Whilst I absolutely love cuddling up to my little ones. Right from the start my partner and I decided that we would put our children down to sleep every night in their own cots.
I believe this way it allows your childrens independence to grow. And it also gives you as a parent some much needed rest.
There are a lot of pros and cons to co sleeping. If you are considering co sleeping you should take note of the following pros and cons:
•Allows extra closeness and bonding with your baby
•If you are breastfeeding baby can easily fall back asleep again
•it's been shown that babies wake less often
•Baby could fall out of bed
•Parent could accidentally roll on top of baby
•Baby could overheat
•Baby could suffocate under the duvet or sheets
•Increased risk of SIDS if your baby was born prematurely
Do you co sleep with your baby?
