Thanks Ozzieshunni. I found that really interesting...

I never intended to co-sleep with my daughter (if you'd have asked me 5 weeks ago if I was going to co-sleep I would have said 'absolutely not, no, no way'), but she just never settled to sleep unless on me or DH, so to save our sanity we bought her into bed with us...and not looked back since. It actually completely fits in with our method of parenting.

Due to different literature and different peoples opinions, at times I have felt quite scared to be co-sleeping (fear of SIDs) and then almost embarrassed at other times because of how some people judge co-sleeping (making a rod for our own back, not 'the norm' etc etc).

Having read articles such as the one attached and following my own instinct I have made peace with the fact that we co-sleep and now no longer feel the need to hide from people that we do this...quite often when I tell other parents they also 'fess up' to doing it (either all night, or for part of the night).

I completely understand that co-sleeping is not for everyone, but for us it provides the stable environment that our daughter requires to sleep, and i've learnt that if done correctly is a safe activity to practice.

Thanks for sharing this. I'm just starting to try out co-sleeping with my LO, up till now she has been in basinet right beside me. But I'm quickly finding how close I feel to her sleeping beside me in bed.

I love it because I'm BFing and it's easy to side nurse him now so I really don't have to move at night, lol.
