Quoting Lilith.23:I do wake up, but i also do sleep better.
I'm lazy, I'd hate always waking up and walking to my sons room a billion times at night so i co sleep and i love it.
I dont nurse so I cant answer that but I generally dont like co sleeping. I was raised that the bedroom was a private place and generally I dont like my children in my room. My hubby is oposite and his family is always just barging in when they are here which I hate. I keep my door closed most of the time because of it. I just think its private lol. All my kids have learned to sleep in their own beds.
Ok have you ever woken for just a second then gone right back to sleep? With co-sleeping its like your SO arm getting in your way at night you kind of wake up enough just to move it out of the way but you don't fuly wake up. when I co sleep and my baby kind of fussy I wake just enough to lift my bra up and stick the boob in the mouth to fall back asleep, then another fuss and I hug and roll over so the other boob is accessable, and pat the butt to see if he needs a change and if not go back to sleep and I am then usually slightly aware when he would on his own go for his second nursing at night. so in all I never had to become fully awake, where as if they are in another bed you have to get up which requires me to wake up more
