my DD sleeps with me in the guest room and she is 2. my first DD slept in the bed with dh and i until she was 2. She was a 'peaceful' night nurser though and would just wake up nurse and go back to sleep. this second one though wakes up and SCREAMS to nurse, many times a night. DH cannot sleep with the constant screaming so i had to move with her. I find I don't enjoy cosleeping with her as much as i did with my first because of the screaming to nurse.
anyone else have a night screamer??

DH isn't so hot about it b/c he can't sleep with the both of us and DD and I sleep in a spare room.
I had one friend even say something about how Child Services should be called if one slept with their child after they were an infant!!!!
I am sooooo happy I found this thread!
Child services? WOW. Dd is 5 1/2 and has slept in her bed a couple of times. There was a time when many families all slept in the same room. Sometimes of necessity and in for some 'just a way of life'. I believe the reason this stopped was because it was prestigious for your child to have their own room. It meant you had enough $$$ to have a home with enough rooms to let your kid(s) have their own room. Our dd is very independant and confident. Anyone who says co-sleeping is wrong, might say they'll never gain their independance. So NOT TRUE!! Yesterday one of dd's friends said that she and my daughter like all the same things. She then said she doesn't sleep in her room either. I wonder how many 'closet co-sleepers' are out there LOL When they're babies you never have to run to the other room ( or get a monitor)to make sure they are ok. YAY for co-sleeping!
