Did your kids ever sleep with you?

If yes- at what age did you transition them to their own bed? And how?!
My DD 2.5 still sleeps with us- and it's putting a damper on our sex life.

When they were 4 months old I put them in their own beds.

Our daughter slept in our bed until she was 10 months old.It was easier for us because 6 days a week hubby worked nights anyways.But,at 10 months her and I kept each other awake more than anything (she's roll over and I'd wake up,I'd bump in my sleep and she'd wake up,never ending cycle!) so we knew it was time for the transition.We started off with naps in her crib,in her room,and she just kind of accepted it.

 

Does your daughter have her own bed at all?Maybe start with naps in it.Or have her help you pick out bedding for it,and get her excited.

DD sleeps with me since we moved back in with my mom. She is almsot three and has been sleeping with me since two and a half. Before that she's always always slept in her own bed. When we move into the house with DH she will have her own bed.

Yes, everynight at home but when we spend the night at my boyfriend's she sleeps alone.

My kids never slept with us as babies, they were always in a bassinet or crib. Now my oldest who is almost 5 climbs into bed with us sometime in the middle of the night. I wish he didn't but I'm sleeping so hard I usually don't notice till I wake in the morning. I hesitate to put the youngest in a big bed because I fear he will come in too and there just isn't enough room for 4! lol

I say take her shopping for the bed with you and let her pick it out. We went the toddler bed route.due to space and the fact that the cool characters make the beds more fun for the kids.
