Anyone have experience with co-sleeping? My daughter, Julianna, is almost 10 weeks and I am co-sleeping with her for several reasons. 1) We both enjoy it, and I like the 'attatchment style parenting' ideas, I think it's healthy for babies to be close to mom 2) I am breastfeeding and it is much more convenient as I can nurse while resting/ half asleep 3) she will not sleep alone.
Will Julianna become so used to this that it will be harder to break the longer it goes on?
Do any of you co-sleep?
Has anyone slept with baby in the beginning and eventually gotten them to sleep alone? If so, how?
If you are co-sleeping how do you have alone time with hubby? (not only do we not sleep in the same bed, we sleep in seperate rooms because he needs to be up for 6am for work and also I worry about the 3 of us in 1 bed, whereas Julianna and I share a big bed with lots of room)
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
