Something I just don't understand....

I just need to vent for a moment...

A friend of mine has a 6 month old who has been having difficulty sleeping. She wakes often, so mommy is tired. The baby sleeps in her own room in a bassinet type thing. I was telling her that co-sleeping is the only way I get as much sleep as I do and telling her all the reasons I like it.

She said that from the beginning her and her DH didn't want her to sleep in their room. I completely respect that!

The thing that gets me is later in the same conversation she said that her dog was driving her crazy trying to get under the covers of their bed last night and I asked her "Oh, your dog sleeps with you?" She said "Yes."

I'm having a really hard time understanding why it's not okay for her infant to sleep with them, but their dog can cuddle with them all night. WTH?!

Our culture has really screwed up people's ways of thinking! That is all. Good night :)

Let's hope the babe grows up to me more emotionally adjusted that her dog sounds!

CRAZY!

I know some people don't sleep with baby in the bed because they are afraid of rolling on baby during the night. There probably wouldn't be that concern with a dog.

IDK though... Our baby sleeps with us and the dogs get the floor.

I understand that too, but she didn't even mention that as being a reason. She said that with her DD in the other room her hubby is not as disturbed when she wakes up crying.

In the meantime mommy is getting up 5 times a night getting baby nursed and back down to sleep. It doesn't make sense to me, but I'm not the one losing sleep...
