My family isn't very supportive of bedsharing. Personally, I can't imagine my child sleeping alone in another room. (I don't even do well with him sitting in the back seat of my car where I can't see him!) I know it's not the "norm" for most families in the U.S. to share their bed with their children, but it's what feels right and works for us. I knew I wanted to co-sleep with Wesley's bassinet in our room, but I hadn't anticipated bedsharing.

Once I went back to work at 7 weeks postpartum, it just felt right to have him next to me in bed so I wouldn't have to lose sleep breastfeeding. I'm away from him for over ten hours each weekday. Why should I be away from him at night as well? He sleeps much more soundly and falls back asleep after brief wake-ups because he can feel me right next to him. I'm not worried about when he'll move to his own bed. He will when he's ready.
