Re: Co-Sleeping at 8 months +
we always co-sleep thru toddlerhood at least. I just ignore them when they crawl on me and try to talk (if it's the middle of the night). We have our mattress on the floor, so we don't have guardrails or anything. We just teach them how to get off the bed safely.
Jul, Mama to 1/2 dozen boys; and been doing those "off-beat" parenting things way before they were cool and learning more each day!
