    i just have to gloat but i’ scared if i say it out loud i’ll jinx it!

    i’ve gotten crap Gigi’s whole life b/c we co sleep. how we do it has evelolved over the years but for the last 4 years or so it’s been us putting her to bed and expecting her to sleep in her own bed at least to a certain hour that’s gotten later and later.

    all along i have insisted that co-sleeping is a natural, a part of human instinct, and that when she was comfortable she would stop it all together on her own. i’ve been laughed at and asked what i was going to do when i had a 13 yo in bed but i pressed on. after struggling and failing with more modern sleeping arrangements for the first 3 years only to end up with her in our bed most nights anyway i knew i was doing the right thing.

    she had gotten to the point where she only got in our bed half the time, often after 3 am. then it got to be 5 am and only a handful of times a week. now it’s been over a month and she is, with out fuss or crying or punishing or incentive voluntarily sleeping in her own bed all the time at 7 and a 1/2.

    i am VERY self satisfied at the moment.

    Also, I gloat because everyone who gave us crap for cosleeping for nearly 4 years has at least one kid who never, ever, ever sleeps in his or her bed.

    That is awesome! I will not give you crap – more like credit – we have never co slept – I don’t know how you can do it! I am such a light sleeper – I would never get any sleep.
    Hopefully this trend continues!

    Magster, i have notcied the same thing.

    Sara, i didnt intend to at first. i had been taught it wasnt normal but we struggled with seperate sleeping so much that even my light sleeper husband perfered to have her in the bed b/c that meant she wasnt crying and we werent getting up every twenty minutes or laying on a futon matress on her floor.

    we’re moving friday so i’m a little worried that we might back slid a little.
