Weird Question about Co-sleeping and Nudity - Page 3

post #41 of 46
While pg, I have been hiding my breasts under a shirt, too! It really deters my 3yo (or maybe I should say that an exposed nipple is like a magnet dragging her across the bed).

We sleep naked a lot, still. Dd rooted on dh at first, which was cute, but quickly figured out she wasn't happy with him in this respect. :-) When she was old enough for me to be when she "couldn't wait" for me to get off the toilet or something, she would sometimes go to dh and tell him, "I want to nursie!" So he would lift up his shirt and tell her to go ahead. That annoyed dd. "I want to nursie MOMMY!"

If you want to be skin to skin, right after birth, instead of the pad, shirt, bra, etc, you can always put a waterproof thing under you (e.g. chux pad, towel with maybe a wool or fleece blanket underneath it, or whatever).

Well, when the babies were first born, I had to wear a bra to hold nursing pads in place and panties to hold a pad!!

I wouldn't sleep nude now becase it would make my girls uncomfy if/when they join me during the night. I think I was OK with that until Leah was 2 or 3 years old.

i can NOT sleep with clothes on. we all co- sleep naked. when it started getting cold the babe would wake up frequently at night if i didn't put a shirt on him, but otherwise just a diap. i find it totally uncomforable to sleep with clothes on. if it ever becomes a problem for my ds, i guess i'll have to deal with it then. i'm thinking once they get to that point they are looking for privacy and don't want to co-sleep anymore. who knows, it works. i doin't think it's going to screw him up. if anything it will teach him the human body is a natural thing. our cat co-sleeps too he is also naked

I have a co-sleeping cat too, but he much prefers to sleep in his fur!

I have never been able to sleep naked-- I have to have something covering my thighs because I sweat a lot at night, even when I'm not hot, and I hate when my thighs stick together. I used to sleep in full-out pyjamas, but lately I've just been wearing boxer shorts and no shirt because Julia likes the skin contact at night.

DH started wearing shorts to bed recently, even though he's always been a naked sleeper. He's very concerned about what's appropriate in the eyes of the world at large; there was a child at the school where I used to work whose family was investigated by child services because he told his teacher that he slept with his daddy at night, and the teacher decided that it was "inappropriate" for a kindergarten child to sleep with his parents. DH is real afraid of things like that. He even made me delete all Julia's adorable bath pictures-- anything where she's naked.

Oh wow that's sad! I'm so sorry we live in a world where he feels that's necessary.

I have the greatest pictures of my mom and my older brother, hanging out naked in the bath together (actually, in most of them my mom's wearing a bra - but she's OBVIOUSLY not wearing anything else!) - they're some of the most adorable photos! And this is way pre-digital, so I know they had them developed somewhere.

It makes me so mad and sad to think that some people would 1) have a problem with a parent and a kid being naked together, and 2) would make it the parent's problem! Gah!

Ok, I have to go cool down somewhere. This is not good for my blood pressure!

We are naked sleepers. Ds#1 is in a diaper. #2 is in diaper and jammies. Dh will sleep in the closes he wears that day if he is extra tired. He would however like to be naked.

Didn't read the other posts. Hope that helps.

I figure when my boys start showing signs of modesty, I will honor that.
