So, here's the background:
LO bed-shares and has woken up more and more frequently the last few weeks (4-month wakefuls?). Typical night at the moment is every 2 hours to nurse for 1/2 hour...Yikes. I've been using tips from NCSS, etc., but it wasn't improving, so I asked the pedi for any additional advice. "Put him in his own room." Okay, no thanks, bed-sharing is the highlight of my day, go away pedi. I'd rather bed-share and be sleepy. Decided to just muscle through it....
Usually DS and I do the bedtime routine and then go to bed together. He jabbers and kicks and squirms beside me for about 20 minutes and then he's out....for 2 hours at the max. BUT, the last 2 nights DH did bedtime routine with DS while I was on the computer and before I knew it, DS was sleeping in his ARCS having gone to sleep without the comfort-nurse, without me in the room. And slept for 4 hours.
Oh hooray!!! (we think......) .....And then the horrible realization....does he sleep better in a separate bed from me? Say it ain't so....This could just be a coincidence, right?
So here I am, tired but not going to bed b/c DS is sleeping fine in his ARCS and I am up stewing about the fact that maybe he doesn't love bed-sharing as much as I do.....sigh.
