I've been looking into this whole co sleeping thing, and I just wondered if anyone could help me with a few questions I have?
1. Can you co sleep with a newborn, and if so, how do you make it safe?
2. Is it more difficult for co sleeping kids to adjust to sleeping in their own beds once they're older, than it is for non co sleeping kids? I hope that makes sense!
The reason I ask is because my cousin co slept with her parents, and she is now 15 and can't sleep in a bed alone. She has to touch human skin to fall asleep, which made life pretty uncomfortable last time she stayed with us
It isn't like she is just making it up either - she just flat out won't sleep if there isn't someone beside her. Her Mum has been trying to get her into her own bed since she was 10 - did she just leave it too long?
I really like the idea of co sleeping when we eventually have a baby, but I don't want to find myself in the position of my Aunt who has a 15 year old in her bed spooning her every night.
I know there is a load of info out there on co sleeping, but I prefer hearing actual people's experiences.
