I voted 6-8, but would have picked an older # if available! My oldest DD is turning 9 and she still likes to sleep with us, and I don't mind at all. She slept with us full time until about age 4, when I got pg with dd 2. Then dd 2 kinda moved in on her space! But the oldest has a bed, and likes it, but sleeps with us pretty often.

keysmama: I think it's great that your babes are still co-sleeping!

Hey, Could you vote on this one, too? I started it a couple of days ago and had a couple more questions.

Thanks

mmm.. not to flame anyone, but I'm curious as to why would someone vote for "infant", who would think babes should NOT sleep with their parents... (here at MDC anyway)

Just like anything else having to do with Attachment Parenting, co-sleeping isn't for everyone. It's one tool in a large bag of tricks that promote bonding and a strong relationship. One tool of many.

The age keeps moving up for me! At first I thought I would never cosleep, but we did. Then I thought ds would move out of our bed when I got pregnant but he didn't. DH and I recently discussed moving him out of our bed when he is 18 months old, but that's just a month away and both of us decided we're not ready to make the transition yet. Now, I can imagine him still being in our bed a couple years down the road. I like having him with me.

My youngest will be 11 this year, and she is still in there with us alot They've had their own rooms and beds for a long time (my oldest is nearly 13) and he is still welcome to come on in, though he prefers his own bed usually. They can sleep wherever they choose. I can't imagine deciding an age for them to move out of our bed. Smiles, Kristi

trouble with co sleeping

Please help.
The CAS is on my ass about my co-sleeping with my 13 year old son. Is this illegal? Are there any studies to show that what I'm doing is harmful? I would really appreciate any input from you all. thanks

TSamara, welcome to MDC!
This is a really old thread... you might try starting a new thread to get responses to your question. I hope you get help!
