I wouldn’t have known the difference before I read McKenna’s book on it! A lot of people co-sleep with their babies and don’t know it. 😉

Apparently we were planning to co-sleep, are now co-bedding, and need to read up! lol

We don’t have any other children. I don’t know, our living room is pretty comfortable, plus we have access to the kitchen for drinks, we have the tv for “inspirational” erm… viewing. For us it works out. She won’t be sleeping in our bed until she’s 12.

I forgot that the living room is now our go to place!
She’s 20 months now and we still have her crib in our bedroom because of financial reasons. She mainly sleeps in her “big girl” crib but will sometimes wake up during the night and crawl in with me. I should mention that Fiance works nights so we often get together very early in the morning before she’s awake (since it’s like his night time). You can find time for intimacy as long as you want it! You get very creative when your libido is running the show. 😉

Yea…. I don’t think I would care if DH was okay with it, I’d be like “Well I need some ‘attention'” lol I already have DS so I know that for a period certain priorities will surely change, but that’s a really important one for me. =)
Yea… the living room is good at night b/c DS rarely wakes up and if he does he’s upstairs anyways…. I still really like my lock on the door for some afternoon delight though! lol
Thanks for clarifying! I talked to DH about it today and he’d already assumed the baby would be in our room for atleast the first few months anyways so co-sleeping looks like the directions we’ll be going for the first 6 mths till I can get a good sleep schedule down so baby doesn’t disturb DS too much (they’ll be sharing a room for the 1st year)
Lol.. yea DH and I are already pretty creative with DS around. lol
Thanks so much ladies! I’m feeling better about it and know that even if it is imposing, it’s not forever. lol

From the newborn to 3 months stage, Dear Daughter slept in a co-sleeper attached to the bed or her bouncy chair. After that, she slept in her crib in the nursery at naps, and we put her in the crib first thing at night so we could have access to our bedroom without waking her up. We often clean or watch tv in the bedroom at night, so I wouldn’t bring her to bed with us until we were ready to actually go to sleep. At 11-ish months, we transitioned her to her crib full-time. It worked out pretty well, so hopefully we’ll use the same pattern with #2!
