I actually do agree with you. When it becomes a matter of meeting the needs of the parents and the needs of the child are no longer a factor, especially when it moves into actually being a detriment to the child, it should absolutely be stopped. All things can be done in excess, well meaning or not. I do think that probably most co-sleeping parents will end it at a reasonable time, but there are some who don't. I won't condemn those parents who don't since I'm sure there are plenty of things that I don't exactly do "right" as a parent :lol: I don't think you're condemning those people either....I don't want you to think I'm implying that :)



Anyway, there are still times when my 13 year old son will come in and sleep with me. He's not at all dependent on it though and usually sleeps in his room. Typically when he comes in, it's on a weekend or a night when he doesn't have school the next day and he'll sneak in there after I'm asleep to watch Family Guy since he doesn't have a TV in his room :x :lol:

Nope, not condemning anyone. I went back and made the edits so my post seemed less bitchy, lol. I know some people here get incredibly defensive if someone happens to disagree with them because they view a difference in opinion as an attack for whatever reason. I didn't want anything like that to happen here.

I didn't think you were bitchy at all. I know sometimes it's really hard to understand someone's tone over the internet so I wanted to make it clear that I wasn't trying to imply that I thought you were condemning other parents :)

Basically you're a reasonable, mature adult, lol.



Unfortunately a lot of people here don't understand that a difference in opinion isn't the end of the world and certainly isn't a reason to launch into a 10 page diatribe about who's right and who's wrong, lol. Then again if BG wasn't full of these people it wouldn't be nearly as amusing.

That's one of the things I'm looking forward to. Co-sleeping and breast-feeding. <3

Isn't all co-sleeping for the benefit of the parents?! We don't live in caves anymore so it's not a necessity. Both of my children went into their own cot, in their own bedroom from the first night home. I wouldn't have been able to sleep with them in my bed all the time. There were a few nights when I was so tired that we went to sleep after feeding but they were in their own room for the majority of the time. Both my children are very secure and will sleep anywhere all night until after 7am. Even from the age of 6 months if we went on holiday they would sleep in their own room in the caravan.



I certainly wouldn't have sex in front of them or even in the same room whether they knew about it or not. It's disrespectful, I wouldn't want to be in the same bed/room as someone else having sex so why should my child endure it.
