I FINALLY did co-sleeping!!!!!!!!!

I have done co sleeping three nights in a row and ABSOLUTELY LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never did it before because I was scared the dogs would lay on her, but I was soooo tired of giving her formula at night (please NO flaming, I couldnt keep up with her, being by myself and doing two jobs) but I have finally decided no more formula at night and I cant believe how much I love it. Thanks ladies!!! I am becoming more "crunchier" because of you!!!!!!!!!

YAY for you mama!!

I absolutely adore co-sleeping and I can't imagine doing it any other way. A crib is a totally foreign concept to me! LOL

We don't cosleep (not opposed to it, we just don't) but when you are working so much it is nice to at least get to sleep with your baby, isn't it?

well .. two jobs sounds like a lot .. but really the only day I am away from the kids pretty much all day is monday, I only work two days a week for one, and its during the time they take there naps, and then the other one is three days a week, and thats for my mom and my sister, and its only for a couple of hours .. just enough to keep me sane ..

You forgot your other fulltime job - being a mommy! There is a lot of work involved in that too, so it's nice sometimes to just snuggle them

Congrats - I totally feel that if you are bf that cosleeping is the way to go so you get sleep. With Andy he starts in his crib (its sidecar our bed) and when he wakes up I take him and just move him closer and we are both back to sleep in minutes (or at least I am so I assume he is too! LOL) Some nights I will wake up to find him latched on (after I've moved him over and latched him on - he wakes up again and just latches hisself on- who needs mom all he needs is boob!) Congrats and I agree it is the best.

Yay, Jaci! Isn't it so sweet? We part-time co-sleep, and it works perfectly for us. I love snuggling with my lil' guy. And the girls, too, when they need it.
