  • My son does and has since he was little (he's now 3) my daughter will only sleep in her bed. She won't even Fall asleep if she's being held! She's 13 months.

  • My daughter sleeps with me. I love it! lol I miss it when she doesnt sleep with me. But I am a single mom so I don't have anyone else to sleep with. I think its a good bonding thing. If I could do it over....I probably wouldnt change a thing. There are times when it's hard and just annoying lol but I love to sleep with her. She is 2 now. I have no clue how to get her out! lol

  • I let one of my twins sleep with me after her 5am feeding. It's just easier to lay her down in my bed after feeding her. She goes back to sleep and so do and, and we are both happy. :)

  • My step Grandmother accidentally rolled over and suffocated her newborn baby. I couldn't imagine the pain and heart ache this would give someone. That alone was enough to scare me into NEVER letting my Daughter sleep with my Husband and I as an infant. She is now 3 1/2 and only sleeps in bed with us if she is very sick.

  • its not that i LET my boys sleep with me. its that they malnipulate me with their good looks~
    ok yeah i let them sleep with me. usually just tyler my youngest twin. hes 1, and usually spends half the night in my bed. hes working his way up to the entire night. its so frustrating. its getting worse not better, which is a big wake up call for me to crack down on this bad habit!
