Yeah, quoting is not working right.
Anyway, yes. This is why I don't call it co-sleeping. I was in my own room in my own crib from day 1 in infancy. I remember as a very small child being lonely and scared of the dark, etc. My mom began sleeping in my room with me when I complained, but then, I had to be old enough and verbal enough to complain. I think this went on from age 4ish to age 8-9ish.
I call it definitely not co-sleeping because I truly think my begging her to sleep with me in later childhood was a result of non-attachment and little to no co-sleeping in the early years.
For the record, she told me in adult hood that the only reason she would come sleep with me was to get me to stop waking her up. Which is the logical reasoning for cosleeping in the first place, but all the emotional connection is a reason to co-sleep. That reason is not why she came to my bed with me. Kind of like when people plug a pacifier in just to stop the crying, rather than take the time to meet other needs. She used to yell at me about squirming and fidgeting too, and didn't actually, like, cuddle me or anything.
But she did come sleep with me, which I appreciated.
