I actually have started calling them different things (but that is probably just me!) I consider it bed-sharing when Otter is actually in my bed. I consider it co-sleeping when he is in his co-sleeper. His co-sleeper is a special baby bed that makes it an extension of my bed, but he can't roll into my bed and I can't roll into it -- so he is sorta separate. But not as separate as he would be if he were in a cradle or moses basket.
I read that cosleeping is now also what some people call having the baby in the same room, and then bedsharing is having them in bed with you. Over here, in the US, I've actually never heard them called different things...well I mean cosleeping is always referring to them being in the bed with you and then you just say they sleep in your room if that's the case. So when I say cosleeping I mean actually in the bed with you.
