I don't think there is a age that is too old. If the parents and child are happy then it's fine, IMO.

I think whenever people start to lose sleep..I'm all for whatever works for your family. But with that being said...I slept with my parents until I was a good 10 years old (making my dad leave the bed and sleep in my room because he got so fed up) and I do NOT want that happening to us. Lol.

i'd say 5 years old.. but i dont find anything wrong with an only child still wanting to sleep with his/her parents.

Every night? If you're a single parent, it's one thing. But I think co-sleeping every night at any age isn't good. I think it's important for mum and dad to have some alone time away from the child(ren).



I have nothing against co-sleeping, either. I loved it with my son, but he's quite taken with his crib so our co-sleeping days are over.

There's no age. For us, 7 months was our cutoff. We kept waking each other up and both got horrendous sleeps. Once we seperated, everyone was a LOT happier

Depends upon the kid. My mom co-slept with my sister until she was like 5 or 6, but she was easy to sleep with, I planned to elt my son know when he wanted his own bed, but ended up kicking him out at 2 because he was horrible to try and sleep with - total bed hog.

:!: my aunt still slept with her parents as a teen occasionally. It was probably for the best cause her dad died and all the older siblings were moved out so i think it helped them both cope with it to have each other so close.

Why is it different if you're a single parent? Just curious as to why you said that.

It literally makes me sad imagining our co-sleeping days being over :(
I'm a single parent & I work 40hrs a week, so even though we're both sleeping, I feel a sense of "spending time" with him while we sleep. If that even makes any sense...



I was just curious as to what other people thought, since I know alot of parents on here co-sleep.
