"There were five in the bed...."

.......and the little one said "roll over, roll over".....

Our babies slept in our bed for the first 6 months of their life, and they still occasionally seek us out in the night. A mass invasion like this, with all 3 children climbing into our bed in the night, is rare.
It was a bit of a squish, and as soon as MOTH and I got up in the morning they spread out.

Co-sleeping beyond those first 6 months was not a conscious decision, it just happened that way. But I am happy to provide a middle of the night snuggle. I believe it will come to a natural end as the children mature, and I will probably miss waking up with a little one curled up at the foot of the bed, or sleeping peacefully next to me. (The boys are really quiet and still sleepers, and most of the time I don't even wake up when they crawl into our bed).

I could look at their sleeping faces for ever.....


  1. Yay, we co-sleep too! Well, not every night anymore but I just love waking up next to Erno (Adiel is a very rare visitor now) and snuggle together. When they were smaller we bought a bigger bed to fit us all in it comfortably.
