This week we are talking about sleeping arrangements with children. Check out what our reader said:
"My second baby is due in about three months, and I have a bunch of questions related to having two kids.
Sleeping arrangements: The baby will most likely sleep in my bedroom with my husband and I for the first little while, but I am wondering about later on when she moves into the other bedroom with my older daughter (she'll be 2 by then). Any suggestions on a toddler and an infant sharing a room?"
This is an excellent question! So help her out:
Does your baby share a room with your toddler?
If not, what are the sleeping arrangements in your house?
Do you put your kids (that share a room) to bed at the same time or at different times?
Do your children keep each other awake or wake each other in the morning?
How do you combat common sleeping problems with children sharing a room?
How do you deal with nursing in the night if your baby is in with another child?
Give us some general tips on kids sleeping in the same room.
Look for more awesome questions about having more than one child (these will be coming in the weeks ahead). This question came from a reader named Laura Wampler who will be joining the panel. Thank you Laura for your awesome questions and for being willing to jump into the authorship of The Village.
