How to get some real sleep when you co-sleep

We co-sleep with the kids. This is a problem when we need some real sleep. Now, we've got a way to fix the problem. We have a little adjoining room where hubby uses to get some work done. So when we need some real sleep we would separate the kids.

When they are together they have so much to chat about, they don't want to sleep. So we separate them. The boy may stay with me, the girl goes with her dad or I would sleep in the study on days that we want some real sleep.

We sometimes do this sleep arrangement during naptimes in the weekends but most days we still co-sleep. I love to co-sleep with the kids. Its the best time of the day to unwind together and chat or read with them. Its the best time of the day to bond with them.

How does anyone else get some real sleep when they co-sleep? Care to share?

  1. We usually sleep later then the kids so we don't have this problem leh.

  2. I thought I'm the weird one who still co-sleep with my 6 & 4 years old. Co-sleeping doesn't cause any real sleep problem to me though..once the light's off, means quiet time.

  3. lian,
    We sleep at the same time.

    Haha. Now you know theres another weird one out there.

  4. i used to sleep with A2 while I was nursing him for 2.5 yrs. Afterthat both boys sleep in their own room as the tend to talk in their sleep, LOL! Both boys will read b4 they go to bed & I make A2 read to me so that I know he understands the story 7 the diff words.

  5. i am in the same boat as you, still cracking our heads how to make them move to their own rooms one fine day.

  6. a&a'smom,
    Mine doesn't talk in their sleep but they certainly do some good kungfu moves. Haha.

    mommy of 3 angels,
    Actually, I think it will not be a problem to move them. I used to sleep with them on the bed but that gives me a bad night because of their kungfu moves so I sleep on the floor, they protest but only a little. I just haven't made the move to move them to their own room because of the logistics in my house. So for the time they stay in my room for security reasons.
