My boys have been sleeping in their own cots since they were born, and in their own rooms since they were 5 to 6 months old. I like this arrangement because everyone sleeps better, I get some time to wind down after I've tucked them in bed, and can choose to read a book before I turn in.
Noah likes me to stay in the room while he's falling asleep, so I usually lie on the floor while waiting for him to fall asleep. Though it doesn't usually take more than 5 minutes, I sometimes doze off and wake up with cramps on my hips. :/
I came across this pillow mattress cover idea on Pinterest recently and thought it'd be perfect for me. A mattress would be too much trouble, takes up too much space, and is difficult to store. With this pillow mattress cover, I just need to use 4 regular sized pillows, and they can easily fit into any of my cupboards when I want to put it out of sight. :)
I bought 2 metres of the hungry caterpillar material and 1 metre of the solid lime green material. Used french seams for the whole project.

Yay! No more bad back. They boys love it too.
