I put a queen mattress on the floor in our bedroom so i could co-sleep with my newborn (don’t want to do it in the same bed as my 100kg 6ft 1 husband). My 2 year old then started having problems sleeping through the night, after a month of having to run between rooms breastfeeding my baby then settling my toddler I just started bringing 2 yr old into bed with us as well. Having one either side of me they both sleep through the night (except for a couple of feeds) and wake up at 5am instead of previously 3:30am. Plus I love being close to my kids. Everyone tells me its a bad habit etc etc. and as much as i love hubby he’s a nightmare to sleep next to. I’m happy with this situation- and i was wondering how many other mummies still co-sleep with their children? At what age?
