I'm happy to report the sidecar crib worked great last night. We just need to stuff a few extra pillows in the crack between mattresses. But I was able to swing over into the crib to nurse a few times last night and otherwise have the bed for just me and Rich. The things we'll do to all get good sleep.
It's the time change weekend but thankfully our son sleeps in on the weekend so he was up at 7:15 and happy to read in bed.
He actually pointed at a cat in a book and after his typical meow said "kitty". Alert the ivy leagues! Boy genius!
