    I belive too in doing nothing but bear bones housecleaning cleaning and other stuff when I'm getting no sleep....

    IS there anything you can cut so you can get a rest at least one time a day.


    I used to start supper and hubby would finish it up and I would go and nap even if it was just for 20 mins or so.

    I know what you mean about needing a break and just wanting to get away thats way normal!
    Sleep Andrea! I'll lose sleep. But then again, I'm losing it anyway. I don't know how to do it. I mean, do I put them next to each other, or in separate beds? Lulu likes someone next to her but K kicks around. It could be a challenge.

    sarah will sometimes go and get in bed with phillip....
    He doesn't like it but he refuses to sleep on the top bunk so thats what he gets. And he's afraid to have his door closed. Its a double on the bottom so its not like its a twin.
    IF you would go and get in her bed and leave her with your hubby what would she do?


    I used to do that sometimes too.

    Well I leave them together in the mornings to get K ready for school but DH's is on this kick of not participating in the nighttime parenting beyond putting K to bed.

    I'm going to put DS and DD in together when I finally get them out of my bed. DS cannot sleep without a body next to him and I am not a fan of it either, so it seems natural to me
    proud but exhausted working mammy to two high needs babies

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.


    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    I started nightweaning dd at about 15 mos b/c I was pg and my nips were so sore and my milk was just about gone. I would start her off in her own bed and then she came into our bed at the first waking which was like 2 hrs max after I got her down. What helped was when she wanted to nurse I would let her lay on top of me to soothe her back to sleep. Some nights it worked and some nights it didn't. After a while though she started nursing less and less. She still woke up but she wasn't nursing and clingy and hurting me. Maybe that will help to at least give you a small break from nursing. Night time parenting is so hard. Esp when DH doesn't help.
