Sleeping in our bed

Steph was sleeping poorly last night, so I decided to let her sleep in our bed.  She was so restless!  Usually if she's in our bed, she sleeps pretty still.  Last night, she was all over the place. DH went to sleep in the living room, and I got less sleep than usual since every time she rolled over, I woke up. (I am very aware of her presence when she is in our bed).  But she woke up in a great mood, so I guess she slept okay.

She's usually really calm when she shares our bed.  In her bed, she is all over.  Last night, it was odd.  I think she was having bad dreams, she kept whimpering in her sleep.

I hope she gets rest soon. You too!

My DSs could never sleep with me. Weirdest thing, I would try co-sleeping all the time since I breast-fed but never worked. they would fuss and kick and toss and turn. They are both very light sleepers, maybe that was the problem?

Jackson has been sleeping in my bed most nights and is horrible about flopping around. Saturday night he started on my right side. When I got up Sunday morning he was on my left. I woke up a couple times that night and he was down by my legs one time and then the next time he was laying across the bottom of the bed making me scrunch up my legs lol. I guess he just scooted around me the whole night.

my husband refuses to let the kids sleep in our bed ever since we had a hell of a time breaking my older son of the habit when he was 1/2 years old. sometimes i wish he'd just give in, but then i remember how hard it is to sleep with a toddler and i guess it's for the best. i sleep with one eye open, too.

After 2 years of my son sleeping in my bed I couldn't do it anymore. It took some effort but eventually me and my mom did it. It's nice to have my bed to myself no kid just me. Except for awhile now my son in the middle of the night ends up in my bed because he wants me. My parents bring him to me. I wish he slept thru the night without waking up.
