    I do and I have most of the time since she was 2 weeks old (she's 4 and a half now). 

    I started because it made her frequent nursing at nighttime easier, we briefly had her sleeping in her toddler bed but she'd always wake up and need to be comforted back to sleep.  I brought her back into bed because I knew she much preferred it, and now I do too.  I love sleeping next to her!  I think once she starts school next fall we'll have to have her in her own bed again but for now I'm enjoying my time with her. smile

      This is so sweet and practical wink we also co-sleep with 2 daughters, younger is still nursing and it's so much easier that way.  And with older is so sweet to snuggle wink
      Thank you for sharing your experience!

    My son will be two in April, and I breastfed him until about two months ago. We have co-slept since he was about six months old. He originally slept all night in his crib, so we weren't going to break him of that, but then suddenly he did not want to sleep in his room anymore. The co-sleeping began, and we still do it to this day, although I am working on getting him to sleep in his own bed. He absolutely refuses to sleep in his bed during nap time for some reason, but we are at least one step closer at bedtime. He will fall asleep in his bed at night now, but he still wakes up after about two to three hours screaming to come to bed with us. Co-sleeping has been great, truthfully. It was a life saver while we were nursing. Really, it was the only way to ensure that we got any sleep at all, so it was basically a done deal. Our only concern is that his dad and I hardly receive any time together alone at all, which is why we are trying to get him used to sleeping in his room now. Fingers crossed. I thought he would be nursing forever too. haha He will get better in his own time. (:
