My daughter just turned two. She has slept with me since she was two months old. I am nursing her still and decided a long time ago that we both slept better (and longer) when we sleep together. I feel so close to her when we are snuggling! We…Continue

My son sleeps with his father and I most of the time. I didn't really plan on it. When he was first born I was breast feeding him and I decided to lay him in the bed with me to make it easier. This way I didn't have to get up every hour and what…Continue

How do you get comfortable when your baby is hogging the bed? Our co-sleeping mama blogger plays the "Quick Hands" game. Check it out here.

I need help. I love to sleep with my little girl. She is 9 months old. I am the one who takes care of her because my husband works (and i do it better) lol. She goes to bed in her crib at night, but when she wakes up at 2am, i nurse her n sleep. I have three older boys too so im exhausted. Naps arenot very long. My hubby is starting to complain and telling me that im turning her into a needy person and she is already too attached to me. she only wants me. i dont want to make my baby insecure or needy. i love her and want to do right by her. so do i wean her from so sleeping or lay her in her crib n let her cry? i know i will miss it too and im not sure it is whats best for her or me . does anyone have any suggestions?

My baby sleeps with me half the night if she wakes in the middle of the night I bring her in the bed with us. lately she's been sleeping through the night(thank God). I like her to sleep with me but I wake up more because she wakes up more when she's with me to eat because I'm still breastfeeding. I just like waking up to her but I get super excited when she sleeps through the night in her crib. My only thing is trying to go to sleep without her I'm up for hrs after she's in her crib because I'm thinkin she's going to wake up or just because she's not with me I never sleep be4 2am sadly.

Hi Mamas, yet another new study has been released on co-sleeping. This one concludes that some infants might get less oxygen and more recycled carbon dioxide when co-sleeping, which could be dangerous. Click here to check it out here on the Mom365 site.

I love having my baby girl sleep with me and she loves it too :) it seems like she sleeps more soundly and peacful than in her bassinet. I just dont get a restful nights sleep cause im constantly waking up to see if I rolled on her or if she's still breathing. Are there any suggestions to help me ease my worries?

I been co-sleeping with all my kids, my son is 11yrs, daughter is 7yrs and now I have a 6week old, now it's he's turn to co-sleep with me and the huby, for some reason none of my kids like to sleep n there curb until they was about 1yrs old they sleep on there own bed. One more thing I don't know if it just me or my back round being Haitian-American we always put are kids in there tummy and thank baby Jesus that nothing have happen and they love being n there tummy when every I put them in there back they cry.. All three of them.

my son just turned two and he still sleeps with me. some people say if i don't get him out of my bed soon it will be harder later. but i've also read that cosleeping makes children more independent later in life, wich i've actually seen myself. I don't want him to sleep with us too long though but i'm not sure how or when i should transition him to his own bed. he moves around a lot and will occassionally wake up at night if he doesn't feel someone next to him. i started cosleeping so i wouldn't have to wake up so much at night to go put him back to sleep, in my bed he just rolls over and falls back asleep and sleeps more at night. if anyone has advice i'd appreciate it.

Ladies, toughen up! It's time to tell the moms and mother-in-laws that "I'm sorry you don't like it, but this is my decision and you need to respect it!" If you don't stand up for yourself and your decisions now it will only become harder for you and easier for them to pick on you. Every family makes choices that work best for them and I'm certain that you made those decisions because of your motherly instincts and because you've done research to make the best possible choices for your baby.

Tell the nay-sayers "this is my child, I appreaciate your concern, but you have it under control."

I will post a few links for you as well:

I coslept with both of my boys, now 9 and 7 and now im cosleeping with my precious 8 week old daughter. I find that it mot only comforts baby...but mommy as well. For those of u who are new moms, please dont let othrrs get u down or feelin guilty about any choice u make for ur baby and urself. If it feels right to u and its working for u, thats all that matters! and just to let u know, both of my boys sleep in tjeir own beds with no problems every night and theyre very well rounded, independent and loving children. Surprise surprise...cosleeping DIDNT scar them for life!!!
