I never heard of co-sleeping until after I was doing it. I had ds crib set up and he spent some time in the bassinet and some in the crib in the early months, but is much easier to just keep him in bed with us. Like a pp, I also had a c-section and could not be running back and forth to a seperate room to feed him in the early weeks. So I would nurse him in our bed, he would fall asleep, I would put him on the bed next to me, and that is how it started. I learned how to nurse lying down pretty early on and would feed him like that most of the time, in our bed. He is still with me, at 22 months, but dh moved to the couch after about 2 months - his choice.
