mornings in bed

Waking up next to these two, is a beautiful way to start the day.

Fifteen months ago, It was just the hubs and I. We thought cuddling with each other was the best thing since sliced bread. Now a days, receiving sweet embraces from Izabella is the highlight of our morning.

Getting her beauty sleep. That’s how she gets those pink pouty lips, of course!

Waking up looking so happy is actually hard work. Lots of yawning and smiles involved.

Izzie wastes no time in waking dada. She takes this task very seriously.

She gets him every time with this move. It never fails to make his heart go pitter patter

Shortly after this picture, I joined the love and cuddled with my darlings. A ritual we practice every morning in our family bed.

We believe that co-sleeping and bed sharing is a personal family decision. We have safely done so, from day one and relish these moments. It is instinctual to have my baby within arms reach. It was so natural and practical for nursing or getting (even) five more minutes of shuteye. Not to mention, how efficient in responding to her cries and needs. As a newborn, she always slept on her back. I also removed loose blankets and pillows to avoid any chance of suffocation. Once she was able to roll over (from back to front), we incorporated our complete bedding set. Now as a young toddler, she enjoys it to the fullest, as you can see. Sometimes we use the crib, otherwise it makes a great space for folded laundry.

Wishing you a good morning. From our bed to yours!

*Footnote: There are many benefits to co-sleeping/ bedsharing aside from the ones I mentioned. However, do consider the risks if mommy or daddy are heavy sleepers, overweight, under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In that case, please be responsible and place baby in a safe crib.
