Personally, I was 19 and living with my grandmother at the time. A lot of times I let my son fall asleep on my chest when he was a baby. As he got older, I tried rubbing his back. Then it got difficult and I started sleeping with him. Horrible idea! He never went to sleep on his own after that. Then when I moved in with my mother, he had his own room at 1 and 1/2. She always brought him into my room to sleep with me when he got up. It took me many hrs to get him to sleep by himself once I tried to stop. When he was 2 and 1/2 I still had to put him to sleep but in his own bed. Eventually around age 3 he was sleeping on his own. He still got out of bed a lot for no reason. He is now almost 5 and 1/2 and recently (a few months ago) stopped getting out of bed. ... Co-sleeping did not work for me and ruined my son's sleep habits! It was horrible. That and I would never do it again because I wouldnt want to ruin my realtionship with my husband... Currently excepting and not doing it ever again!!
Do you co-sleep? Why or why not?
