Party at my (side car) crib tonight


My little family has been a bedsharing family since the early weeks of our little guy’s life.  He is now 8 months old and rolls all sort of ways while he is sleeping.  When he wakes up he is  active, rolling around, sitting up, crawling and climbing.  It has become a challenge having him sleep in between us.  I think the only one that was getting restful sleep in our family bed was our little guy.  As parents, we were struggling with how to continue bedsharing while also getting enough rest.  Then Laotion Commotion shared her side car images. (cue celebration music)  It was the perfect solution.

As guided by Laotion Commotion, we built our crib without assembling one of the four sides.  It is essentially a toddler bed pushed up against our bed.  We pushed the crib mattress up against our mattress and filled the empty space with rolled up sheets.  It has been over two weeks now and it has been working great.  The whole family has been getting more restful sleep.  Thanks Laotion Commotion!

Here are some images from our little set up:

For now, which one of these positions have you found your family in?
