Co-sleeping question....

I'm confused.....

Is co-sleeping just when the baby/child is sleeping in the actual bed of the parents? Or is having the baby in a cradle/bassinet/crib in the room also considered co-sleeping?

And do only women who breastfeed co-sleep or are there formula feeders that also practice this?

  • there are different types of co sleeping, and both of those are types of it.

  • I formula feed and I co-sleep occasionally. I'm very careful about it, though, and very aware.

  • There is co sleeping where the baby is in the actual bed of the parents or mother and there is co rooming where the baby sleeps in the same room but not necessarily in the same bed as the parents or mother.

    Id venture to guess that both breastfeeding moms and formula moms practice both methods...maybe more breastfeeding moms co sleep and more formula moms co room, but I dont know for sure.

  • Cosleeping is sharing a bed. We did this with breastfeeding and formula feeding. With us, it was more about sleeping than anything else.
