I dont want to overstep my boundaries, but my friend is doinv letting her son cio. She told me that she didnt want tk do it, but she reached her breaking point. Her son is 6 months, ans was waking every 2 hrs. She told her dh that either they cosleep or let him cio, because she couldnt think straight anymore witg the lack of sleep. She was starting to resent her son. So they did. She said she use to be so against it, but reachds her breaking point and it seemed to be working.

My response was just to tell her about my cosleepibg experience and how it saved me from loosing my mind. I also reasured her that they will start to sleep in their beds when they get older, and sleep through the night. But that wasnt tge issue, het dh is just so scared to cosleep

This. Although there's not much else you can do but support her and offer advice if she asks. It's hard because its her child, her choice, but you know how damaging her choices can be.

Afraid to co-sleep?  I can understand why her DH *might* be afraid to bed-share, but there really is no reason to fear sleeping in the same room as your 6 month old!  Strange...

Most people think of cosleeping as bedsharing and dont realize they are two different things. I think she means bedsharing.
