Reply To: Co-sleeping

I hope that when she gets her own room the appeal of it being a special room just for her with her own bed (her own bedsheets!) and her own wall decorations etc etc will persuade her to stay…!

My experience is almost the opposite. I always wanted to do the co-sleeping thing, and I thought that the Japanese style of parents sleeping either side of the child in the 川 shape was so wholesome and sweet. I wanted to be able to have sleepy morning snuggles with my daughter! But… she won’t sleep if someone else is in the bed with her 😅 Even when she was drop dead exhausted from jet lag and needed me to stay with her until she fell asleep, she ultimately got disturbed by my presence and slept better on her own. I mean, she naps fine on her cot at daycare, but co-sleeping as a little family is out the window. Oh well…
