Upgrades...

We've decided it's finally time for a bed upgrade...I am a bit of a softie when it comes to bedtime and Shay still sleeps with us. Although his crib is set up right next to our bed he almost always ends up beside me before the morning comes. Now with the new addition it's way to cramped to squeeze us all on such a small bed. So King size here we come.....

I know Co-sleeping can be a touchy subject and I believe whatever works best for you and your family is the best choice. I am just one of those mommies who sleeps better with her little ones next to her. Not to mention breastfeeding is so much easier when the little one is already in bed with you. And getting two 4 hour stretches of sleep with a newborn is just marvelous :)....

To further prove my point on needing a bigger bed. (not that I need to) This morning as I squeezed myself out from in between the littles and hubby....Awww

Co sleeping rocks!! We co slept with the second until she was 2 1/2, the third is, well, still with us most nights! And the fourth, she has a mind of her own! Happy slept with us until about 6 months and has been in her cot ever since. I love having milk on tap and I need my sleep with 4 little ones and getting up ever 3 hours in not going to make for a happy mummy. Good on you Amanda for doing what works for you and your family. I think it is the best way for them to start their life xox

I'm with you - 'whatever works!' life is so much easier when you do what works for you & not always what is 'advised'. As long as everyone is sleeping, everyone is happy, especially the muma!
