I still have my 2 year old in bed with me. My husband works out of town(hardly home), and Liam just has never taken to sleeping in his own space. Luckily we have a king sized bed. Oh and he still nurses to sleep and night nurses. I have tried to not nurse him to bed but it turns out to be bad each time and I end up caving so that I can get my rest that I wont be getting soon. Im just very nervous what im going to do with him and Mila at night. Any btdt mommies have tips or advice?! Im torn. I thought for sure Liam would have at least weaned this pregnancy, but he hasnt and I have only been producing colustrum since November. So when my milk comes in I dont know whats gonna happen.
Hmmmmmm, what does your heart say? You can make anything work. If you're going to make changes, I'd make them now.
DD is back in our room after being in her room all night for over a year. It's really not my ideal situation but it's better than her screaming all night because she's having nightmares. I night weaned her at 18 months using a drawn out version of the Jay Gordon method as we were still cosleeping. It required help from DH. She did wean during this pregnancy and I'm grateful for it. Honestly though, I'd happily trade nursing her to sleep over having her in our room. She's on a Shrunks blow up toddler bed next to our king sized bed. So, she's close but not in bed with us. I'd be really nervous with both her and the new baby in our bed. I know people do it but I don't think I could handle it. So, floor it is.
If I were you, I'd keep nursing him to sleep but night wean him. Your boobs are going to be tied up and nighttime is no time for boob envy. I'd also work on getting him at least in his own space. Be it on the floor or side-carred in a crib. King size bed or no, it'll be safer to have him have a separate space from baby. But that's just what I'd do ... or at least try to do because we all know that these things are easier said than done.
