Just wanted to add...that I wasnt only talking about babies and tottlers...My child is 9

Re: sleep in your bed..I see nothing wrong with it

I know what you mean, In the context you put it, I dont see anything wrong with it, my first child slept with me for the longest and it was not tuff on her when she started sleeping in her own bed. ANd she is developmentally sound. I think over here in the western worl we are so blessed with three and four bedroom homes that it is only natural to use them...other countries live in one room habitats and all the children sleep together with parents, and they arent harmed by it, I think the doctors in the western civilization just base ideas on Ideals, and would call those other countries less civil than us.

Re: Re: sleep in your bed..I see nothing wrong with it

I feel parents and childeren need thier space.ITs ok to take napes together but to sleep over night together is hard. I am marreid, My husband was starting work at 4am and my to kids(4&5 years old) would wake up and I would let them come in to bed with me.But When thier Dad did not have to go to work. we had a problem because we did not let them on our bed.They would cry.We had a talk with them saying that they are not to come in to our bed again. I was sad.over all I know I was doing the best for us besause I did not want them to feel not wanted or pushing them away for some one else.
