Our second child is due in July.
Currently DS and I share a bed.
We can fit a cot in our room. I really, truly don't want to bed share with both kids and I especially am not comfortable bed sharing with a newborn.
We've had so many problems with DS's sleep that I want to try and do things different next time.
So I was thinking of putting the baby in its own room from day one. Our house is tiny so the room is right next door.
Just looking for some advice.
Should I try and get DS back into a cot in a separate room before hand? I don't even have a cot at the moment.
should I leave DS in bed with us and side car a cot to the foot of the bed and have the baby sleep in there? I am concerned about the baby waking my already frequent waking ds. I think one of the ways i ****ed up ds is by not letting him cry and feeding him when he became unsettled instead of waiting a few minutes before he went back to sleep.
Or should I keep DS in my bed and then put the baby in another bedroom and then one day hope that DS and his new siblings will share a room and bed.
ETA my biggest concern with DS being woken by the baby is that he only resettles with boob (I'm working on that) and I don't want to have to feed him back to sleep and try to settle the baby at the same time.
