This brings up a good point and something I've wondered about co-sleeping. I didn't mind the idea of co-sleeping with my daughter, but after only a couple of days I had to stop. After I had my daughter I was so exhausted, I didn't know it at the time but I had an fibromylgia. I developed severe sleep problems, so bad I was missing days from work. I wasn't diagnosed with these conditions until years later (after going to doctor after doctor).
I'm not saying co-sleeping caused my fibro or sleep problems, just that my health issues made it where I was physically unable to sleep with my baby anymore. It was hard enough trying to sleep by myself, every time she sneezed or moved it would wake me up and I couldn't get back to sleep for hours.
How do those of you who co-sleep deal with the lack of sleep? Or are you just able to fall back asleep easily?
And something else I've always wondered: if your baby is always sleeping with you, WHEN do you have sex???
I used to think I was going to die from sleep deprivation, but I have somehow gotten into a rhythm with how dd sleeps and I actually feel pretty good most days- I actually never planned on bed sharing, it evolved that way because it was easier for everyone, and now I just love it. As far as SEX, we take advantage of our spare room after dd goes to sleep :) In regards to your fibro, I am so sorry you have been diagnosed, my sister has fibro and I have seen how she suffers, brightest blessings to you
