As if we didn’t already have enough to worry about, a new study says not to feel guilty about letting your children share the bed with you. However, do be worried about SIDS and suffocating a child if you take the risk.
This topic seems to be one that comes up more often with first children. I let my first child sleep in the bed with me all the time. Looking back, I don’t know that it was a great choice for me because getting him OUT of that bed turned into a real challenge! I took note of that when it came to my other children and I never got the habit going.
Thankfully, like the study said, I don’t think letting him sleep in bed with me really caused any affects on him socially or otherwise. So, do they sleep in bed with you or do you make that off limits?
