What's up with the grumpy face dude?
I have gone over to the dark side y'all. I'm a co-sleeper.... Something I hate to admit, but it's the truth. I'm not a "real" co-sleeper in that I don't co-sleep for the entire night, Just the wee- hours of the morning and I don't know if only a few hours of snuggling and spooning my baby constitute for actual co-sleeping??
The reason that I'm so anti co-sleeping is that I don't want Conrad interfering with me gettin my swerve on?? You get my drift here folks? Kids/babies who co-sleep don't allow their parents to get it poppin' in the sheets....I'm so hood.
Since we've now established a schedule (praise God, seriously, I was this close to ending it....He was driving us b-a-n-a-n-a-s!) So the night goes like this....Conrad has his bath, eats, and hits the sack at 6:30-7 every night. Then wakes up like clock work around 1-2 AM, we watch Jimmy Fallon, he goes back to bed in his crib, and then Dustin gets up for the 4 am feeding while I pump, and then before Dustin leaves for work, he brings the baby into bed to snuggle with me, we get up soon after for the 6 AM feeding. It's nap time from 9:00-11:00, then nap time again from 2:00-4:00, then bath and dinner and bed around 7 and so on and so on! The schedule doesn't leave much room for spontaneity, but it gives me sanity and Conrad is a MUCH happier baby. And he sleeps better too.
Dustin might kill me for posting a picture of his 70's porn chest hair....
So in conclusion, if you want to "do it" with your spouse, don't co-sleep. But there is nothing wrong with a little snuggle fest every once in a while (because it makes mommy feel so warm inside and I love when my baby falls back asleep and I stay up to smile and listen to his little snores. It makes me very happy!)
