Nope and never will. Not in my bed. I currently share a room with my 14 month old and I enjoy her being there but It will be a bad habbit when I move to break it.

I rent from my parents and its only 3 bdrms so my older 2 share then me and baby.If it wasnt for trhat she would have been in her own room from birth. lol

But never in my bed I am 100% dead set against babies sleeping in my bed

With DD it was never all the time, just whenever I couldn't get her to sleep any other way. We did go through a phase that lasted about 2ish months where she would NOT sleep anywhere else but on my chest, so that's what we did. With LO, we just recently moved her to her own bed. Recently as in the last 2-3 weeks. I had no intentions of co-sleeping with her before she was born. But when I brought her home from the hospital I was exhausted, laid her down beside me in our bed, we both passed out and that was that. It felt right so I went with it. If I had my way she'd still be sleeping with me but SO was pretty adamant about wanting her out of our bed and as much as I hate to admit it, he was right that it would be easier now than when she gets older. I've still been sleeping with her during naps though, when DD will let me nap that is. Haha.

I cosleep. I did with all my kids. And I just let them choose where they want to be once they were able to get in and out of bed safely on their own. They sleep with me, or in their own beds, I'm cool with whatever. My youngest (2) still sleeps with me 5/7 nights a week. The other two nights he sleeps with his big brother- they're best friends. I hope that sticks... lol

We broke DD of going to bed with milk by watering it down, like 1/4 water and 3/4 milk. Then half and half, and kept doing that until it was just water. Once she was just drinking water we started giving her a sippy cup of water and watching to make sure she drank it all before she laid down. She still has a glass of water before bed, but she doesn't take it to bed with her anymore.

I didn't even think to start by watering it down instead of going straight to water :oops:

Yeah, we tried going straight to water first and DD wouldn't touch it. So that was my way of "tricking" her. Lol.

Yup. As a newb for about a week in her swing right next to my bed, then right into my bed and she's been there ever since. At 3 she got her own bed and she's ok sleeping alone, but we both usually prefer her with me.



She's going to sleep on one side of the bed, me in the middle, and baby sis in a cosleeper on my other side.

The first few weeks he was in his rock in play next to the bed and sometimes on my chest if we'd fall asleep... now he just sleeps in bed with us lol He sleeps so much better and only wakes up once around 5 to nurse.

Our government advises (safe) cosleeping for 6 months for safety reasons as it reduces SIDS. My plan before i had kids was to cosleep for that time and i didn't think beyond that. DS was high needs so i quickly went from cosleeping (ie room sharing) to bedsharing. Bedsharing has always felt like the right thing for me and DS and i wouldn't do it any other way. There are a lot of things backing cosleeping (research, what we're designed to do, info about all other cultures that do it as the norm etc) and i love the idea of the family bed and sharing sleep. Most adults like to share sleep so it makes absolute sense for little people to want to aswel. DS has his own bed to use whenever he wants.

I did with my youngest until she was 3. I then had to get her in her own bed, in her own room which although was hard, was easier then I imagined it to be. Co sleeping is lovely and it was just as hard for me as it was her to change it. It was time though.
