Do you think it is okay for mothers to let their babies sleep in bed with them?

    I liked having my daughter in her bassinet next to me but I was always scared to let her sleep with me until she was 1. I actually had one of those motion monitors that would sound an alarm if she stopped breathing in her sleep. Those work well.

    I am typically a light sleeper but being a new mother is so tiring that i was always afraid I'd not wake up if my baby was in bed with me and needed help. Plus I had an alarm in her crib that would sound if she stopped moving or breathing.

    I guess I did it reverse then. My daughter didn't start sleeping with me until she was a toddler!

    Aww, I love cuddling with my little girl at night. Until she tries to push me out of bed that is!

    My daughter is 3 and a half now and she has to fall asleep in my bed. If I take her to her room after she is asleep she usually wakes up a few hours later and comes back into bed with me!

    Shellie, I am a very light sleeper but that is still something i always worried about. I never did let my babies sleep with me while they were still little babies. I did zonk out a couple times during those late night feedings though!

    I can definitely see where it would help build a bond.

    Awww, my daughter is 3 and sleeps with me but she kicks my back and pushes me off the bed! My son is 1 and thankfully doesn't want to sleep with me yet. I don't think I could handle two kicking me all night!
