Infant Care (up to 18 months old) Board Index

My daughter is 21 months and I still co-sleep with her. I swore before I had her that I wouldn't either. I was in for a rude awakening when she came home, I didn't realize that I had to feed her every couple of hours all night, it was exhausting and I spent even more time trying to lay her down. So, I spent the first year sleeping sitting up on the chaise section of the couch holding my baby because it was easy and I didn't want my wake my husband because had had to work.

After my daughter turned one, we moved back to California and she slept with my husband and I in our bed for a few months until we found a permament residence until we buy here again. Now, my daughter and I sleep in her own full size bed in her room, because I do not want to disturb my husband because he has to work .

I also started this because when she was about 6 months old, I tried to put her in a crib in her room, but I worried too much because the other bedrooms in our new home were all in the front out of house and I didn't like that the windows were close to the ground. Now I sleep with her because I always have and her bedroom is on a different floor than ours.

Knowing my daughter she won't want to do this forever and within a couple of years max. when she can speak that sleeping arrangements will change. She is our only child. Also in many other countries it is natural for a young child to sleep with the parents, but in America that isn't really the "norm."
