My name is Lena... and I'm a co-sleeper

Okay, okay... it's time to fess up. We're a family of co-sleepers! Yes, that's right, our kids don't sleep in their own beds. It's not something I'm necessarily "proud" of, and our bed certainly isn't big enough for the 4 of us, but it works. And our kids won't always sleep with us, right? So why not take advantage of the extra cuddles we get with them at night?

Our kids are happy and well-rested, and it made the first year of nursing them so much easier! No need to drag myself out of bed, into the nursery and then back to bed... I just rolled over, and they did the rest!

I read an article in this month's Today's Parent, and I was happy to see another family of "sleep-sharers" who are happy with their sleeping arrangement, as are we! That being said... someday, maybe soon, our kids will sleep in their own beds and we will finally be able to stretch out and nod off to la-la-land for hours & hours without worrying about being pushed off the bed or waking up with the smell of dirty diaper in our face... but I think I'll sorta miss it...
