I was hoping some of you could share your experiences of co-sleeping and the eventual transition to the childs own bed. My little girl is 7months old and we have gotten into the habit of when she wakes for a feeding around 4 or 5 am I bring her to bed with me to sleep for a few hours. It's also common that we will nap together. She absolutely sleeps better next to me and often holds my hand or hugs my arm. I love having her to snuggle with, and if I was determined to stay single forever then maybe I wouldn't worry about transitioning her to her own bed. But I would hope someday to find a nice man and not have a child determined to spend every night with me.
How many of you co-sleep with your little one and how hard have you found it to get them to sleep on their own?
