When my husband and I had our first daughter we had no intention of her sleeping in our bed, but after about 3 months and her growing out of her bassinet and my husband not being home a lot of nights(because of his shift work) I started bringing her to bed with me. I LOVED it! I couldn't sleep without her. Now she is 3 and we have another daughter that is 5 months and I sleep with her too, and my 3 year old sleeps in her own bed for half the night and me the other half. My husband does not like it too much, he tolerates it for the most part but then we will have arguments about how he doesn't think it is right or "normal". I keep asking him what he considers normal and he thinks the girls should be in their own bed in their own room. I disagree. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there any advice for me. I don't want to stop sleeping with my children, I feel safer with them and I feel they are safer with me.
