This week we asked: What does nighttime parenting look like?
It was only a few hours before we needed to put up this week’s Wordless Wednesday post, and we still had only a couple nighttime pictures — we put out another call and ended up with this smashing smorgasbord! Enjoy seeing all the different (and adorable!) ways naturally minded parents arrange their family’s sleep.

One morning, Mama Mo heard some squeals coming from the bedroom. When she
peeked in, this is what she saw! Her twin 9-month-old boys, Gus and Jack, had woken
each other up and were playing. To fit everyone in on one bed, the family went from a sidecarred crib to a king size mattress!

Stephanie and her wonderful son, Walker (4 months) — he had just finished nursing and they lay in bed talking for a half-hour before getting up for the day! As a single mom, Stephanie loves co-sleeping with her little man. They each start on their own side and end up sleeping nose to nose after an hour!
Sara of Bonzo, Chooch and Me has a fun tutorial called “co-sleeping perfected” on how she and Bonzo (16 months old) transitioned from using a co-sleeper to having Chooch engineer a platform addition to their family bed.
Jenn’s little ones enjoy waking up together.
