What will you do during the middle of the night as far as lighting goes if you are rooming with baby?
I will be breast feeding and of course, DH can't really help with that, so I won't wake him up unless it's necessary. I am guessing we will just use a lamp so that I can see.. or maybe just leave the closet & bathroom lights on so I can see better. This won't really be an issue for us except for first couple of weeks as DH will be shipping off to bootcamp shortly after our son's birth
What type of lighting will you be using when baby awakes for a mid-night feeding?
I never breastfed Logan but we left our bedroom door ajar & left the hall way light on at night. We found that it was enough light to see with but not enough to wake Logan up completely so he settled back down easily after a feed.
This time around Im not sure what were do as Im breast feeding & me, DF & baby #2 will be sleeping in my mums front room - Logan will be sharing a bedroom with my brother. I may buy a small night light but Im unsure as all the plug sockets are behind things like units & the sofa so we light wont be been & it will be hard to turn on.
