Oh, This is working out…

Jacob has been sleeping in the bed with Renee, and the last two nights, I tried sleeping in our bed. Wednesday night was a little tough, but I caught a few hours. last night, Jacob was pigging up the bed!

He’s 2 weeks old! How can he take up almost half of a queen sized bed?

Needless to say, I slept on the couch. Mostly because my ass was hanging out of our bed…

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I have obnoxious dogs, so not like I’m an expert (ha)… but isn’t it a bad idea to sleep with a baby? I thought #1 it’s possible to squish them and #2 it creates a dependance where they will cry/freak out if forced to sleep alone?

  2. alchemist says:

    #1 is an aclimation thing. How often do you attempt to roll over on the dogs? In any case, this seems to be a Western concern, since the “family bed” is practiced in “less civilized” coutries with very few instances of daddy/mommy squishing baby.

    #2 is the one that *REALLY* concerns me. The “sleep in bed with Mommy/Daddy” habit is a hard to break.

    But, in the long run, it’s more her decision than mine, at least while he’s breastfeeding. if she finds it easier to roll over and feed him than to get out of bed, get him up, etc, etc – then I’ll live with sleeping on the couch for a while….
