We have 2 labs, one giant and one small, and a kitty. They are our furkids, so before we even get started, this post is *not* about re-homing or anything like that, it's not an option.
Our situation at the moment is, the doggies sleep in our room on the floor, and usually come up on to our bed halfway through the night (it's a king size so it's not too squishy, except when the big one insists on lying across the bed instead of length ways ). The cat also usually sleeps snuggled with me or somewhere in the house.
The cat, I'm thinking, is going to have to be shut out of our room whilst the baby is in a bassinet with us, and then later shut out of it's room, to avoid her getting in with the baby The dogs however shouldn't be able to actually get to the baby whilst it's in it's bassinet or cot (obviously we would always be in the room at the same time, wouldn't leave baby unattended with doggies), so I'm thinking it shouldn't really be a problem. But MIL keeps saying she doesn't think we should have them in with us anymore once bub is here. There is an option to have them out in the front room, but I don't know if this is going to be necessary.
So my question is, if you were ever in a similar situation to us sleeping wise, what was your experience? What did you do? Did your dog/s continue to sleep in your room, or did you kick them out?
Interested to hear other people's stories =)
