When I was pregnant for the first time, I had visions of my husband, my baby, and I all sleeping peacefully in the same bed. All three of us, together and safe, as a family, straight through the night.
That lasted about a week before I realized that my baby didn’t know basic bed etiquette, like not kicking people in the face while they’re lying next to you, and not pulling mommy’s hair while she’s having a wonderful dream.
But once you’ve brought your baby into your bed, it can be extremely difficult to get them out. We’re creatures of habit when it comes to sleep, and change is never welcomed gracefully.
So today, I have a few tips to help you if you’ve decided to reclaim your bed and get your little one sleeping in their own room. It’s not going to be easy, I’ll warn you, but with some determination and a little knowledge, it should be over in a couple of nights.
