Co sleeping🤦‍♀️

Before I had my babies, I swore up and down I would never co sleep. My daughter came, she slept in her bassinet beside me, high risk with a few tubes. I got pregnant with my son, still swore against it. He was born and bam. I couldnt put him down. Now hes approaching 6 months old. He sleep in his bassinet sometimes but always ends up in our bed at night. It seems so heartbreaking, to stop. So please, no hate, just encourage. If anyone has any comforting words while I'm being a wuss about letting my baby sleep without me, please. And if anyone else feels like a wuss because they cant give their baby a bottle instead of breastfeed or put their baby in a bassinet or if you are just in need of some encouragement, share in the comments. None of us are perfect ❤🤙

I bed shared with all 5 of my kids 🤷‍♀️ especially when breastfeeding that’s the only way I survived and got decent sleep. They always changed to their crib around 1 year.

Honestly, all of my friends who breastfed till over 6months coslept except 1. I coslept for my convinience. I was afraid to pick her up from crib n sit and breastfeed and put her back, while being half asleep. . i was afraid to drop her. tried to make her sleep in crib around 8m and is just not possible without sleep training method, that i cant do. Hubby gave me ultimatum to either train her for crib or leave cosleep till toddler bed🤣he hated the empty unused crib taking space in our small bedroom. So now crib is in storage room. All childred of my friends who coslept adjusted without fuss to their own beds and room between age of 2-3. So now i decided to suck it up. I read in japan kids cosleep till they go to school at age 5 or 6. But i cant imagine cosleeping if working. In that case i think baby need safety of crib and be able fall asleep without boob for your own sake. But maybe some working mamas also cosleep. My cosleeping friends were sahm so i just dont know them

I also want to share funny thing, people always warn you about not being able to get them out of your bed in the future. Me and my sister (10year age gap) were bottle fed and slept only in crib. We both somehow around age of 4 started demanding sleeping in our parents bed and they gave in because we were throwing night tantrums. I was sleeping with them till age of 8 and my sis till 11🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣poor mom and dad. So my theory is, that if babies get cosleeping as babies they dont demand it later lol.

I'm in the process of adopting and considering cosleeping. It is such a good way to build a bond with your baby and there are safe ways to do it.

It is a great way, I couldn’t breastfeed so my way of bonding was co sleeping and my daughter didn’t die lol a lot of people are dramatic. https://motherhoodsprouting.com/8-tips-for-co-sleeping-safely-and-successfully/ this shows the best way to do it but I slept with the blanket completely off just incase!

This is so beautiful. I never thought about cosleeping while bottle feeding as a bond. Makes total sense. Beautiful🥺🥺🥺 and people are super dramatic. The whole american movement against cosleeping came due to parents who coslept after being drunk or high. Same as ,pyjamas need to be tight so they dont catch fire, because of parents who fell asleep woth cigarete

My eldest wouldn’t sleep on his own, he would start off in his bassinet then end up sleeping on me-only me, I don’t trust my partner to sleep with our babies cause his such a heavy sleeper I worry he might forget his nursing the baby and roll over. When my eldest was 6 months it was starting to affect my sleep cause he would only sleep on me and I was getting back pain so went to sleep school and since that day he has slept in his own bed. My now 3 month old is a wonderful sleeper & wakes around 5am I’ll pop him in bed with me and he will sleep a few extra hours. Swore I would never do it pre babies but when it was the only way they would sleep so I could get some sleep I didn’t think twice, I really do love the cuddles most of the time.
