OMG... I'm a co-sleeper!!

I know all the negative press on co-sleeping, but I have to admit that I do it. Not exclusively, but when my kids wake in the night to eat, I do put them in bed with me and nurse them in bed. I'm just tired and want to sleep....and I've never been afraid of crushing them cuz no matter how tired I get, I always know they're there. My sister always told me not to do it and later I found out SHE does the same thing!!! Anyone else have this dirty little secret?

My son has been sleeping with me since he was born (he's my 3rd but it's my 1st time co-sleeping). It's the only way either of us gets any sleep. The crib is full of clothes and diapers lol

I do even though her crib is 2 ft away from my bed. Lol I'm just you lazy to wake up to put her back to bed. She's 1, still nurses a ton during the night and she has no intentions of stopping so either do I, but the co sleeping will have to stop soon though. I'm pregnant and I won't have her in bed with us and te new baby.

Ds has co slept since he came home from the hospital. We attempted the pack and play but he didn't do well and I don't want him in his own room yet.
