  • IDK My kid[s] are always welcome to crawl in bed with me. Even when they are teens, if the wanna lay in mom's bed and watch a movie and fall asleep, we can do that!

  • Whatever works best for you. Some Like us co sleep for quite awhile. There are nights when everybody is in our bed. These days we only have 3 in the house.

  • i never did it except on occasion like when he wakes up in the middle of the night. But that is because 1 my aunt did it and my cousin slept with her until they were 13 and 6 when she got married her husband put an end to it. and my mother still sleeps with my brother and he is 8 turning 9 in may

  • We went to my mom's house this weekend. The only place to sleep was in the bunk beds. I was on the bottom 14y/o son was too lazy to climb so he got into bed with me. LOL So, I don't know what age would be too old. He doesn't "HAVE" to sleep with me, he just did it. He actually did until age 5 though...

  • It's not dangerous. My daughter sleeps with me, she's 9 years old. It's not like I've NOT WANTED her to have her own bed, but because of space, it's kind of a necessity. Otherwise, I would have given her her own room long time ago. I guess it depends on how you look at it.
