We’ve been a co-sleeping family since our first. Nothing as spectacular as having multiple babes in our bed though.
Not because we don’t believe in it or anything — it just didn’t work out for us that way. I’m a firm subscriber to not subscribing to any one way of doing things in the parenting realm.
With Wyndham, he was up far too much throughout the night for it to work long-term. So, at about 10 months we began gentle sleep training. Not as hard-core as the Ferber method, more of a slow elimination. Abby is now 6 months and we’d like to begin the process with her. She and her bro will be sharing a room, so the process will need even more delicacy I think.
The mister and I are also amazons and while we share a king size bed, having a co-sleeper next to our bed would be ideal as we make this transition with Abby from our bed, to her own bed, to eventually having her bed in a shared room with her brother. I began looking around the internets for inspiration and found some fabulous looks and ideas. After the jump.
Are you a co-sleeping family? What are some of the hacks you’ve created to make a safe co-sleeping bed?
