Many women, while still in position, think about where their future baby will sleep. Be sure to buy or take from relatives, and maybe even comes from the attic, cot. It is placed in the most comfortable and comfortable place so that there is no drafts and darkness, but not too bright. And here is such a beautiful bed, covered with a children’s blanket and hung with rattles, and bored. Yes, it has always been like this in our home.
My method of dealing with the restless sleep of a child
It is even a shame to say, and maybe vice versa, but none of my four children began to sleep in the crib. They could sit to play in it, but not for long. By year, the bed occupied the best place in the house, and then it was sorted out, wrapped in paper and sent to the attic. What’s the matter? And the fact is that I have always loved to sleep. The nights spent near the cot exhausted me greatly.
I encountered this problem immediately upon discharge from the hospital. Baby woke up 3-4 times a night. God, I still remember it with horror. In the end, I began to lay her next to me on the bed. The girl was sleeping between me and my husband. I must say, my husband sleeps very sensitively. The fear that he might pin down a child in a dream did not even bother me.
The child began to sleep much calmer, and I began to get enough sleep. The slept woman is a caring mother and a tender wife. At the birth of subsequent children, the issue with the crib did not cause any difficulties. She was no longer given the best place.
Our big bed moved there, which replaces the baby and mother with a place to sleep and play, as well as to feed. And the bed began to huddle in the corner in case the child needs to be put in a safe place for the time of a short absence in the kitchen or in the bathroom (this is until the child crawls).
Other options for saving sleepless nights
I heard about this option: one side wall is removed from the cot, and it is installed close to the common bed. Baby next to my mother, it is easy to reach out with his hand, it is easier to put to bed and do not have to bend over through the inconvenient lattice. Some of my friends only escaped from sleepless nights.
There are many opinions for and against the fact that the baby should sleep next to the mother. Grandmothers frighten us by the fact that the infant can be fitted, in other words, to crush it with a powerful breast. But with my second size it does not threaten me. It is good that even physicians now advise stacking the baby next to you. The child half asleep stretches to his chest, immediately gets it, eats up and sleeps further.
And the woman is much simpler: you do not have to jump up from the cry of an awakened baby, run for diapers, change the diaper, and then call for a hour for the evaporated sleep and count the sheep. Dry diapers lie next to the pillow, and for used diapers, there is a basin next to the bed. A hand through a dream itself throws a heavy diaper into a basin.
There is an opinion that the child will get used to sleep next to the parents almost to school. About three years my children begin to sleep separately, and without whims. Before them is an example of older sisters. Each woman has her own opinion on this issue, I shared my experience with a large (and lazy) mother.
