For all of you parents that co-sleep I have a question. We also co-sleep and all I hear is you better break that before she gets any older(she is almost 5 months). This is the way we choose to sleep and I'm sick of people critizicing me. Please let me know how you handle it.

My baby still sleeps with us :) And he's 28 months. But this is OUR choice....he was ready to sleep in his own bed when he turned two..and when I mean ready, he went to his own bed to sleep without any prodding on our part! Sometimes we'd "invite" him over to our bed and he'd willingly crawl in with us. Personally, I think it's YOU who have to make the decision, no matter what other people say. I don't care if people criticize me.....it's MY life and I'm going to do what I want with it, including raising my children the way I want them to be raised.

Co sleeping can be good and it can be bad. Not too many cases actually work out pefectly with the child going from the parents bed to their own bed when they reach that age. Co sleeping just screams way too attached to me.
