At what age do babies start developing attachments to cosleeping? I recently started letting my LO go to bed with me and I love to snuggle with my son to go to sleep, I'm just worried if I let him do this for to long I won't have the heart to move him to his own bed. Please don't comment negatively on cosleeping, everyone parents in their own way!

I don't have a problem with it, my lactation consultant actually recommended it but I was too scared to do it. Good luck to you, I'm sure that creates and even stronger bond.

My daughter is 3 months and has been sleeping with me since I brought her home from the hospital... It's harder for me to let her sleep in her crib than it is for her.

I absolutely loved every moment of co sleeping. Still have a difficult time getting her into her own bed, but she is my favorite snuggler! I still wouldn't trade doing what I did. But every baby and momma are different do whatever makes you comfortable and happy!

I kept my daughter in bed with me for 6 months and then moved her into her own room. Love snuggling those babies ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

I hated having my little guys in their own room until I was sure they were big enough to come get me if they needed me- about 3. Our oldest went to a toddler bed in our room around 2. It was a little bit of a struggle but he got a cuddle buddy (stuffed animal) and he was excited to have a big kid bed. When he slept fine in that, we moved him to his room at about 3. He's 4.5 now and only rarely gets in our bed. His brother is almost 2 and still sleeps with us at night. So I think the answer is

Either keep them in and get used to it (usually a month and they don't want to go but more than 6 and they fight hard) switch it up so they are fine with anything, or keep them in their own bed. Finding sleep training books that outline the best times to change bedtime routines may help too. Mine is at home or I would write the ages. :(

I co slept from the start I had no choice Cuz she wouldn't sleep unless she felt me breathe on her or feel my heartbeat she later on my chest.

I think attachment starts in the womb. It all depends on your LO but most babies develop habits quickly especially when it comes to being close to mommy and daddy. My son is 7 and we have still have a night for him to sleep in our room and that is the happiest night of his week. If it were up to him he would sleep in our room every night. And we rarely ever co-slept at home but he did co-sleep with his grandparents almost every weekend and still does to this day.

I love co sleeping but I only do it with naps, not over night. But it definitely is great for nursing! I'd say put them in their crib for naps for they get used to it.
