Yeah, I might be a crunchy mommy. I'm all about medicine being a last resort, breastfeeding (extended when possible), natural birth (I have an advantage here of extremely short labors) and co-sleeping.
It's that last one that's been getting to me.
Now - co-sleeping evolved naturally for me. I discovered that it was fantastically easy to breastfeed and sleep at the same time. It was a win-win situation.
However, Adam is now 4 and hasn't breastfed in a long, long time. Yet 6 out of 7 nights, he's in my bed. We went for a long stretch there where he was in his own bed...and then a bought of nightmares brought him back to ours.
Here's my problem. He's so much bigger now. I don't know if you guys know this, but when a kid sleeps in your bed, they manage to take up 98% of the mattress. Every time. I don't know how it's possible, but it's true.
