I just don't understand some peoples issues with sharing a bed, they forget to enjoy their children while they are little.
I just have to put my 2 cents in, and its probably going to sound like a babble. LOL
we tried getting Mikey in his own room, he just gets so scared when he wakes up, he loves being close to us.
He always has loved that from the day he was born, I have always been for co-sleeping, its something that was in my upbringing, my grandma co-slept with her kids, my mom with me, my aunts with their kids.
It comes natural.
When Mike was gone for a year(military), it helped mikey over his anxiety from daddy being away.
Its just something that isn't a issue in our home.
And trust me, he won't sleep in our bed till he is 16, I didn't, neither did my aunts.
One of my great memories was waking up to my mom, and us having a family bed. One of the great memories was waking up next to my grandma together with my cousin when we were little and I felt so safe. It made me feel safe. And eventually I WANTED to sleep in my own bed, and my own room.
Mikey feels safe waking up next to us, because I know its not a control thing, he CAN sleep on his own, I know this, but he feels safe with us.
And I ain't taking that feeling away from him.
One day he'll want to sleep in his own bed, and right now I am enjoying this precious time.
So anybody can continue telling me how unhealthy it is, and how crazy Mike & I are, but its our life, and its what works for us, and its precious, and wonderful.
And I am blessed to have a hubby who feels the SAME way, and has the same views as me on this.
God I love that man.
