Mine will if he's sick. If you want her to sleep in her own bed then you should try it at night. If she sleeps in there for her naps it should be too hard of a transition.

Well, my ds has his own bed in his own room and sleeps there, but I usually sleep in there with him. He needs me there to fall asleep and then by the time he's out, I'm usually too tired to move or asleep myself.

I'm starting to think they never cut the cord when Anne-Marie was born. She acts like part of her wants to sleep in her room and part of her wants to be in bed with me and dh. We will be getting her a "big girl" bed right before the baby is born, and she seems excited about that. Here's hoping and praying that she wants to sleep in her room when the baby arrives!!

Mine will not sleep with me and I wish sometimes they would. When they have a bad night or are sick they want one us (usually me) to sit in the rocking chair and hold them while they sleep. It would be so much easier if they would just go to bed with us, but they just cry and scream.

We have the same problem. She has to fall asleep in our bed or at least with one of us in her bed (which is hard because it's twin with side rails on each side). We put her in her bed when asleep, but most times she ends up coming back in. I want to close her door, but I'm afraid she will freak out and wake Brian up, who is in the next room. She has been falling asleep on the couch for naps, but never wants to fall asleep on her own in her room.

Crista has been sleeping in her own bed for a while now. (since 4 months and it was a struggle to get her to do it!)

Now she will sometimes (maybe once or twice a week) wake up at like 2 or 3am and come get in bed with us and will sleep until like 9 lol.

But she knows that that is the only time she is allowed to sleep with me\us. If she really isn't feeling good or is sad, then I would let her sleep with me just to make her feel better. And if she were to start coming into my bed more than 2x a week then she wouldn't be allowed to do that anymore either just because when they make it a habit of sleepign with mommy and daddy, its REAL hard to break.

We will lay down with Ben in our bed for about an hour. It's nice quiet time, just us 3. Then, I make a big deal of putting all of his stuff in his bed, and turning on his music, then it's off to his bed.

Hello, Im a mother of 4 and one on the way. My 2yr & 4yr have a hard time sleepping their own beds.My 4yr is getting better if she wakes up her dad goes back to her bed and lays down with her until she falls asleep. 2yr falls asleep in our bed then we put her in her own bed,next to her sis bed, sometimes she stays all night and sometimes she comes in our room. But we keep trying. Having kids in your bed all the time can put a halt on the sex life a little bit. Im also 7mo pg. We are running out of room.HAHA.
Good luck
Kelly

Liam sleeps with us, and probably will until he no longer feels the need to do so. We both really enjoy co-sleeping with him. He has a toddler bed at the end of our bed and we'll start to implement at least starting off there (after he's nursed to sleep) more when he's a little older. For now, this works for us.

Heckkkkkkkkkkk no.


I am so 100% against cosleeping .... it makes the kid way too dependent. And not to mention, it's a PITA to have sex when you have a toddler in your bed. They need to be in their own room, in their own bed - from day 1. When they're sick, it's okay to let them fall asleep in your room - but not sleep there overnight. I have only let Danny sleep in our bed once - and that was only because he was scared and we were visiting my MIL and I didn't want to bother people with him whining. No one got ANY sleep that night and gah, it was horrible.


IMHO ... Your bedroom is for you and your DH. You should sleep together in the same room, if not in the same bed. I think it's important to a marriage to not sleep apart.



Bring on the flames!

The only times the boys sleep in my bed is when they are not feeling well or if they have a nightmare, but I usually take them back to bed after they fall asleep. Actually lately I have been sleeping in there bed for them to go to sleep, its easier, so then I don't have to worry about carrying them back to bed, but this isn't all the time, its only when a bad dream happens!! Luckily it doesn't happen often cause its way to hard to sleep in a twin bed !!

that's very interesting. My oldest co-slept off an on until he was 4 and has always been very very very independent. My middle son NEVER co-slept and he's 11 and his sleep is crap, he can't stay asleep, he says he never sleeps (?), and Liam is 21 months and he also plays very independently. They aren't supposed to independent for many many years. I'm not flaming, but I also WANT my childrent o depend on me, it's what I'm here for. I slept with my parents off and on most of my childhood, we're all very very close but I was never a dependent and needy child.

Gracie is almost three and cosleeps with us (most of the time) and is very independent except for bedtime. We never had any kind of separation anxiety issues with her.

Brian is almost a year and a half and never liked to cosleep and he's the clingiest kid I've ever seen.

Cosleeping often makes you and DH get creative for those frisky nights.
