Before I had Kunmi, I was firmly against co-sleeping , I was never ever ever going to let my child sleep in bed with me , I remember being at some birthday party and I was talking to this Dad about marriage and babies and he said to me just wait till he starts getting in bed with you and I was thinking to myself this guy doesn’t know who I am , I am supermum that is never going to happen.
Oh wellllll it happened men , it happened so bad I think I have to fast and pray about it , Baba God has to change things around. It all started when we moved Kunmi into his baby cot before then he had his bassinet , which he was in love with but after he moved into the big boy cot , he would never sleep in there for more than 2 hours. He will just keep waking up and will only sleep if he is in our bed.
Now you all know I love Kunmi but he is horrible at sleeping lol , he sleeps like a break dancer that keeps dancing even in his sleep , he is always moving so one of us (Timi or I) always end up having zero space on the bed.
It also doesn’t help that there is no late night cuddling or accidental (it just happened) late night skelewu’ing aka baby making sessions which is good for me because I am not ready for another baby.
So I have come to a point where I have no idea how to stop this but I will figure it out eventually because it drives me crazy, I am constantly waking up to check if he is still breathing (Co-sleeping can cause Sudden Infant death syndrome) or if he has covered his face with the duvet. That is when I discovered my watchman talent , I would be a kiss ass gate man lol.
Does your baby sleep in bed with you? Is this something your ok with? Let me know.
