Missing Him Already

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.

Baby Cot

LO in his cot. What it looks like now and what it used to look like with DH clothes piled in it.

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

  1. lol..Yours was better,he was still in same room.
    I had my daughter in my bed till she was almost 2.Hubby was relegated to spare room.
    I made so much effort to decorate her room but to no avail.
    When she turend 2,I knew I have had enough.
    Now she sleeps peacefully in her own bed in her room.
    I`m enjoying my bed now..

    • For now I cant even think of him in another room. Before this I wont have classed myself as an attachment parent. Goes to show you don’t know how you would react to a situation until you are in it.

  2. I don’t look forward to the day my daughter leaves our bed! Can’t imagine the emptiness our bed will feel like!

  3. You are very lucky if he sleeps all thru the night without waking up. Mine sleeps for some hours and then she’s up and crying for attention…sometimes she refuses petting until you bring her to our bed and then she cuddles on either mum or dad.

  4. Firstly I must commend your blog..loving it lately…More grace and next levels in Jesus name. Any ways back to the topic before I start my prophecy marathon..lol. My lil daughter Angel will gladly sleep in her cot but jumps unto our bed any-time she feels like..Big sister wouldn’t even share her room. from 18mths we tried to prep her for the arrival of her sister so we moved her whilst I was pregnant, so she kind of got the message that we needed her to grow up quickly and begin to take responsibilities Asper big sister. We had a scary incident where we saw her sleep walking down the stairs not knowing where she was. Daddy had to immediately put in a safety gate in the kids room.

    I would advice that you train him to stay on his bed on his own so you can spend quality time with hubby *wink* cos with busy schedules in the day, am sure as a couple you want to catch up and not have Mr man interrupting..lol.

    • Lol. Thanks for stopping by. Will definitely persevere. I can imagine the scare of seeing your daughter sleep walking down the stairs. Truly Its God that looks after these children.
