I am thinking I may need to transition my 11 months into a crib. I currently have a side carred crib set up for him and have been loving it. I am expecting our second child in October and don't know if I can co-sleep with both. I want to, but I don't want to risk Peter hurting Mouse (New baby) by accident.... WDYT?

One of my good friends co-sleeps with her newborn and 2 y/o. Couldn't you just have Peter in the side-car crib on one side of you and the new baby on the other side between you and your DH?

I've co slept with both since the day we brought ds home. The crib is side carred and Lilly sleeps in that. We have a king bed and Oliver sleeps between dh and I.

This arrangement works out great and we all love it.

Our doula has 6 kids(infant to teen) and on any given night has up to 4 of them in her bed. They have a king sized mattress on the floor with a twin pushed up on either side.
