My husband started a new job and will not qualify for paternity leave when the baby arrives. I will be home for three months so the bulk of the care will fall on me. I know research says that it is best for the baby to stay in our room in the beginning for a number of reasons. I am wondering though how my husband will get any sleep if I am turning on the light to change diapers, feeding, etc in the same room. We will also have a nursery in a separate room. Is it best for us to just shuffle back and forth between rooms? Should we just get over it and hump it out?
I’d love to hear how others have handled this in the past or plan to handle it once their baby arrives.
