So before I had this sweet baby girl, I SWORE up and down that I would NOT allow her to sleep in bed with me. I basically thought that co-sleeping was the worst idea ever...NOW DD sleeps in bed with me every night. And, I have to admit that I actually enjoy it! lol
Since I am EBFing her, it's so nice to have her right there with me. I can nurse her on my side and we both drift back to sleep. She cries less and sleeps more now. The first few days home, I had her in her bassinet beside the bed. One very sleepy night after pulling her in bed for a feeding, we both fell asleep. I woke up to her, 5 hours later! It was like HEAVEN! Ever since then, I have had her in bed with me and we both sleep so much better now.
If you were like me and dissed co-sleeping before actually trying it, I highly recommend you bite the bullet and just try it! You will thank me later, when you wake up feeling rested.
