My daughter is 2 1/2 and I don't think she will stop sleeping with us any time soon. We all love it. Plus we have two more on the way and live in a two bedroom apartment so the twins will be in the second bedroom. No room for a toddler bed in there with two cribs so she will definitely be with us in our bed for a while longer (lol). I don't mind though. i love the middle of the night snuggles.

like everyone else said when your ready My girls are 3 and 5 and every once in awhile they will still climb into bed with daddy and I. Heck every once in awhile I will go over to my moms and climb in bed for a snuggle

Mine never slept with us at night but we do occasionally take naps together. My daughter is 4 and doesn't always nap. her brother does. I'm pregnant and when I'm tired I ask her to come lay down with me so I know where she's at and i can rest too. No one naps with me but their daddy when he's home though. It's just me and my daughter. my son.....does not nap well with others. :)

Well for us there was no age because my children were never allowed to sleep with us ever.

No age limit, just depends on your comfort level. If he's happy and you are happy, then it's fine! When someone wants to change it then reevaluate :)

I'm divorced as of March 24, 2011. My child never slept with me & my husband. He loved his own bed. When his daddy left, he felt scared in our big home. He asked if he could sleep with me. I have a king-sized bed. He says that he feels safer.

When you can't stand it anymorr. Ha! No, seriously, I don't think there is a specific age, it is just up to the child and parent(s) when it is time to move to separate beds. If you wait for your child to be ready, it can take quite awhile so if you are ready now then transition slowly, leaving the option open for a late night snuggle visit if your child is no longer a baby. Undoing cosleeping for a child who's done it all their short little life will require patience and understanding!

When either of you are no longer comfortable with it, or if it's causing difficulties in your marriage.
