I wouldn't. Setting yourself up for a hard wean later on. We stuck it out with my daughter and now at 22 months has been sleeping in her Bed - yes bed all night for the past 6 months

Is there any particular reason why you want to start? Knowing why would be helpful before responding.

Why would you start at such a late stage. Avoid if possible as it will be harder on you both later on.

Depends on the reason one would want to start co sleeping.
I started co sleeping with DS at around 2yrs of age. He was always a shocker of a sleeper (geting him to bed was a battle), but once his 2 yr molars started to come thru, well that was it. He went from being a shocker to get to bed, to 'i give up,'.
We co slept for about a year even once DD was born and she was sleeping in the bassinet next to my bed.
I had bought him a bed and had it all made up for him. I didnt try to push the issue, but I would mention him sleeping in his big boy bed every now and again, and then all of a sudden one night, he just did! I think the fact that he knew DD slept in the same room as us, and then moved to the cot in her own room, was what made the differnece.
I probably wouldnt do it again (or maybe I would, as I dont regret it).
having said that, if its not a problem for you, than its not a problem.

I started co sleeping with my DS about 20 months due to him suddenly waking every hour or two. It worked well and he has weaned himself off. Now he sleeps in his own bed but comes in in the mornings.

Thoughts on what?
I must say though that co-sleeping is just 'sleeping' IMO, it's not really something to debate or a choice where you think about the 'consequences', it's a total non-issue for me.
So, starting co-sleeping at 19 months? Sure. Wouldn't even think twice about it. If that's what one or both of you want to do, then do it.

Thoughts on starting so late!
DD2 is a shocking sleeper at the moment, waking 7+ times a night... Last night was especially bad, but we were at my parents, she was overtired and possibly cold! Half way through the night she came in with me, and slept a solid 4 or so hours... DH reminded me that DD1 did the same thing, but I just can't remember...
I'd rather not do it this late, but if it all means we get bigger blocks of sleep, I was just wondering if it was worth it, as DH and I are exhausted (welcome to parenthood, I know)!

I started cosleeping when dd was 2. Overnight she turned into a horrible sleeper and was terrified of her room for some reason.
It was the easiest thing for us to do.... At least we all sleep ha
