Comment on It’s OK to Nurse to Sleep by Christina // InThePineTree.
Lovely post! I always cringe when I hear other moms disapproving of nursing to sleep. As you said, it’s so important for infants and toddlers to have that closeness and comfort when going to sleep. Taking that away from them before they are ready just seems unfair to me. My son is 19 months old and he only will go to sleep while nursing. It doesn’t bother me – I’m his mama and this is what I signed up for!

What I Want To Teach My Children About Sleep
I think this is such a great topic. I was a CIO baby and ‘slept through the night’ at 6 weeks old (never mind that I was 6 weeks premature!). I have always had a very hard time bed sharing. When I met my husband and we started doing over-nights, I would never get any sleep. I just couldn’t sleep with someone else next to me! Once we moved in together it took me the better part of a year to get to where I could comfortably sleep next to him.
Currently ‘we’ are co-sleeping – my son (19 mo) and I sleep in the queen bed in the master and my husband sleeps in the twin in our son’s ‘room’ (room where his clothes and books and such are!) that will one day be our son’s bed. But, my husband goes to bed later than us and gets up earlier than us, so it works out. And there’s just not room for the three of us in the queen bed! 😉 The boy and I like to spreeeaaaad out!
