Re: How long do you recommend co-sleeping?
I say as long as everyone is comfortable too. We have a king and a twin pushed together. I bought a tee thing to fill in the gap from Bed Bath and Beyond and had a special bed sheet made to fit it.
My children are 3.5 years and 18 mts. I can not imagine them anywhere else. Everyone here is very happy and comfortable.
Falling asleep with my family all snuggled close it's just so much the vision of love for me. To sooth them in the night from a bad dream before they even fully wake up or to comfort them if they are having a restless sleep is to me very important. Plus to wake up in the morning to sweet kisses and whispers of "good morning momma" I will cherish every moment and when they are ready (whenever that may be) we will go bed shopping for them.
Just to be sure I am clear though, follow your heart co-sleeping is a personal choice and is not right for every family. Sorry so long winded.
