My daughter slept with in my bed with me from birth till she was about 6 and I couldn't stand her constantly moving and kicking any longer lol. I have a 4 week old son and he doesnt seem to care too much for sleeping in bed with me lol, He's more comfortable in his own bed I assume because he sleeps longer when he's in there. He currently sleeps in a rock n play(he loves it) in my room right next to bed.


No, my kids sleep in their own beds. All of my kids share a room with another sibling and it works out pretty good that way.


I co-slept with both of my kids and it worked really well for us. When I started doing it really it was by accident! I would take Mini into bed with me to nurse her and we would both pass out.

Bub just wouldn't sleep anywhere else. It was a matter of sleep or absolutely no sleep with him. Luckily my (now ex) husband was super supportive of co sleeping, this made it a whole lot easier to feel content with the decision.


I have bed-shared and co-slept with all three of my children. They still sleep in my bed to this day if they choose to do so.

I love spending time at night talking with my 12 year old about his day or what the plans for the next day will be, or just goofing off and being silly.

And it's a pain to get them out of your bed if you allow them to sleep with you for long periods of times, but I believe they will go to their own beds when they're ready.


Yes I co-sleep with Juli, so does her dad. The three of of us share the bed but are extremely cautious. We didn't buy her a crib or pack'n'play so she sleeps with us. Some nights she'll sleep with my mom as well.


We started co-sleeping when Mason was little and really enjoyed it.

For the last 3 years, we've lived in a house where the master bedroom was downstairs, and the rest of the bedrooms were upstairs. While in that house, we really didn't feel comfortable having the kids upstairs since the stairs were right next to the front door - we worried about them coming down to us in the middle of the night, getting confused and going outside... or we also worried that if there were ever an intruder or a fire we wouldn't be able to get to them.
