Currently? No. But I did when they were babies, up until 4-6 months. I never did it full force, I mostly did what worked in the moment. They'd generally start out in their crib after nursing to sleep, and then once they woke up they'd finish the night off with me.

Not exclusively anymore as she's nearly 4, but she comes into our bed in the middle of the night regularly and occasionally if we've had a big day or she's sick I'll cuddle her to sleep in my bed then my partner will move her to her own bed later

We did for a little while but, we stopped around 5months. NO ONE was sleeping well. DH snores so much it kept DS awake. Then DS started rolling and I was always afraid he'd roll off the bed if he woke up. So, he sleeps in his crib now (he's10 months) and everyone sleeps much better at night. He naps in bed will me still though.

I co slept with Jae up until I had the baby and now it's just me and him. Jae was more than ready to sleep in her own bed at 4, but I'd bring her into my bed so I could cuddle her. With my son, I only plan on co-sleeping until he's 2 if he doesn't want out of momma's bed by then.

We put DD to bed in her crib but in the middle of the night usually around 2 or 3 she wakes and finishes the night with us. During the day she usually takes atleast one nap in the bed with us but will take her other 1 or 2 in her crib. Shes 14months and this is what works best for us and we get more sleep than before when we tried to have her exclusively sleep in her crib.

Coslept with dd1 for 12.5 mos. then she came back in our bed at 15 mos when we moved across the country and it stressed her out. She slept on a recliner next to our bed from about 2-3. Then at 4 we put her in her own room when we got out new house. She would start there and end up with us. Now at 5 she ends up in our bed only when she pees the bed usually. Or the occasional weekend when she doesn't have school the next day if we all feel like it.



Dd2 is still cosleeping and will until its not mutually enjoyable anymore. Probably when she's done bfing I guess.

We cosleep. I didn't plan on doing it but it's the only way she'll sleep now. She's now 16 months and this has been going on since she was a little younger than a year. My bed has suffered because I can't figure out how to break her from her bottle habit and she won't sleep without a milk bottle :x

I co-slept with both my kids from birth. With DD she started growing out of it around 4.5 years. I would basically hold her all night until she turned 1 because I was scared something would happen to her.



DS is only 20 months and I plan on letting him co-sleep until he's ready to move to his own bed. When he was little I would place him between me and the wall with only one pillow (the one I was using) on the bed. DH slept on the double bed I brought Into our room with DD.

I neverdid with my daught but I do with my son. He's 2.5 months old. I never wanted to co sleep but he wasn't sleeping at night uless I held him so I caved and he's been sleeping with me while DH has been sleeping on the couch. I'm not a big fan of it but I like my sleep. I'm hoping I can get him into a crib by next month before my mom comes down to visit. I won't hear the end of it if she finds out I co sleep
