Do you think you will co-sleep with your LO? If not, where will baby sleep?

Well I know this does not apply to me, but I wanted to say that I do co-sleep and I think it's wonderful, it's great to have him there right next to you.

I start out not co-sleeping but we end up that way. The boys still spend more time in our bed than theirs.

I have always co-slept with my kids. We recently side-carred a crib to our bed...and can I say.... AMAZING! I should have done this two kids ago

We co-slept with both of ours. Scott not as much though b/c he like his own space. But co-sleeping is wonderful! It is so nice to have your baby next to you where you can feel him breathing.

One piece of advice though...learn how to BF laying on your side!!! I did not master this until Kaylie was almost weaned but I did it with Scott and it makes night time feedings flow much easier

I haven't master that yet, but know he does not get up in the middle of the might. I tried it a couple of times, but it did not work for us, I don't know if it's the fact that I wear a nipple shield or the fact that he just does not like to be feed that way

I don't cosleep, mostly because if the baby is in bed with me, I don't sleep. Patrick only wakes up once a night now, and since we've got him latching perfectly, I nurse him in bed (I have to ditto the laying on the side nursing thing). He sleeps in a bassinet right next to my bed, so I just lift him up, nurse him and put him back. It was the same with Erin.

We tried the bassinet next to the bed with Cori, but she couldn't see me so she hated it and usually ended up in bed with me. This time we got an Arm's Reach co-sleeper so the baby can see me and I'll have more space in bed.

We never co-slept while the boys were young infants, but as they got older they were always with us. Kind of funny...at one time we had two parents, three kids, and two cats in one bed during a storm. heck, who needs more than one bedroom?!?!?!?! Everyone's in their own bed now...well, yeah, they're 13, 10 and 8. But, I'm sure the new little one will find his/her way into our bed before long

We co-slept with Haley and are doing the same with Tyler. Dh wants me to put him in his crib, but I'm not ready yet. I love having him beside me.

Cecil sleeps in a bassinette right beside the bed until Travis gets up in the AM, then Cecil joins me in bed. I love both ways!

I have to say that we did not plan on co-sleeping at all, it just ended up being a better situation for the 3 of us and now, i wouldn't have any other way.
