There are only two bedrooms total on the floor with our bedroom, and we are not ready for the kids to be too far away yet. Now we are going to see how sharing a room goes.
The plan, move her crib to Big Brother’s room, and put BB (Big Brother) in our room on a mattress on the floor for a few days until we get LS(Little Sister) sleeping through the night. This is because we are trying to avoid a double wake up of BOTH children while we work on training her to sleep through the night.
After she gets used to the new room, and hopefully not waking up more than once a night, we will move BB back into the room with her. Now, I am just wondering how we are going to keep BB from climbing in the crib with LS because he loves to cuddle. One step at a time J
Although it feels like the right time for us personally, my heart still goes pitter patter thinking of her being in another room. Our son was in his own room earlier. I guess it is just the thought of not seeing her beautiful sleeping face close by that gets to me. It is funny how change can be difficult sometimes even if it feels like the right thing to do. Better sleep means happier Mommy, Daddy, and we hope Baby.
Do you have any advice on young children sharing a room? If not you, do you know someone who might? Feel free to share because we are open to hearing any tips.
Stay tuned for how this all plays out...
