The big room split is almost here. The beds have been ordered and as soon as they arrive it's game on. My biggest concern is what will happen at night. I'm talking middle of the night, Mommy's fast asleep night.
I'm a sound sleeper. I've somewhat been broken of that habit after months of crying newborn quads, but still, it takes more than a slight whimper to rouse me when I'm down for the count. I still have a monitor in the girls' room and it's been a lifesaver (or at least a carpet saver) on the nights they've woken up barfing. I am able to distinguish between a hard cough and a barfing cough. If I hear the latter, I know to run down the hall, flipping on all the lights so I can find the sickie.
So with the room split, I'm in a bit of a pickle. Can dual monitors work? I'm afraid with two monitors, their signals will interfere with one another, even if we set them on different channels. I'm considering putting the monitor in the hallway right outside their doors... but then I'm afraid I'll wake up due to mischief-making felines who won't be able to resist the new "cat toy" in the hallway. I know eventually we have to break away from the monitors, I just don't know if I'm ready to do it. I'm just not sure how to turn off the monitor and still be able to stay on top of any nighttime issues, ranging from potty breaks to illness to nightmares.
