The end of co-sleeping

28th July 2015   

I’m not sure exactly when we finished co-sleeping with E. I remember when it was with D – it took a long time, and when E was born he went to bed with his dad while I stayed with E. I think it took until he was almost 2 for the transition to be mostly complete and he was well over 2 before he would comfortably sleep in his own room through the night.

Still clearing out

21st July 2015   

Gone so far:

  1. Travel cot
  2. Pram
  3. Bottles, breast pump
  4. Swing
  5. Bath support
  6. One box of clothes

Total cost new: over £500 (yep, I was one of those clueless first timers who bought everything brand new. Some items were gifts though)

Total value sold: £65 (some items given to charity shops or donated via Freecycle)

To go, once I find missing parts…

  1. Door bouncer
  2. Activity mat
  3. Side-sleeper/crib
  4. Reuseable nappies
  5. 4 more boxes of clothes

Total cost new: around £350
Expected sale value: £50 or so (mat will be donated)

To go in the next few months once E’s been moved on:

  1. Cotbed
  2. High chair
  3. Carrier

Total cost new: Around £250
Expected sale value: £75

Hopefully these items will all go to good homes – I don’t care about money, particularly. I’m mostly annoyed that with most of the stuff I’ve already sold, D and E hardly used them. Lesson learned – if I was doing this again I’d be buying second hand!
