I've been in the Lil boys life for almost 10 months and when him and his sister come stay with me and daddy he cries when we tell him he can't sleep with us he's a big boy now he needs to sleep in his bed, and then I feel bad I tell my boyfriend just let him, is this a good idea should I let him continue sleeping with us or should I tell him no too

There's nothing wrong with co-sleeping, as long as you do it properly. Also, another thing to think about, if you DON'T want this to continue long term, it's better to transition him into his own bed now, rather than when he is older. Good luck with your decision!

Well, really it is up to his dad. co sleeping is not a bad thing, it just really depends on how he (you if you are a permanent fixture in this boys life and what the bio mom wants) wants to raise his child. It will not damage the child, and supposedly studies show some kids do a lot better in life because of co sleeping. Good luck.
