Should I sleep separately from my baby?

Question

Our pediatrician told me to sleep separately from my baby. She is 1 year old now and we are sleeping together from the beginning. Should I really stop and put her to bed alone?

  1. My baby used to sleep alone all the time, but now she is 7 years old and keeps coming to my bedroom during the night and asking to sleep with me. 😀

  2. My daughter only started sleeping with me when she became 3 years old. She used to sleep in the crib when she was a baby. We love sleeping together and snuggling. 🙂 I can’t see why it’s bad to sleep with your children.

  3. I also sleep together with my child since birth! Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because she kicked me with her legs, but I don’t complain as it’s so sweet to sleep with her! When she grows up it will be difficult to even give her a hug, that’s why I am enjoying it while it lasts.

  4. I know that doctors recommend to sleep separately, but I think it’s just a boring theory! It’s so good on practice to cuddle with my baby! 😀

  5. My son sleeps on his own since birth, that’s also what our doctor recommended. I don’t understand the mothers like my best friend who sleeps with her baby all the time. Where are your husbands, ladies? How about your personal life? I agree that sometimes it’s good to sleep with your baby, but not every single night if you want to keep your marriage..

  6. I think it depends on your child. If it’s too difficult for her to sleep alone, then you should sleep with her while she needs you. But it’s important for them to be able to fall asleep on their own when you aren’t there. Also, I agree that your husband also needs you and it’s wrong to forget about him if you have a baby.
