I have never and will not bed share or put my kids bed in my room. DH was off work today so he napped with my 4 month old in our bed, now she won't go back in her crib because they spent the whole day in our bed, and when he comes home for lunch, DH and DD lay in my bed and bond while I'm not home. I am not comfortable with it because I bed shared with my mom and she said she'd never do it again if she could do it over, mostly because I refused to go in my own bed. Should I just put her in her bed and let her cry? I am not opposed to CIO, I just don't want her spoiled.Answer Question

What choices do you have? You say you won't bed share. Your husband could sleep with the baby and you could sleep in another room. CIO is does harm babies and babies have died from CIO. Babies don't like to sleep alone, it's not normal. For all of time mothers have breastfed and slept with their babies.

You don't want her spoiled. Breastfeeding and sleeping with your baby doesn't spoil them. The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for at least 2 years. Babies are supposed to be held and comforted.
