I only did for the first two weeks or so. I didn't plan on it ahead of time, but we fell asleep together at the hospital and it just felt so right :)

Then he slept in the crib by my side of the bed til 3 months, when he moved in his own room. I cried, DH said "We can keep him in with us longer..." but we didnt and I could tell DH was glad.

Nah, DF saw the sense in it. He eventually got tired of elbows and knees to the ribs while he was trying to sleep, but so was I. Now that DS sleeps in his own room/bed DF has admitted to missing cosleeping at times.

I co sleeped with mine and hubby never complained, but I missed him a lot. She's still in my bed cause she is scare of her room and hubby told me not to put her back in there. I'm hoping to get my bed and husband back one day.

Hopefully you all can compromise but be considerate of his feelings also. Seems like you are only concerned about what's easier for you. Sometimes that's all the hubby wants. Just to be heard and feel like they matter.

Me and my husband agreed when I was pregnant with our daughter that she would be sleeping in her own bed, same thing when I got pregnant with our son.  We like our alone time after they go to sleep.  I am not putting parents down who do co sleep, it was just not right for us.  They are 10 and 6 and I do not regret it at all.  They have always been great sleepers.

He probably just feels like he's taking a backseat to the baby. Is this your first? Some men have trouble with the change.

I think his feelings should be taken into consideration.

He was your husband before she was born; she is your child BECAUSE he is your husband. I'm aware my opinion isn't popular though.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Academic pushing Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosey, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it raising my child. I believe that my "place" is in the home caring for my husband and children. My husband is head of our home and I *love* my life! (just getting the controversial stuff out of the way!)             Aimee
