I have seen that happen quite a bit. Half the family in Y and the other in J. Not something I would do but others do it.

Was recently in F to London, and a married couple kept swapping between a F and Y seat. He explained to the crew that they were sharing the care of their baby in Y, and the crew did not bat an eyelid. I did not mind either. Do not think anyone else did.

Have seen this many times over the years. American use a seat in row 1 on their trans Pac flights as a rotating flight crew rest seat which is much the same.

We're thinking of doing this: having the baby in Y while the other parent sleeps in J.

First world problem. I don't think it's an issue at all.

Look forward to the days when the kid is old enough to go UM in Y, and you can both fly J...

Clever thinking really, as long as they don’t disturb others too much or have to make someone move in they are seated in a 2-2-2 configuration, as others have said it it something I keep in mind when travelling long distances with the children.
