  1. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    my sweet girl is 10 and a half months old. she wakes to nurse at night at least three or four times, and I am starting to wonder if bed sharing was a mistake, I keep hearing stories of children three and over who still cant sleep through the night! SO, I am wondering when other breast feeding...
  2. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    How do you handle it when you have a disagreement between parents on this issue? Do you still co-sleep? Does your partner put up with it, or move to another room to sleep? Has anyone ever had to negotiate this issue?
  3. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hi, We have a high needs son, who has never been a great sleeper since he was born, however, he's starting to actually be more dependent on constant touch in order to stay asleep. We've done the family bed since he was an infant, however, he's always started out in his own room and then spent...
  4. Parenting
    My MIL is Indian and there they practice what I consider a somewhat extreme form of attachment parenting. Add to that the fact that she is a grandma and it's been very difficult to deal with her unsupporting attitude towards me and my decisions. Here are some examples of things they do...
  5. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hey Mamas... Soon after I told my mom I was pregnant with my first, she told me that she'd always wanted to buy the crib for her grandchildren. Never having thought much about having a baby myself, or where it might sleep, I went along with it and dutifully picked out a crib from Sears. I set...
  6. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Do you think there's an age where kids are too old for the family bed? Is there an age where it keeps them from becoming independent? Is there an age where it becomes inappropriate? I am not personally concerned about independence. I think kids become comfortable in being independent by being...
  7. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    This must come up all the time, but I haven't found anything useful... I co-sleep with my 7 month old, & have since she was born. Its great & we both do well with it, but now she can crawl. In the evening, I often nurse her to sleep & then get up to finish up my day. I pile pillows up around...
  8. Parenting
    Couldn't figure out were to post this. Everyone please call your congressman. We are working very hard to keep our parental rights in tact and gain back that ones that we have lost. Parents should be able to make all decisions for the well being of their child...not the Government...
  9. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hello, I'm pregnant with my first and we plan to bed-share. Or I think it's still called bed-sharing when you have the crib attached to your bed...anyway, we just got the crib put together, and we bought bed-risers to put under the crib, so now the crib and the bed are the same height. I was so...

    Anyone want to discuss this? Someone brought it up on another thread and I thought it would be better to start our own thread to discuss the data on safe bedsharing.
  11. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    I have a 8 month old who cosleeps with us. She isnt every good at napping, which got me thinking. Where do most people have there cosleeping babe nap? We put her in the crib in her room and she will nap for 20-30 min at a time and that is a big improvement! If she naps in the family bed she...

  13. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    My now 7 month old stopped sleeping throught the night at about 4 and 3/4 months old. It has gotten to the point where she is up every hour some nights, usually wanting to nurse, sometimes just needing a snuggle. My exaustion is started to have negative effects on my daily life. Is this...
  14. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    This article is all over my google news feed: http://www.rttnews.com/2122298/sids-risk-may-be-higher-for-children-who-share-beds-with-parents.aspx?type=kh I'd like to call shenanigans on it, but I can't for the life of me find the actual paper to read what the study actually was. Has anyone...
  15. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    I don't think I ever travelled when I had a tiny baby, but with a toddler or young child, I'd put pillows behind them in the bed so they hopefully wouldn't fall out, but it worried me all night. And the pillows would pose a suffocation risk with a tiny baby. What do you do as far as co-sleeping...
  16. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    So, my husband mentioned to me last night that lately it's been hard for him at work sometimes, because he has a couple of coworkers whose babies (younger than our 10-month-old) already "sleep through the night." So if he says something about how we had a rough night with our daughter, they'll...

  18. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hi, all-- I'm writing this out of concern for some friends. My husband and I are friends with three couples who have had babies within the last five months. All the wives wanted to, and thusly do, have their babies sleep with them. As time went by, my husband and I heard from the husbands...
