Co-sleeping!!

I have recently read up on Attachment Parenting and realized that's the style of parenting that I have always had and came natural to me. My DS slept in the bed with me from the day I took him home from the hospital till I got married last year. DH was not having it, for good reason though: My son is 3 and has his own bed he rarely slept in. Now we have our newborn dd and my DH is adamant about getting her out of our bed...soon. I told him to bear with me and by 3 months she will be napping and sleeping in her crib. For me its just easier to have her in the bed with me for all of those late night feedings. I have no one helping me with her besides him, but he's working all day, dinner beer and Xbox at night. He never wakes up to see why she's crying at night, but I don't bother him about any of this because he's the one working all day and needs his rest. I hate how he's pressuring me about her sleeping in our bed. He doesn't realize I guess how much easier it is for me to just sit up in bed pick her up and feed her. This way the only way I have to get out of the bed at night is to change her diaper. I'm rambling now...just needed to vent.

Our 4 yr old is in our bed as I type. We let him fall asleep with us then he goes in his room. 2-3 in the morning he finds his way back because his room is " too dark" even with a nightlight. This kid is getting big so something has gotta give. ;0/

I'm glad I'm single...

OP, what about in a co-sleeper instead? That way she's int he room, and close, and but IN the bed.

(I cna't beleive I even said that... SOOOO not me)

Is he worried about not getting enough sleep, or is this a control thing?

Maybe he's worried she will be 3 and wont sleep alone. But you can just tell him she is still a baby but you will get her use to sleeping alone. It just takes time. My toddler sleeps with us but im starting to kick him out bcuz he is a very bad sleeper. He slept all night by himself so you just have to get them use to it.

 Oh my goodness, my babies were out of my bed as young as 10 months. She was sleeping through the night by then so I didnt have to get up. I slept with her in a different room until then...

My dd is 4 and I can count on one hand the times she's slept in our bed and then it was because she was sick and I wanted to keep a close eye on her.

How do you and your dh make time for sex, cuddling, and pillow talk?

My situation was kinda weird. My son slept in his own crib until age 1, but the downside was it was in my room. Then when I tried moving him into his own room he co-slept with until he was 2, theeennn....lol we moved into our house and for the longest he was afraid to sleep in his room. For the most part he's in his own bed, but being that dh is constantly out of town I'm always having a visitor.
