    It is probably a good idea to start making the transition from co-sleeping to cot in the next couple of months. You'll find that not all newborns stay awake all night. I have a 6 weeks old and she only wakes once a night for a feed.

    Are you planning on transitioning your first child into their own cot/room before the new baby comes?

    My boys are 16 months apart but as my eldest was in a cot in his own room his sleep wasn't disrupted by his little brother (who slept in a bassinet in our room to start with) once he was born.

    If it was me, I would work towards bub sleeping alone over the next 3 months. Could still be same room if you prefer but for me I wouldn't be able to work both cospleeing. Others might have more experience with it though. You do have a lot of time up your sleeve to do it gradually.

    I co-slept with two little ones, one on either side of me, my older son didn't get disturbed in the night by the baby after a while as he got used to it. I actually tandem night nursed for about 18 months

    I currently co sleep with my 2yo, and 4month old babe is in a bassinet beside the bed. I'm currently looking into getting a toddler bed, or my other idea is banging the cot up against the bed with babe in there and leaving 2yo til she's ready. You never know what your babe my do, my second is a champion sleeper. Generally only wakes once in the night, if not sleeping through. Theres occasionally double grizzles, it was crap in the early days when they both woke, but it passes and gets easier and you manage somehow. They get used to arrangements eventually. I tandem fed when the going got tough.
