    It's sad but I pick and choose who I tell also. I love co-sleeping. DD is a terrible sleeper but beside me I can put her down awake and close my eyes and she does the same thing

    I used to not tell people. then it became a screening process for new friends. particularly breast feeding till over 3 I'd drop into convo I was cosleeping & breast feeding a 2 year old.... I'd rather get it over with early than invest in a friendship & then they say crap.

    We bed share. He sleeps on whatever side he last fed on. I probably am a little lacklustre with bed safety, but I am always aware of where he is and naturally sleep with my arm around him and my knees up.

    We have co slept with DS since he was 7 months old (after 7 months of struggling with cot- still don't know why it took us so long).

    We have his cot pushed up against our bed as a side-car: one side of the railing removed, and his mattress brought to level with ours with use of high density foam underneath. Or you could use cushions, towels, unused sheets, but I found them getting dusty under there. We bought foam from Clark Rubber but heard you can get them cheaper elsewhere.

    So hubby on my left, bub on my right. They don't hurt each other, and bub snuggles up against me happy and asleep.

    He's 3 now and I wouldn't have it any other way (I work during the day so love cuddling him at night). But I also choose who I tell this too.

    I am definately learning that you don't tell too many people that you co-sleep, how ridiculous that people judge?! To me it comes naturally and works best for my babies and we all get a better sleep because of it. And I have very secure and sociable kids.
