Soren said farewell to his baby bassinet two weeks ago. When he was swaddled and sleeping, his head and toes brushed the top and bottom of his bed — probably not the most comfortable way to sleep. Tim was ready to send Soren to his crib in his own room, but I couldn’t let my baby leave my side just yet.
Now he’s graduated to a bigger and better co-sleeper next to our bed, with plenty of space to kick his feet. He loves it so much he thanks us by occasionally sleeping seven or eight hours at a stretch. He doesn’t love daytime sleep, however, and rarely naps longer than 30 minutes. One day I told him I was going to run away from home if he didn’t shape up. That night he slept 10 hours, so I guess I’ll stick around.
