I have always tried REALLY hard not to let diabetes take over our lives. I have worked REALLY hard at Mann sleep in his own room. I am a freak about sleeping babies. It started when my middle son was a baby. A friend of ours, unfortunately, lost their son to SIDS. He and my middle son were the same age, 3 months. This is when I started bringing him in with us. He was in and out until, gulp, he turned ten. We did co-sleeping with Mann until he was one. When Mann turned one I put him in his own room, no troubles. Then when he was four we moved, smaller house and no extra bedrooms, until addition was built (took 4 years). So he was, again, with us. When D came into our lives he was already with us, no big deal. This past summer he expressed the desire to get into him own room, we now have the extra rooms. So we started the process. A few bumps in the night but we were just getting to where it wasn't a question as to where he would sleep, his room. Then the terrible news came about one our children, Eilish. I can't let go again, he is back with us. He doesn't know why, I would never tell him. The thought of him sleeping in his own room, which is upstairs and we are down, makes me physically ill. I know he needs this separation but I just can't... BTW - We do night checks, 12am and 3 am, regardless of where he sleeps.
