Re: I've gotta know...
All my 4 have been BF for over a year, and none have ever slept in my bed past the first month, when sometimes we would both fall asleep together because we were that exhausted. I do like having little ones in a bassinet in my room, though. Once they're only waking up once a night, it's time to have their own space, but I often will have DS start the night in his crib next door, and finish it in the crib in my room where I can plunk him as soon as he's done eating. Especially with all the colds he keeps getting, it's a good compromise.
My kids are lighter sleepers, and if DH or I want to talk or sing or work in our room, it's nice to be able to do so without waking a little one!
