The Biggest Bed in the World September 21, 2006

This is rather timely considering my last post. My midwife mentioned at my last appointment that she had recently ordered this book – “The Biggest Bed in the World” – and today when we went for my 32 week visit, she had it in and let us take it home for Ava to borrow. πŸ™‚

It’s a super cute book about a co-sleeping family that keeps growing, and so does their need for a bigger bed. The daddy can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep with all the kids in the bed and ends up building the world’s biggest bed so the whole family can have enough room. The problem with the world’s biggest bed is it ends up also being the world’s heaviest bed and breaks right out of the house, slides down a hill and lands in the ocean! Eventually, daddy makes bunk beds for all the kids so that he and mommy can have their bed to themselves again, but guess what! He misses all the kids and still can’t sleep. So in the end, they all (even the pets) end up sharing a bed again and everyone is happy. πŸ™‚

It’s a book any co-sleeping family can relate to. Sometimes it’s hard to find a way for everyone to get comfortable, especially with a foot in your face in the middle of the night, but when it comes down to it, most of us wouldn’t trade it for anything. πŸ™‚

Will post more about my appt. and how everything is going w/ me and baby boy later. The short of it is – all is still going well.

    i’ve heard of this book, but haven’t seen it in person yet. sounds really cute!

    we do have “Breastmilk Makes My Tummy Yummy” and “I’m Made of Mama’s Milk”, both of which are awesome!

    those two, plus many more, are featured here (i think they also have co-sleeping books, these are just the BF’ing ones):

  2. The description of the book made me get all teary eyed. I’m so darn hormonal. Sounds like such a sweet book πŸ™‚
