I broke one of my "rules"...
I've always said Eli will never sleep in bed with us. I don't have anything against bed sharing, I just didn't want to do it. Probably because I slept with my dad until I was 7. He got me out of the crib one night when I was sick and I would never sleep in my crib again. But after several nights of Eli waking up every 30 mins - an hour, I had to get some sleep! I wouldn't mind him sleeping with us so much if we had a king size bed. There just wasn't enough room and he burned me up!

Re: I broke one of my "rules"...
Rules are made to be broken :p Seriously though, we have all reached the point where you do what you have to. As long as baby is safe, any rule can be broken. I brought our eldest into our bed often as he never slept. When he got to be age 2, we convertyed his crib into a full size bed. Some nights I would lay next to him to gt him to sleep but he used his own bed. It will work out in time.

I said this too, but broke it very early on. It was the only way I could get sleep. Then I decided he needed to sleep in the bassinet and then the crib and he wouldn't sleep peacefully in the bed with me anymore and I was sad because I wasn't getting sleep with him anywhere. Now he finally will sleep peacefully in the bed again, but not for a long time. I try to keep him in his crib most of the night and then bring him in the bed at 4 or 5 or 6. Just because I'm tired of getting up by that point and I always hope it will make him sleep. I would let him sleep anywhere if it meant he would actually sleep! You gotta do what you gotta do!

I always said the same, but I'm glad I broke it. :)
