My dd is almost 2.5 and we still cosleep and love it
I did not originally plan on cosleeping and her first 2 weeks she slept in a bassinette beside our bed. Except she didn't sleep. I know newborns need to eat frequently, but she would nurse for 30+ minutes, sleep for 20 mins and wake up again. I was sometimes getting less than 2 hours of sleep at night and was having a hard time functioning. Having someone give the baby a bottle so I could sleep was starting to look really good. The public health nurse who came by to help with breastfeeding, weigh the baby, etc. said that maybe she was waking up so much partly because she wasn't used to being alone, after all, she had spend the last 9 months about as physically close to me as someone could be. She told me to let the baby sleep in our bed. She also told me to throw away the schedule I had of when the baby ate, how long she ate, when she went to the bathroom that the hospital had started me on. She was smart
After that my dd woke up at more reasonable intervals and I got a lot ore sleep.
I soon learned how lovely it was to wake up to a sweet baby beside you. When she was older she'd wake me up by giving me kisses. When I go into bed now she smooshes up against me and whispers she loves me. I'm very glad we coslept. And I'm very glad we didn't buy a crib
