It amazing how fast kids grow. I remember bringing my baby home from the hospital and placing him in his Moses basket. I remember him getting a cold at 8 weeks and making the transfer from the basket to my bed (sometimes when a baby gets a cold they get sleep apnea and that scared the pants off me). After that it was just too much of a struggle to put him in his cot as he kept waking up at night and I had to get some sleep in other to remain sane at work the next day. He would agree to sleep in his cot during the day however, once it was night he would kick up a storm if you placed him in it.
Now at 15 months my husband and I finally admitted to ourselves that we enjoy having him in our bed too much. How long are we going to keep him here? It was time to move him. That night as we slept I noticed that my baby had started placing his hand around me when he sleeps. Yep, the time had definitely come to move him before he gets too use to holding me that he refuses to sleep alone ever.
I cleared his cot which had become hubby’s dumping ground for his clothes. Friday was the big day since we expected a fuss. It was the end of the week so if he cried at least I had Saturday to rest.
This is how it played out. Baby slept soundly not even making a wink. Mummy didn’t sleep at all constantly fretting over peacefully sleeping baby. Daddy complained that the bed felt too big.
Missing him already. Wonder how moving him into his own room is going to go :-(. If there are any ex co-sleepers I would love to hear from you. Thanks
