I’m a single mum with two kids both who have Coslept with me (yes, I’m aware of the dangers before anyone starts) and now both sleep in their own beds without a problem. My problem is I’m used to cuddling them at night and used to their fidgeting to the point I can’t sleep now… How can I improve my sleep? Did anyone else go through this? What tips would people suggest?
Try a body pillow or stuffed animal? Also, idk how long it’s been, but just give it some time. Getting used to sleeping a different way takes time.
I haven’t. Still sleeping with my 5 and 3 yo. I just can’t quit them. They are addictive.
Oh, how I miss sleeping with my babies!!!
Get a kitty or an older doggo they love to cuddle.
Weighted blanket and pregnancy pillow.
If suggest you have way more problems going on than that. This is not normal or natural in my humble opinion.
Cats are good to cuddle with
If they were anything like sleeping with my 5yo put a cat in a pillow case in bed with you
I sleep with my 6 year old and always will till she wants her bed
Mine is 10 months and I absolutely love his cuddles🥰 he throws his arms around me and rests his head on my shoulder if he sees us walking towards his crib🤣 he knows I’ll put him with us if he does that. Little smarty pants. Yeah, I know, they say don’t co-sleep. TO EACH THEIR OWN.
You will adjust! My husband just started a new job where hes gone for weeks at a time
It took me a week and a half to get use to sleeping alone. Im still off but at least sleeping better than when he left.
Get a dog lol. Try a weighted blanket.
I have a dog you can borrow!! Lol in all seriousness, maybe try a body pillow??

I didn’t ask this question, but I totally could have!!! I co-slept with my oldest till he was 5 (single mom, then remarried and hubby deployed), my second was not a co-sleeper (I tried, he wasn’t a snuggle bug ), and my last baby is 9 and mostly in her bed now. I miss it too. I can’t sleep. I was so accustomed to her moving around, throwing her little leg over me…
yeh my kid always sleeps in her own bed and last night I thought we would cuddle and sleep all cute but I woke up at 3 am with her running a marathon on my face
Find a boyfriend lol
a body pillow… cuddle with that… itll help and wont wake you up lol
