up. But ok... So my question is... How can I change this behavior before the baby comes and it not unfold again once the baby is here (I'm 16 wks pregnant now) I really don't mind co sleeping, and my husband and I are getting a free king bed and just figured why not put the king bed next to our queen so we have a HUGE bed since toddlers move a lot in their sleep. But I don't feel safe having my (will be) 2.5 year old in the bed with a newborn.
My son doesn't have any health or medical issues... Well, maybe a nice healthy attachment to me :P but still... He slept in his own twin bed for MONTHS before this turn around.
