Re: How long did you co-sleep for?
with my 4th, he pretty much co-slept until he was over 4 and came in bed with us until he was 8 or so. we didn't care. At 14, he puts himself to bed in his own bed when he is tired and all my older kids do as well and sleep just fine. I have always co-slept- the shortest time was maybe 18 mo? (he started sleeping with his brother then) and the longest was the DS at age 4 (or 8, depending on how you look at it, lol). We have a 6 mo old and 2 1/2 yr old in bed with us and (depending on if we had the room at the time), I will probably move them together to a room when they are 2 and 4 or 3 and 5 if they want to.
