Back To Co-Sleeping...With A Twist!
We had good nights (sleeping through the night...with only one middle-of-the-night nursing session) and we had bad nights (wanting to nurse every 2 hours plus crying bouts due to teething).
The "bad nights" outweighed the good.
And I was getting tired. Exhausted. Slightly angry.
I prayed for an answer.
I know God heard my prayers, but I swear I heard Him chuckle a few times ("hahaha! She *said* she wanted a baby! Hahaha! Wonder if she'll still be wanting more after a few more weeks of this...").
Yesterday, I had an epiphany.
Okay, so it was really a blog post that I read on FaceBook.
But epiphany sounds so much more grand, doesn't it?!
It was instructions on how to convert your crib into a co-sleeper! Basically, you just remove the side if the crib that slides up & down, secure the crib to your bed (they used heavy duty bungee straps) & (after a few more slight adjustments) there you have it!
A co-sleeping crib!
Out of sheer desperation, we rigged ours up last night. We still need to do a few tweaks, but it worked like a dream!
Now my husband, I and Austin each have enough space to stretch out PLUS we're still co-sleeping!
I love the internet! LOL
