My almost 7mo doesnt want to co-sleep anymore i try to nurse her in my bed and get her to fall asleep but the second shes done nursing she only wants her own bed in her own room :( As soon as i enter her room she puts her fingers in her mouth and the second she hits her bed she grabs her blanket and is ready for bed! Now im stuck cuddling with my body pillow.

Mine youngest wasn't much older when he got that way too. It's sad at first, but you'll quickly get used to it and enjoy the more relaxing sleep :-)

Dont be sad that means you have a very satisfied baby, you should be happy and proud of your self :)

Aw but you never know it may be a phase and could change, like you know when you get used to not sleeping with baby lol. But you have a satisfied happy baby and that is all that matters.

I was going to say the same thing. My son was completely happy to sleep in his bed when he was 13 months old. That lasted for about 6 months, and then he started coming into my bed in the wee early morning. He is now 3 and sometimes he comes into my bed and sometimes not.
My 16 month old is a snuggle monster and I'm going to go through a tough time when he doesn't want to bed share anymore.

My 6 week old cannot co-sleep at all. She will nurse, then fall asleep, then wake up right away and squirm and fuss and flail her arms at me until I swaddle her and put her back in her own bed. I'm hoping she will sleep in our bed when she is a little older. It would make night-time feeds so much easier. But if she doesn't... oh well... :-/

I couldn't imagine! :'( my LOs would sleep with me for forever if they could. My youngest is still in bed with me at 14 months. It could just be a phase like others said though!
