For those who co-sleep

Okay, this is a serious question. I'm NOT bashing here. For those of you who co-sleep. How do you get any alone time w/ your SO? Is that what afternoons are for? Or is this just another form of natural family planning? (LOL) We dont practice co-sleeping in our house, although we do enjoy the occasional "nursing nap". And I've always been curious about this....

  • We co-sleep ( NEVER have sex in the same room as our children) but we do have sex all over the house. It makes our sex life MUCH more exciting. We have a spare bedroom with a spare queen size bed that we use also.

  • I did co-sleeping with my daughter for the first 3 months. Babies sleep so much, the alone time really wasn't a problem. Hubby and I enjoyed our time with our new baby in bed with us =) it was family bonding. Once she moved to her crib things went right back to normal.

  • I always wondered that too! I could never have sex with my baby in bed or even in the same room. I think it's gross!

  • My son slept with us overnight while I was nursing. He would nap during the day in his crib bc I didnt want it to be a "new foreign" place when the time to move out of mommys room came time.. So anytime my son was tired I could lay him in his crib- "entertain" my husband & if it was bed time I could go back into his room & bring him back to bed & he wouldnt wake..

  • My 4yo and my DH co-sleep in one room & my 2 1/2 yo and I co-sleep in the other room. But when we want some alone time we just put the kids to bed and meet in the living room... Or put them both in the big bed and meet in the other bed... It just takes a little planing.

  • Anon:45, I hope you are kidding. Nothing ever "splashes" when my SO and I have "adult time"

  • I don't get it.. there are MANY places in your household that you can have sex. LOL Why automatically assume that every time you jump into bed it's time to get it on.
