Co sleeping allows the mother to nurse comfortably. The child is snug and cozy. My kids even have had blankets on them and I have never had any choking issue. You are aware of them.. Rooting is a reflex that a baby just born has. I think in cases where suffocation has occurred and the parents were in the same bed.. When you co sleep, a mother will also nurse for a longer period of time.
I do not know about anyone else.. Do our kids look like cows? Nursing a child for a longer period definitely has benefits in terms of health and even in terms of intelligence. My older two kids are both considered gifted. My younger two have not yet been tested. Who does not want the best for their child? Co sleeping is the best..

Hello Beena, I know it has been a while since your posting, but I am hopeful you will be notified. I am a newish mum, my baby is 9 months old, and I have been co-sleeping from day dot. It has been a fabulous experience, and I enjoy a great bond with her. I do not know other people who co-sleep, although they are likely to be around. It is something I am completely in the dark about. Did it need negotiation, did it occur quite naturally?
Thank you. I just have to say, I was open to bed-sharing, co-sleeping with our daughter.
Our stories shine a light on challenges and victories
She was premature so she needed her momma a lot! I had a bassinet for her to sleep in that was only 3 inches from my side, but more often than not she was in my bed with me happily nursing away! I wanted to get her into her OWN bed some where around her first birthday or so, but I was a wimp and she would start in her own same bassinet, well, playpen, and then come to bed with me in the middle of the night for nursing.
I had her taking her naps in her playpen at 15 months old, before then she HAD to be with momma to sleep.
I know, wimp! My husband had to travel for work and would be gone a long time, so he sent me to my mom and dad. We shared a bed then. Finally at 2 years old, she had her own crib for naps! BUT, once we got home, she decided she liked her own bed. We tried to keep her with us, but she just would flip and flop and whine and whimper and toss and turn and roll around. It does just happen. They grow to a point that they no longer want to sleep with you and then that is it, no matter how you wish they would, just for old times sake. Now the ONLY time we get to sleep with her is if she is sick or comes to bed to nurse in the middle of the night and then stays, for a while.
In the span of a lifetime, in light of eternity, those years she slept with us, was nothing more than a breath!

Just a moment. Cherish and treasure those days and nights and moments. One day they will be gone and you will wish they had stayed just a little longer.

I pray for another baby to nurse for forever and to sleep next to me for as long as I can get them to! It truly is only for a breath of a moment. Great response, sophiasmomma. I love it and recognize one day he will want his privacy. I bedshare and nurse my 1 year old. Well, we bedshare like Sophiasmomma does — during the nursing sessions. She wants so much room to move that even when she sleeps in my bed, she rolls off into her own our mattresses are on the floor, right next to each other or onto the floor!
I was 15, she was around 6 months old. And starting with my 1 year old my daughter , I will allow them to sleep with me for as long as they want…in my bed or in their own bed in my room. It truly does facilitate a bond like no other.

But if they prefer their own room, they can have that. He slept in the same bed with me for about 7 years. He has always had sleep issues and just sleeps better in the same room with me. At this point we are all wanting him to sleep on his own himself included! I could not agree more with this article. My husband and I had our daughter in bed with us until she was 2 and a bit and made an easy transition to her own bed when she was ready. I slept with my son in my bed and it made his babyhood ridiculously easy with me. When he woke in the night he had no need to cry.
I would put my breast into his mouth and fall back asleep. This would happen several times during the night, but it disturbed me so little I barely remembered in the morning. I definitely co-sleeping is the way to go! I come from Costa Rica. I am a supported of co-sleeping. I did believe those stupid things at first, but when my baby was born and I realized it felt natural and around her 4months of life i permanently moved her to my bed.
Now she is 2 and sleeps with us and we have discussed it many times: it feels right for her and for us, it is comfortable and has not changed our relationship and hubby and wife. Nature cannot be wrong, our guts cannot be wrong: hundreds of years of evolution cannot be wrong: it feels good because is natural to do so. So true, just go with your feelings!
I have 4 year old and 3 months old, they both co- sleep with me. When they will not need mommy then they will be ready to have their own bed and their own room! Why should I force my daughter to get out from me?? Why should I make her cry when she would wake up night time because she scared of the dark and nobody is next to her?
Beena you are so right on everything you said!!! I mean: what better than something made specifically for humans? Do we feed our cows with pig milk? Is just plain weird…. I totally laughed out loud Adriana reading your post. I so agree.

I still breastfeed my son and he is a little over 3. I get punished for it too but I stand my ground. You are so right. It is designed to support a calf in growing into a very large and heavy animal. Human milk will be adjusted by the body to what the infant needs. A preemie, breast fed, will receive the exact nutrients required for their gestational age. The body is an amazing machine! I had my daughter in my bed for 2 years. When she was 3 months old, in the night, she developed a temp of F.
I knew, awoke, and was there to support her through a febrile seizure. I would never have been aware were she in her own bed. Blessings on those who chose to co-sleep or bed share! A relative tried to tell me the same thing recently, that there is nothing nutritional in my milk anymore! This is preposterous!
Anyway, back to the subject, we co-sleep in the same bed. The youngest is always there, and half the time, the older ones are, too. There is not enough room for all of us, but they sneak in sometimes at night, and then we wake up to a mass of arms and legs. The kids also often snuggle together while sleeping. Of course, it is a biological need for babies to sleep with mom and nurse at will. Our American baby care culture is disgusting with how parents are encouraged to separate themselves from baby.
