My 2 year old still sleeps in the same bed with me, and my husband has also taken to sleeping in the other room.  We have just moved into a new place so hoping to get his room all sorted to start the move into his bed....  I have a 5 month old who sleeps in the camper cot next to me and my 2 year old still wakes up 3 times for a bottle. I am also too tired to go through the motions and you know what anything that makes my life easier at the moment... but need to get out this routine

My two youngest start out in their bed most of the time but always end up in ours!! My husband started working nights and I have started a bad habit of letting my 3 year old daughter sleep with me, but she knows that when daddy is off she has to sleep in her own bed! My 17 month on the other hand always ends up sleeping with us!!! I love them sleeping in my bed, it makes me feel better knowing they are where I can see them! LOL  I know one day they will sleep in their own beds and stay there, but for now I want them with me!!!! They grow up too fast anyway!

Your not the only mum. I have three girls 10, 4 & 1 and I am pregnant with twins. My two younger kids still get into bed with us at least 3 or 4 times a week at about 3am. My eldest did for a while too and I'm sure the twins will find somewhere to fit in there too when they are born. My hubby jokes that we are going to need two king size beds side by side! LOL. I love having my babies end up in bed with us. They always start out in their own beds and then gradually come in. You will miss it when they are grown up. My 10yr old hardly ever does it anymore and I miss the cuddles and make her lay down with us all on a weekend morning! She only lasts 5 seconds now before jumping out again. Haha

My first daughter (now 2 years) slept with us untill i found out i was pregnant with our second daughter. i started transitioning her into her own bed when i would give her naps. she would wake up alittle freaked out but got used to it. i still have to put her to sleep in our bed but i can move her to her bed and she sleeps all night and wakes up fine. it definatly is a hard habbit to break and will take some time. but i suggest starting now before it gets even harder!

Someone once told me to try to get her in her own bed by the age of 1 or it would only get harder and I wish I had listened! My 2 year old sleeps in bed with me and it's gotten so bad that my husband now sleeps on the couch! Break her of it as soon as you can!

Thank's everyone! I do start her in her crib but then she wakes up about 3am and I'm too tired to go through the motions! I'm hoping to transition into a toddler bed this summer she'll be 18 months!

You are definitely not alone. Co-sleeping is a lot more common than you think. My son is 22 months and he sleeps with me.

hi there, no your not the only mum to do that i dont it with my son till he was 18months i found that it was easyest way to stop it was to get him his own toddler bed, when he first slepted in it it was a dream come true because thats where he stayed all night and its only now and again that he comes in bed with me
