  • Honestly, keep doing it if you are both comfy and happy. It's not an issue that many make it out to be and who cares if she's 4 or 5 and still doing it? I don't care, you shouldn't either! :)

    If you don't want to sleep in the same bed, you can bring a bed in your room for her! :)

  • start off with the toddler mattress on the floor by your bed. Gradually move it out of your room. She will do fine. If you worry much get a video monitor and keep connected that way

  • So, my son slept with me till after he was in school. As long as she "can" sleep without you. Let her keep on. My son spent a week at camp and a month at my dads. So, I knew he could, ut, he also wanted to sleep with me so I let him.

  • you should try to stop it now while he is still young because you arent going to want him to sleep with you when he get 4 or 5 he is still going to want to. and might still want to when he is older then that. i know its hard but he will be ok. get a baby monitor and you will know if he wakes up. and a night like worked too with my son. good luck let me know how it goes! :)

  • My daughter is almost 2 and I still sleep with her also. I really don't think it is bad. My boys slept with me when they were little too and they turned out fine. I would just wait untill you feel comfortable with switching your toddler to his/her own room.
