During my pregnancy I read quite a lot of articles and one topic was co-sleeping. Our first week at home with Cristiano, we were determined for him to sleep in his own cot because we were not going to spoil him by sleeping in our bed. I was also afraid of us rolling onto him while we sleep. Then one day my mom told me how she used to lay with me and my brother when we were babies and to try it so I could get some sleep while he sleeps. At first I wasn’t too sure about it, but went along.
So far, it was the best advice ever! I just love snuggling up with my boy after a hard day. Now some people may not agree with co-sleeping and that’s fine. I personally LOVE co-sleeping. Especially when I see how peaceful he sleeps in my arms or when I wake up to his beautiful face in the morning. Some mornings he wakes up without me knowing and when I open my eyes, there’s this big smile greeting me and my heart is bursting with joy! At this stage I cannot imagine having him sleep in his cot by himself, let alone his own room. I commend the mommies that can do that, but this mommy is beyond happy to be sharing her bed with her little bug.
Ps. I have so many pictures of Cristiano sleeping, it’s not even a joke!
