  1. Life with a Toddler
    My 22 month old DD sleeps in bed with me and has since she was a baby. She has always gone to sleep much more easily than her older sister did as a baby, but she won't go to sleep until she is ready. The problem with this is that she sleeps radically too little at night. During the day she...
  2. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Morning, I'm new and have a question about organic, non-toxic, co-sleepers. I've searched the archives and other forums and only found threads that are pretty old. Anywho, I'd like to co-sleep with our baby and would prefer something that is organic, non-toxic. All the things I've found so far...
  3. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>DH is increasingly becoming a fan of the CIO method. Sometimes when I leave him to watch DD while I'm showering/making dinner etc. I hear her screaming and find her in the pack n play while he is on his tablet playing a game. I then pick her up and hand her back to him to continue what i was...
  4. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>For reference, DD will be 3 in December and is no longer breastfeeding.  She has pretty much always slept in our bed.  We tried briefly when she was an infant to get her to sleep in her own bed, and were unsuccessful, so we just kept her with us.  She sleeps through the night pretty much...
  5. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Hi,</p> <p> </p> <p>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...
  6. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hey Mamas...<br><br> 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...
  7. 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?<br><br> I am not personally concerned about independence. I think kids become comfortable in being independent by...
  8. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>This must come up all the time, but I haven't found anything useful...</p> <p> </p> <p>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. </p> <p> </p> <p>In the evening, I often nurse her to sleep & then get up to finish up...

    <p>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.</p>
  10. Gentle Discipline
    Is it unreasonable of me to lock my son out of the family bedroom as a consequence of frequently refusing to respect nap time for his younger sister? I lay down to nurse her, and he is always welcome to join if he's willing to be still and quiet. Sometimes- not always- he is just firmly...
  11. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    My first post here! We are expecting DD end of June, when DS will be 3. DS was a classic nurse-all-night can't sleep without a warm body next to him baby and coslept with us constantly until just past age 2. Now he starts the night in his toddler bed but comes into our room sometime in the...
  12. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    DS is 12 weeks old. We've been bed sharing since day 1. Like many, this wasn't part of the initial plan, but here we are and it's been working out well.<br><br> Of course, there are some challenges. We have a queen (no room for king or sidecar crib) and while DH and I are not large people, it's...
  13. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Does anybody have a setup where your baby/toddler starts the night in their own room, then comes in to cosleep with you sometime during the night?  How is that working?</p> <p> </p> <p>My 13-month-old starts the night in a pack-n-play in our room, then when I come to bed I move her to the...
  14. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Hi all, we currently cosleep with our almost 3 year old. He is a complete snuggler and we;re wondering what to do since our second child is due in October. I doubt it is safe for our little guy to sleep with a baby in the bed (he is a bit of a mover) so we're wondering what our options are...
  15. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>My 9.5 month old daughter began moving around on the bed in her sleep so my husband & I decided to take the headboard/footboard/slats off and we placed the queen mattress on the floor. I placed our comforter next to the edge of the bed just in case she rolled off that night. She rolled off...
  16. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>My baby is almost 6 months. What I'm used to in night waking is they'll stir, maybe grunt, fuss a tiny bit, kick a little, and root for the breast a lot. I'll get them hooked up before they're fully awake, they nurse back to sleep, and thats the end of it. This little guy.. what am I gonna...
  17. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>my 5 month old son sleeps with my husband and I. He definitely knows who his dad is - loves him, smiles for him when he sees him etc. During the daytime, my husband can put him down for a nap without any issues. It's night time that's a problem. We do our bedtime routine (diaper change...

  19. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>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...
