I’ve read all those books – The Farber Method, “Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child”, and I know everyone has their own opinions on co-sleeping. I’ve heard everything from “You will crush your baby in it’s sleep” to “American women make their babies sleep in cages”. The Goon Squad slept in a co-sleeper next to our bed for six weeks and then in our bed with us for six months. Claudia made it into a crib before her brother, she is just a little bit more independent.
Now, at a year and a half, they go down every nap and every night in their own cribs and usually without much of a fuss. Lately in the middle of the night almost every night they end up in our bed until morning. Gabe and I have been letting it go. They are in a new environment and it is a lot colder than Florida and our house needs new windows so their room is a little bit chilly.
Anyway, last night (besides Ian kicking the crap out of everbody and Claudia, my OCD baby, incessantly tapping her baby’s hard plastic head on her pacifier) both children peed through their diapers and pajamas.
I think I have a good point here.
