. . . yes, even if ds has an accident in the night, I am right there to change his clothes and comfort him! I have had a co-sleeping discussion with a good friend of mine recently (who does not share my AP style of parenting). So I really appreciate this thread right now! Co-sleeping allows not only convenience for the care of our precious babies, but the opportunity for the maximum amount of love! I loved nursing in the night. I love how easy night potty...
