Co-sleeping

Is co-sleeping a good or bad habit? Like anything else, experts have different ideas, and different ways to handle this situation.

I asked my pediatrician that same question because my first-born son would not sleep in his crib. Now keep that phrase in mind: would not sleep in his crib. He would scream and cry every time we would put him in there, so the crib actually ended up what we would use as a punishment when he would not behave. So I asked one of the doctors from our pediatrician’s office, Dr. Mary Lam from Pediatric Alliance, who said that is is perfectly normal for children to share beds with their parents. She said that for many Asian cultures, that is actually the norm. Of course, though, you deal with the downfall that you really don’t get a good night’s sleep because if you child is like mine, he’s constantly kicking, moving, tossing, turning, and right now, insists on sticking his hand down my shirt, also more and more people are finding out that the root cause of their sleep problems stem from Central Sleep Apnea once they have been properly tested.. Also, it often kicks the hubby out of the picture, causing you to no longer share bedrooms and therefore have less pillow talk.
