Those Special Moments with Closer to Nature
I used to co-sleep with my son. I loved it! He’s my first-born so I went against all the advice and did what I wanted to do at the time. Admittedly it led to a few sleeping issues later but I wouldn’t change it though. It was the best feeling in the world. I couldn’t imagine him being anywhere but in my arms.
As he got bigger, it got less cute. The constant breastfeeding, dead arms, kicks in the head, sleepless nights. So in the cot he went. I missed him so much. I missed those cuddles and having him so close but every morning I get that feeling back just for a little while.
I hear him cry ‘Mummy’ when he wakes and after changing his nappy he comes in bed with me. Hub has gone to work so it’s just us. We cuddle and watch Peppa Pig and I tell him how much I love him. Mummy’s little prince. He babbles incessantly to me and slobbers me with kisses. ‘Mummy I wub you!’ he says. I wub you too!! It’s my favourite moment of closeness with him.
I know it won’t last long so I’m savouring it. The time is going so quickly, he won’t have a bar of it soon and I’ll have another baby to look after too which makes these moments with him even more special.
Half an hour of love and hugs before our day starts and the tantrums begin!
