Me and my son both sleep in my double bed, and people keep pressurising me to get him into his cot and let him 'cry it out'. After a lot of research, I am happier to have him co-sleep with me. He is 8months old, I do not smoke,drink or do any drugs. My bed is safe, with a side board designed to stop him falling out. Many studies conclude that babies who co-sleep actually benefit hugely in terms of independance and security in the long term, as well as reducing the risk of cot death. My view is that he is not being 'naughty', he is having his needs met (not that babies who sleep in their cots aren't, but my son is very set on sleeping with mummy). Is there anyone else who is sharing their bed with their baby and happy with this arrangement?
