My oldest is almost 2. Well he has always slept in his own bed. In the last couple months though he has been having trouble sleeping, not that he was ever an all night sleeper. We know the main issue is his dad working speratic times, being gone for days to weeks. Well, he still takes a bottle and as soon as the 10 month old looses the bottle so will the oldest, it will be way harder a transition for him than the baby. Times when one of us sleep with him in his bed, or in the guest bed or in our bed he sleeps better. As in he doesn't want more milk in the middle of the night. I guess my question is, if I start allowing him to sleep with us more regularly especially when the bottle goes how big of a problem will I create? I know replacing one habbit with another isn't the answer, but I'm also trying to think what is best for him while his life is a bit chaotic with dad being here and gone. I'm a SAHM also. Suggestions?

The only problem it will create is a child who wants to sleep with his mommy, and i don't see that as a problem. My oldest co-slept with me for the longest time. I finally got them to their own beds, on a regular basis, about a year ago. There is nothing wrong with it, and if he sleeps better then it's better for everyone. Don't worry about what anyone says, if it makes everyone happier, go for it.
