I'm new to this site and also a new parent (I have a 3 month old son). My husband and I cosleep, cloth diaper, babywear etc etc but herein lies the problem! I foresee us continuing to do these things until our son is ready to stop, and my husband is already hinting that someday soon our son will need to sleep in a crib, etc etc. We haven't talked about it much because he hasn't pushed the issue, but I wonder if any of you dads out there (or moms!) have run into the same situation. I know that ultimately it's our decision to make, but advice or even hearing from others that have gone through the same process can be very helpful.

Part of the problem is that he refuses to read any sort of childcare books or articles...AP or otherwise. He doesn't think that a third party can tell him how to raise his child. I am sort of the same way but I've read a few books and such which have really solidified my reasons for wanting to continue with the AP style of parenting. Are there any dads out there who were the same way as my husband? Any advice for me there?

Sorry for the somewhat long rant. I will end this by saying that my husband and I have a wonderful relationship and I have no complaints there. He is great with our son and has been nothing but wonderful and supportive thus far. I guess this is just paranoid me wondering when the other shoe will drop.

Thanks all for your advice!
