I have a stupid question, please don't laugh :)

I have seen some of the mamas on here talk about co sleeping. What do you mean by that? Please don't laugh, but I truly do not know exactly what that means.

  • Most commonly, people use the term cosleeping to mean when your child sleeps in your bed with you. Technically, co sleeping means sleeping in close proximity to baby, -in a bassinet next to your bed, in your bed, in a bedside cosleeper, etc- and bedsharing means sleeping in the same bed with your child.

  • We co-sleep. My 2 year old shares our bed with us. Co-sleeping also means sharing a room with your child (but not necessarily the bed).

  • Co sleeping can either be your child sleeping in the same bed as you or the same room as you.
    Some are more specific.
    Co sleeping: same room
    Bed sharing: same bed

  • co-sleeping, as i understand it, is when ur child sleeps with u in ur bed. i did it with my first son from the night i brought him home from the hospital until he was about 4 or so. i was single tho so no spouse to object. but when i did meet someone and we moved in together it was hard to keep my son out of our bed but eventually we did it. hes 7 now and never asks anymore. that closeness was great while i lasted but anyways, thats what co cleeping is. :)
