  • try it out see if you and him like it and if not OH what you think is best for you and your son. Sometimes you gotta block out the family, I know all to well of that one. I co-sleep as well and am considering a toddler bed.

  • Do what feel like is best.....however the longer you co sleep, the harder it will be to get him into his own bed when you want your space back. You must have conflicting feelings deep down if you are asking, which brings me to the question you should ask yourself, am I comforting him or is he comforting me? If the answer you derive to is he is in your bed because he is a comfort to you since you are all by yourself, then sadly it is time to let your baby try and be a big boy.
    Either way do what your heart tells you to do. You are not hurting him by him sleeping with you, he'll been fine either way you choose to do it. :)
