  1. 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...
  2. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    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.

  4. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hi there, this is my first post in this forum because we have, fortunately, always had a great time with cosleeping. And we still are, this is more of a minor point that I am having a bit of trouble with. Right now, my DS starts the night in his own bed and usually joins us in the big bed...
  5. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Don't get me wrong, we like it........most of the time. We have just the top mattress on the floor. Baby sleeps on the side. There are pillows on the floor, except for where the vent is. Well last night I heard the whole house just shutter as my 17 month old apparently went head first and...
  6. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hello All! I want my 4.5 year old to be able to (1) fall asleep by herself - right now my husband or I have to lay by her until she conks out. and (2) stay in her own bed all night. She is afraid of the dark so we put in a night light AND her big sister sleeps in the top bunk so she is not in...
  7. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    My 2-year-old and I co-sleep with a crib side-carred to a single twin-sized bed, pushed against the wall. That way he is surrounded by crib bars, headboard, and wall on three sides. We get in and out at the foot of the bed, which he is perfectly capable of climbing in and out of when he is...
  8. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    She NEEDS a nap but fights it like hell. If she doesn't nap she is a wreck by 2:30pm. If she naps at 12:30 (what we always aim for) she usually goes to bed alright. If she naps any later she is up late. Naps are hit or miss. I try to stick to the same routine daily and we have half success...
  9. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    I've been sleeping with our three kids (individually, in their beds when they are young), while my husband sleeps on his own in our big bed. This started with our oldest, who is eight. I also have a six year old, and a three year old who have their own rooms. The three year old is probably ready...

    http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2012/03/mayim_bialik_s_beyond_the_sling_doesn_t_give_all_the_facts_on_bed_sharing.html Would love to hear what people think of this. It is obviously biased and one sided (it was sent to me by a "mainstream" mom who likes to...
  11. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Still loving the family bed after 7 years. I swear, I never intended to crash with my kids for this long, and I have no intention of making a change in the near future. I know there are a few folks out there who would like to see a post just like this. A year ago I scoured all the threads in...
  12. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    I have 3 children...a 9 yr old, 4.5 year old, an almost 3 year old and I am 8 months pregnant with baby #4. I have co-slept with all of them, breastfed, night nursed and night weaned. I have used a humanity family bed, pushed beds against walls, put the mattress on the floor, put a toddler...
  13. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hello fellow mamas and papas, I am co-sleeping with my third child and wanting to get safe king mattress that is not too expensive. My husband hates firm beds, so are there any that are firm yet not rock hard?
  14. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    We are at our wit's end here with our soon-to-be- two year old. We have had severe sleep issues for more than 6 months. It started with more frequent night waking, and then for a while it got to where he was up for HOURS in the middle of the night. At first he wanted snacks, and we would give...
  15. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    My daughter is 19 months and has always nursed to sleep at night. I am now 23 weeks pregnant, and need to end this routine. She also co-sleeps and nurses back to sleep when she wakes in the night (typically 3-4 times). I am soon going to refuse the boob when she wakes in the night, and although...
  16. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    We have 2 daughters and have co-slept with both of them since birth. When my younger daughter was born, my husband stayed with our high-needs oldest and I moved into a different room with our baby. Now they are 4 years old and 2 years old, and we still sleep in separate beds with each girl...
  17. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    DD is 2 yrs 9 mos. About 6 mos ago I more or less night-weaned her -- I nurse at bedtime and then not again until 5 or 6 am. Since then, she's been waking up once or twice a night several nights a week asking to nurse. I would gently tell her 'no, wait until morning' and snuggle her to sleep...
  18. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    I have a 5 1/2 month old and we started co-sleeping from birth, but after 3 months he wanted to nurse all night and neither of us could sleep well. We quit co-sleeping and tried to transition to the crib. He flat out refused. Eventually we discovered he would sleep in his car seat (and I'm...
