Whats your opinion on co-sleeping? I always thought never!!.........Last night when my son wouldnt sleep what do I do...Pull him into the bed and put him between us. He finally fell asleep in daddys arms, I did eventually put him in his crib. I have changed my opinion on this since he was born. He sleeps better being with us and I sleep better being able to hear his breathing.

I could never do it, I couldn't sleep well with my kids right next to me. But I know others that do and it works great for them. Sometimes when they get older it can be hard to get them to stay in their own bed, but that's not unusual with kids that don't co-sleep either. Do what works for you, since sleep is such a commodity when they are little.

As far as I am concerned children grow so fast and it will not harm your child to co sleep. My now teenage daughters would crawl into bed with my husband and I if they had a bad dream or if they were scared or just needed to cuddle. They always slept in their crib as infants. With my twins who are now four they slept with me since birth I breastfed them, they slept better, I slept better, we were all happy. My husband did start to sleep in the other room. Now one twin sleeps through the night in his own bed occasionally hoping into our bed. His brother well, he is still sleeping with me. Hey it wont last forever!

We are a co-sleeping family. My oldest son has sleep issues and has wandered at night since he could walk! So I've always had him in our room for fear of him getting away from me or possibly getting out of the house. Then his baby brother was born and I swore he'd sleep in his own bed. Wrong! :D So our bed is full, but I'm content knowing my babies are safe by my side. We catch a lot of flack from family members, but I feel it's not their business. You do what works for your family!
