my 3yr old co-shares my room with me and his father.He does have his own bed (twin size)pushed next to ours(queen size) the reason is because he did have his own room but had to put him back in our room because his 8yr old brother who by the way has adhd&mood disorder kept sneaking into his room morn/night to wake him from sleep 4/5am and night time after i get my 3yr old to sleep.this is also when i'm sleeping and don't know i am wondering is it still ok to co-share with my 3yr old.He sleeps better and also feels mor comfortable in my room and wakes up in a better mood.please anyone respond i know there are some pple ot there that have different views on this subject.some dont agree with it.but it works for me and my family.And to this my 8yr old refuses to share a room with his little brother.

I co sleep with my children if it means I get a more restful night sleep. Both my kids 6 1/2 and 2 1/2 start the night in there room. My 6 1/2 year old wakes up just about every night and climbs into bed with us, it doesn't bother my husband and I, my daughter will yell for us to come get her which we do. I have found that if you talk about it like it's taboo parents will act as if it is, but if I speak to my sons friends and say "he still gets into bed with us every night", usually there is another mom who can relate to it.

I honestly don't see a problem with it. My oldest has actually just started trying to "put himself back to bed", and doesn't come in as often but like I said before if it means I'm getting sleep they can sleep wherever they want to.

thank you so much for the input.I very glad that i am not the only one who does this.Expecialy when there are other people out there even other family members that dont live with you can tell you what to do with your own family.Thank you i feel much better now. :)

I think it's best to do whatever works best for your family. Every family is different. So if this set up is what works for you guys and everyone is happy and everyone is getting the rest they need then it's perfectly ok.
