  • I started him in a crib, but, it didn't last. he was in bed with me from birth until 5. Then, he just went into his own bed. No issues.

  • i let them deside. my oldest was 10mo, middle was about 12wks, and youngest protested from day one! eventually, either u or ur child will want private space. i don't think the age matters at all, as long as the whole family is comfortable with the situation.

  • About eight months...but the co-sleeping did continue well past year one. I'd just start him in the crib and eventually take him into bed with me.

  • Close to 2, and he had NO problems sleeping in his crib. Still doesn't.
