My first four babies had a baby bed and they did use it some but mostly they
slept with us. I did nurse them and it was just easier to have them in bed wth
me. When Luke came along Jake was almost three and we had put the baby bed up
and just didn’t bother getting it back out. We needed the room anyway. Cole
was born five days before Luke’s 2nd birthday and I was concerned that we would
have two babies in bed with us. But it wasn’t a problem. Cole was born in our
home at 6:30pm. At 10:00pm all the kids came in our room to kiss me and the
baby goodnight and Luke went right with them off to bed. I don’t remember which
big sister he slept with that night but he just understood that the new baby
slept with mama and daddy and he slept with the big kids. This is funny b/c all
of my kids weaned themselves from the breast except Luke. I weaned him at 16
months b/c I was pg with Cole. Boy, do I miss those baby days.
My girls were more rebellious than my boys but my girls remind me that I was a
lot stricter on them than I am with the boys, meaning the boys haven’t had as
much to rebel against. Which is true, b/c I Iearned to loosen up and enjoy the
ride. Ya know like in the movie Parenthood when the mom says “I happen to like
the roller coaster!”

It’s been so long ago I don’t remember what it stands for but it’s where as
babies they sleep with you until they say they are ready for their own bed.
They are nursed instead of having a bottle pretty much you let them guide you
as far as when they are ready to move on so to speak,
Oh I was thinking yours was a lot younger than that for some reason. I only
have two boys and right now I’m having so much trouble with the youngest I’m
wishing he was a she as it seems like I could deal with the stuff going on
better. Oh and he’s 18.

I don’t know, what is an AP parent? But, as for your 2nd question, boys are
definitely easier. My girls are 27, 25 and 21. My boys are 19, 16 and 14.
