Hi all! I'm new to this board. We're a co-sleeping family and it's been pretty great but I am looking for ideas on how to wean my son when it's time. I'm interested in hearing how others did it and how long they co-slept. Please share!
My son just turned 1 last week. He starts off the night in his crib (in his room) or PNP in our room. Then comes into our bed anywhere from 10-2:30. He sleeps in the middle of DH and I. For naps, he's in his PNP or crib or on me (like now).
He is a horrible sleeper in his crib, waking up every 10-30 minutes.
I have no idea if this would be workable for you or not, but we have recently had to teach our DD how to sleep on a pallet on the floor (near our bed) for naps and at night before we go to bed (so she doesn't fall off the bed) - would it be possible for you to try something like that with your DS? Then if he wakes up during the night, maybe go lay down with him on the pallet until he falls asleep or is comfortable by himself and then you returning to your bed?
The paci just might be the thing that helps "normalize" the situation for him! (It does for our dd!!)
We've even considered with our DD putting her crib mattress on the floor as her pallet since it will be the same mattress we'll eventually be putting in her toddler bed when she's old enough. When the time comes, we plan to slowly move the toddler bed out of our room!
I'm sure there are more experienced mommies with some good tips!
I have sucessfully moved 2 children out of our bed,for the most part. heehee We made their rooms and bed very inviting. I let them each pick out the bed and sheets and other nick nacks. By the time we finished each transitioned pretty easily. We do have nights where they creep back in and I have to admit, I love it. B
