I've tried on many nights to move him to his sidecar, but as SOON as I move him, he's awake and crying. I'm so nervous about the new baby coming and how the situation will all work out. DS has never been an "easy" baby to get to sleep and our routine can take up to 1.5 hours.
Poor DH has ended up on the couch the majority of the nights over the last year and I just don't want that to be the case! I'm wondering how we will all fit into the bed... and what is safe.
I've had (of course) the regular suggestions... "He needs his own bed", "you have to start sometime..." and the truth is, I'm feeling GUILTY because I have never let him learn how to comfort himself back to sleep. Ever since birth, (he's my first birth baby), I have literally been right there, or RUN to him at the first sign of stirring. The few times I've attempted to "be tough" and see if he'll fall back asleep he just ends up getting increasingly upset, wakes right up, and I end up in there after a minute anyway.
So that's my dilemma, it's nice to have a place here to post where I'm sure that many loving moms have dealt with the same or similar problem.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions & guidance! :-)
