This article was on "Most Emailed" list of the New York Times all last week. It's an interesting article about how parents (namely NY parents) have taken to co-sleeping. And it seems that the article took more of an approach of how parents have taken to the family bed out of desperation rather than pure desire to share their king-sized sheets.
And while I truly thinks it is a personal decision between mother and father regarding the sleeping habits they will instill in their home, this article made me think. Because if you have children, you have sleeping issues. No child, let alone baby, is a perfect sleeper 100% of the time. There is no possible way with how much their little bodies and minds are growing, learning, developing, and moving. If nothing else, the article reminds us that we are all in the learning boat about how to get the most z's for tired bodies.
We don't co-sleep in our home. Not out of disdain for sharing quarters, but rather in the beginning I was too freaked about rolling onto her that I kept her in her bassinet close by. And by five months of age, she seemed to need to fall asleep on her own anyway. What do you do?
Sidenote: the woman's home that the writer interviewed is actually the editor of Domino mag. Check out the pics - fabulous home style no?
