Cage Free Babies

A community for parents who believe strongly in cosleeping as a foundation for a mother/child relationship. Primarily this group is for those that do not use cribs, or have raised a child crib free. This group is not to debate the "rightness" or "wrongness" of the practice of cosleeping, all those in this group agree that it is the right choice for them. We are here to support each other and share our trials and hopes.
