My cosleeping cot was one of my favourite purchases, I'm going to buy a better mattress for it this time as the foam one supplied with it is not great. Dd could shuffle in for a feed and then move back out after but obviously I followed all safe co-sleeping practices to the letter. It just removed the concern of having her between us as Dh wouldn't be as aware as me and she couldn't fall out of the bed.
We just co-slept with DD in bed following safety guidelines until about 8 months when we attached a normal cot in a side car arrangement. I'm going to do the side car cot from birth this time so will get an extra wide mattress made to measure so it will fit the bed perfectly.
We co-sleep as well. DD was with us until around 15 months. We may move this baby a bit sooner, depending on how I feel. It's my last baby, so I know I'll be in no rush. Also, I work full time so I take advantage of being able to nurse all night to help with supply and get my sleep as well!
Although we co-sleep, I'll still have a nursery. I like our room and living room to be grown up space, with most of the baby stuff in the baby's room or in the family room. I also just love the task of decorating a nursery. I didn't have one with my older children due to ex husbands priorities and little money. Now that my new DH is so hands on and money isn't an issue, I'm loving doing the nursery!
Thanks girls, I was getting a little nervous not feeling any kicks or flutters yet but I guess its still too early.
Only 2 more weeks until my scan!!! Im SO excited, I dont think ill sleep at all the night before lol
As for the sleeping situation with LO, I have a beautiful bassinet that my sister bought me for my baby shower with Charlie. Its wooden, and it can go with either gender. Ill have baby sleep in it right next to the bed by me. I have a hard time co sleeping, I dont sleep well with the baby because im scared that something will happen, so in turn I dont sleep lol I do what I call "half sleeping" When LO is about 4 months old Ill move him/her into Charlottes room. So the 2 babies will share a room. If the baby is a girl they will share a room for just about all of their childhood, until my step daughter goes to college lol but if its a boy they will eventually have to have separate rooms and ill deal with that when the time comes lol Ill have a few years to figure out something, we have a room that we can make into another bedroom if/when the time comes
