I didn't bf, but we co-slept full time until 3 and then we stopped just after she turned 4.

when my child is ready. Definitely nowhere near yet, and he is almost 2.5. I certainly wouldn't imagine him to stop either before 3, even my friends kids with easier going personalities didn't stop at that earlier age either.



NB they recommend you bf till at least 2 years, and naturally kids wean (if not pushed, accidently or otherwise) sometime after 2.5 years. Studies show the longer the better. For cosleeping the research shows it is also positive the longer you go, and in most cultures age 5 is normal for a child to move into his own space. There are books and research and online info out there on this stuff that explain natural human behaviour (as opposed to our recent cultural crap) and the benefits of both.



www.naturalchildproject.com is good to have a read :)

I agree with whenever either of you are ready! For us we usually stop co-sleeping at 7 mos but breast feed through a year. My little nursling is 13 mos and still going strong on nursing. About three times a day. I plan to go at least a few more months.
