We've got a bit of a dilemma, so I figured I'd pose the question to you people who know stuff about babies.
Noah has just discovered that once he starts his job he'll be switching shifts regularly - nights for 6-8 weeks, then days for 6-8 weeks, then nights, and so forth for the foreseeable future. I get terribly lonely sleeping without him, so if it were just the two of us, I'd just switch sleep schedules when he does - sleep nights when he's on days, sleep days when he's on nights.
Alas, James is determined to complicate the matter (well, maybe not determined, but complicating nonetheless). My question is: is it reasonable to expect a baby to switch sleep schedules that often, or will that screw him up but good? I'd much rather sleep when Noah does, but if it won't work with a young baby, then I suppose Jim and I will be sleeping nights and just looking forward to the day-shift months when Noah can join us.
So, that's the situation. Any advice or commentary is extremely welcome.
