Not in the same bed. Our nearly two year old boy is now in a toddler bed in the same room about a metre away from our bed. I'll be co-sleeping with bub #2 in that bed when he/she arrives end of next month.
If you've been in a similar situation, how did your toddler manage with the inevitable night time waking of the newborn? Just wondering what to expect. Thanks.

Co-sleeping with toddler and newborn
22-06-2014 14:02 #2
I had my 2yr old son in bed on one side and baby in the other side. He just got used to it TBH, it was a bit disruptive to start with as of course newborns are, but when breastfeeding was going well, and bub was simply latching on in the bed, there really was minimum disturbance.
I was actually dreading it, and it was a lot less difficult than I anticipated, my baby unfortunately had colic, and screamed a lot more than usual, which certainly upset me, but my 2yr old wasn't really phased at all and slept through most of it lol.

I have co-slept on and off with my 3 yr old twins & 18 mth ds.... Many night all four of us end up in the bed. It's been fine mostly... everyone, except me, sleeps through any night time wakings. The trickiest bit is in the morning... The twins are early risers & once ds hears them, then he is up to, so he probably gets robbed of a bit of sleep. Good luck!
