Up until three days ago he slept in our big bed with us. He is still breastfeeding and bed-sharing makes it very easy to nurse him at night. But now my little piggy is a big 7-month-old and he can go all night without waking up to eat. When he was a tiny baby the risk of SIDS really scared me and I felt so much better with him close by. But in the last week or so my whole thought process shifted. I suddenly felt the urgent need for MY space and MY sleep. It makes me feel a tinge selfish. But I know that at some point my own parents had to make me sleep in my own crib. I don't remember that moment and have no long term grudges held against them because of it. So I'm really hoping that my son will follow in my footsteps.
