I didn't full-time co-sleep with Jonathen(now 8 months) at first because my DH is a very heavy sleeper, and honestly, I don't trust him when he's sleeping. Usually, when Jonathen would wake up at night, I'd get him out of his bassinet, feed him, and if I stayed awake thru the feeding, I'd lay him back down in the bassinet. Of course, that was only when our 7 year old wasn't in the bed. When he was in the room, I would take Jonathen out to the living room, and feed him on the couch, and 9 out of 10 times, fall asleep with him there.
Right now, I am mostly co-sleeping with him, but he takes most naps, and starts out at night in the playyard(never bothered with a crib). This way, I can do stuff around the house, etc, before I go to bed, and not worry about not hearing him wake up and him falling off the bed. My DH is currently in S. Korea with the Army, so the worries about his heavy sleeping are gone. And the bed is a true family bed, with me, Jonathen,Benjamin (my 7yo), and our dog and cat all in the bed at night.
