I'm trying to figure out, if I end up pregnant again soon, how I would bed share with a infant and and almost toddler?

I put the toddler between me and DH and the baby is on my other side. It works pretty good, though Eliana is a twitchy toddler and I often wake up with toes in my nose.

The only problem is hubby is a pretty heavy sleeper (and totally against bed sharing too lol).

Don't worry, toddlers are very good at, um, staking out their bed space the precautions you take for a tiny newborn, who can't even roll over and is still learning to regulate their breathing properly, are not necessary when they are big monkeys who can climb and walk and stuff!

I would worry more about getting your DH on board first. It is his bed too.

I don't think I will ever get him fully on board. He thinks its a bad habit, spoiling your child, and will make them clingy.

That's too bad DH isn't on board.
I would suggest side carring a crib.

Are you trying to get pregnant right away?

Wow! Did you get your period already? (you mentioned here or in another post that you were still nursing). My period didn't come back until 15 months!

AF arrived last week, I had a feeling it would, as a couple weeks prior I was pretty sure I ovulated...
If it hasn't arrived I was gonna be peeing on a stick lol as we DTD at that time too.

You could be experiencing breakthrough bleeding too. I remember I stopped bleeding at 3 weeks, and then got what I thought was a period around 6 weeks post partum. My doctor called it "breakthrough bleeding" when AF didn't come again.

Nothing after that though.

Good luck either way!!!
