My dd is 25 months and to date I've not spent a night away from her. We nursed until 20 months, but she night weened on her own at 15 months. We cosleep, although we've started to transition her to her own bed which is literally right next to ours, even the same level so it's more like an extension of our bed and she has access to our bed anytime she wants. I was in graduate school for the last two years, but graduated in May and am staying at home with dd while waiting for our second to be born (three more weeks!). anyway, I don't know anyone else of my peers who have young children who have never spent a night away from their children. Just wanted to see if anyone else has done it - is there something strange about it? Should I be having some more kind of life that involves mommy time away from my kids? DH reminded me that mothering (and parenting in general) is very personal and I shouldn't be comparing myself to others. I agree with him. It would be nice to know others with similar philosophies, though!
