The Beauty of Co-Sleeping...

~ Posted on Saturday, August 14, 2010 at 1:12 AM ~

Ben co-sleeps with hubby and myself - even today, at 17 months plus...

(it's so convenient cos' I'm still breastfeeding Ben anyway!)

I'm a full-time mummy

Picture above of Ben (4 days old) sleeping next to his tired mummy...

We initially placed him in the baby crib but he nursed almost every 1-2 hours during the first week and I got real tired having to wake up, bend over, carried Ben out, nursed him, then put him back to the crib, and try to sleep again. You see, I'm a light sleeper so any slight sound or movement will make me awake...

One time when I was really really tired, I carried Ben out during one of his nursing time, lie on my side, placed Ben next to me and continue sleeping and he just nursed on. After that time, I repeated it again, and Ben continued nursing while he's asleep (I found out much later that it's called dream feeding) and so, the story of how we all ended up sleeping on the same bed begins...

Seeing this comic brings me smiles cos this is how it is when we all co-sleep at night... Of course, most of the time hubby ended up sleeping on the single bed which is right next to our King sized bed,all thanks to Benjamin who conquered most of the bed space!


Now, during the day time when Ben takes his nap, his sleeping styles are also a fun thing to watch!

Hahahah... Enjoy!

I applaud those who breastfeed and cosleep - I myself just couldn't do it.  (Did breastfeed for a time but not near as long as you & I can't STAND having someone that close to me in the bed!  lol!)

Ben is such a cutie!!

Co-sleeping with Isabelle is one of the best thing that ever happened to me in my journey of mummyhood. Not to mention, I have the smallest spot on the bed now, most of the time on the edge. And watching all her sleeping 'patterns & positions' is so fun, even in the middle of the night when I spot her funny position, I wake hubby up to witness it. Smile

Hi Cheri!
Yeah, I too don't feel anything wrong with co-sleeping! Thank you so much for the awards!

Hey Catheryn!
My trick is to plop Ben more to his daddy's side of the bed, cos Ben tends to roll over to myself (to nurse) and that actually gives me space enough without having to sleep on the floor hahahah...


Photo of him sleeping - so adorable. My 2 sons had never share the same bed with me. I can't sleep well with a tiny fragile fellow in between. Yeah, waking up and bending over to feed him etc is very tiring. Have a nice weekend
