Comfort in Co-Sleeping

January 28, 2011 at 2:30 PM Leave a comment

Several months ago I started getting sore hips from our co-sleeping arrangement, so we rearranged our bed furniture to allow Naomi and I to sleep on the other side of the bed. For awhile this worked out fine. But not long after, our once easy sleeper started cranking and tossing, fussing and struggling before finally falling asleep. It might take up an hour for this.

We decided that perhaps it was time to rearrange our bed once more, but with an addition: the crib.

With a little rearrangement, we pushed the crib up against the wall, the bed up against the crib, and gave it a try.

To our absolute delight, it worked wonders. We have rearranged our nap and bedtime routines as such: After a diaper change, we put her in a sleep sack and turn on our crashing waves CD. Then we settle her in and I curl up beside her, and we quietly nurse. When Naomi has nursed enough, she simply rolls away from me and goes to sleep. Peaceful, quiet, pleasant, loving.

How about you? How do you co-sleep with your baby?

Also, for any who have encountered arguements against co-sleeping from uncooperative spouses, family members, or friends, here’s an excellent article detailing the many benefits, backed up by science.
