all the time?
I'm giving away an amazing free hand sanitizer and a free bottle of organic raw honey on my blog.
All but the baby. For some reason he doesn't sleep well in it so he sleeps in bed with me.
son yes daughter no.
Yep, yep and yep

Quoting lovinangels:all the time? No, but most of the timeall night? Yesevery night? Most nights (usually always, unless they're sick)
all the time? No, but most of the time
all night? Yes
every night? Most nights (usually always, unless they're sick)
Well my 5 kids are now 16-24 so yes I'd hope so tee hee
BUT yes even when they were tiny little they always slept in their own beds. I had other various issues I had to deal with them of course but this wasnt one of them
Yes, yes and yes.
OK so I have to ask for you mom's whose children sleep with you how do you get enough sleep????? My youngest had a bad dream last night and wanted to sleep with me and since hubby was at work I said yes. I hardly slept from 2 a.m. until my alarm went off at 6 a.m.
They're 19 and 22, and they sometimes sleep in each other's beds (only the youngest is still at home) and sometimes in mine (it's pretty rare these days, but it still happens), sometimes on the couch, sometimes downstairs (we have spare sleeping spaces all over the place...)
Sometimes they have sleepovers with friends...
So no: not in their own beds, alone, all night or every night. Not by a long shot.
It helps to know that sleep behaviours are learned. You find it easy to sleep in situations you're used to, and not in situations you're not used to. That includes waking and falling back to sleep easily for a variety of reasons through the night.
It's likely that you were worried (about the child, about more dreams, about the kid falling out of bed, or you rolling over too far) and that interfered with sleeping. You probably just spent more of the night alert than you're used to.
People wake to an alert state every 40-45 minutes, and when you're not used to being aware of that (and don't usually open your eyes and look at the clock) it can feel like you're not sleeping at all when you do (become aware of it, and look at the clock)... but research is now much clearer than it was when it was about what was reported to researchers and they can now record it: you're probably sleeping a lot more than you think.
Sleep is a funny thing: people don't remember doing it.
