When Piglet was a wee little baby, Hubs was deployed. I was a new mom who still worked full-time in the Army. Around 5 months, he stopped sleeping through the night. He went to bed at 7 and would wake up around 10, and he would refuse to go back to sleep.
So, we started co-sleeping. And we kept on co-sleeping until he was 14 months old. Hubs had been home for a month and wanted his bed and his wife back. It was a hard transition but Piglet finally got it and slept the whole night in his bed.
Fast forward to about a month ago.
Piglet keeps waking up in the night and sneaking in bed with us. Actually, at first it wasn’t sneaking. He would come to my side of the bed and wake me up. Usually just by standing there, being creepy. I would wake up and feel like someone was staring at me and there was. I would put him back in his bed but we would do this dance 2 or 3 more times.
But the third or fourth time, I was over it and he’d sleep in our bed. Remember, I’m working full-time now too. I need my sleep. But now he’s sneaky, he stays at the foot of the bed and crawls up in between us, usually bringing an army of stuffies with him. He takes one of my pillows and goes to sleep.
Sometimes, he sneaks in right after we put him to bed and I find him in there as I get ready to go to bed. On those days, I stick him back in bed and hope he stays there all night.
I’m not really sure why he suddenly won’t stay in his own bed all night but I hope he gets over it soon. This new baby is coming and I don’t need 2 of my babies in my room all night!
