We are living with my parents for a while and my oldest daughter always sleeps with my parents. Recently they have started drinking wine, maby one or two glasses two or three times a week. Certainly not enough to be drunk or even buzzed. But should I worry about her sleeping with them if they have had a glass. She is 4.5 so I would think if there were a problem she would wake up and be able to move over or get up. Me and my brother slept with my parents for at least five years each so they are used to sleeping with kids. But my mom said how great she sleeps after having a glass and I worry maby she wont wake up if something happens. Even though she had two last night and after only four hours of sleep she woke up when my dd was whimpering, and when she does that it is so soft you can hardly hear it. Do you think i should worry?

Do you co-sleep after having a couple of glasses of wine? I think at 4.5 she would be able to wake up and move or wake them up if need be.<br><br>
When my DD was 4.5 it was like sleeping with a mule, so waking UP wasn't the issue. Going to sleep was. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I don't think you have anything to worry about. One or two glasses of wine before bed should not make them so inebriated that won't wake up for your daughter.

I sleep with my 16 month old and we are still nursing so I may have four sips of my moms drink. But I never thought about it before until she had a glass last night. After having both of them wake up with dd last night after only a few hours of sleep i feel good about it, not so worried. Its just good to hear other's opinions either way.
