To begin, I have had 5 children. I co-slept with all of them and have no regrets. My fourth child Celia died at five and a half weeks and the death was ruled overlay. The autopsy report listed no anatomical cause of death.
At that point I had 13 years experience with co-sleeping. My next child was born a year later and I co-slept with him as well. He is now 5 1/2 and still occasionally sleeps in my bed. I don't care what laws they pass this is my lifestyle and parenting choice. I believe my daughter died of SIDS, RAD or possibly prolonged QT interval which runs in my family.
Say whatever you want about co-sleeping or bad parenting or whatever. I have never regretted the decision to share a bed with my kids.
EDIT: None of my children had problems transitioning to their own beds. I like sex too (lmao) or why do I have so many kids! My children are 19, 14, 9 & 5. My daughter Celia Blue would be 6 1/2 right now if she had lived. I strive to make informed parenting choices. I read EVERYTHING and then I follow my gut. I am extremely happy with how and who my children are!
EDIT EDIT: Update from me on page 14. Idiotic mobile acts like it knows me personally and dislikes me!
