I agree with Serenity. I would imagine that in other cultures you don't have the phenomenon of a woman at home all by herself with children, so much to do and no help.
But I think it's a good question. I sometimes cringe when I come to this forum and see all the negative posts. Babies who are still sleeping terribly as toddlers, mothers who have just had it, hating the family bed, etc. It really upsets me (though I do feel for the poor mamas!) b/c it seems it just gives cosleeping such a bad rap (I know, I know, this is the forum for help...).
Anyways, so my thought is that maybe the women who post here are a minority of those who cosleep. I mean, we have it really easy with cosleeping, no problems, and I know many other mamas here are the same. So maybe there is an illusion that so many cosleeping families have problems. Maybe in other cultures, it's also a minority of families that have such problems, but add to that the extra support from extended family and perhaps it's not so bad.
thinking out loud here....
