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.

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.

I tried this but now DS takes a water bottle at night instead of milk when he needs it (no more then 6oz on a bad night). Which sucks because I really wanted him to break the bottle at night habit so that he would eventually just give up the bottle all together AND stop peeing through his diaper at night!
