Oh, I hope you don't mind me popping in to your thread with the same questions, mama! Ethan is 7 months and is what I would consider very "hardy". However, I'm still nervous about our down comforter and co-sleeping. He's always cried when he gets blankets too far up and he's very strong. So, everyone thinks this is OK? (The down comforter, I mean)
Well, we just did it. I knew that I was going to co-sleep with this one as I did with my first, but with my first, it was just me. (I was a teen mom) So, I knew it might be different with my husband. It had a few more challenges, but I'm glad we're doing it. I just used some basic common sense. I have heard that (like pp's mentioned) the Doctor Sears books really help. I know that his Birth Book and Vaccine Book were awesome, so I assume his sleeping books are, too!

I just didn't like my daughter hanging out with her. Also, my daughter would always act negative and low-energy after hanging out with her,...

I'm still trying to figure out what her challenges are and how to be the best mom I can be and still have her love me. hehe! Anyway, just a note of supprt. Teens are flippin hard!
OH. MY. GOD! I am so glad to have found this thread! I live in Northwest Indiana, close to Chicago. I know the Morton Arb. BUT.
