OK with it but makes sure that I know the risks associated with co-sleeping

He doesn't. I don't see why that would be any of his concern so I don't tell him. I don't hide it either.

DS2's pedi thought it was awesome. But, he is the only doctor to ever thank me for not getting him circumcised as well lol. He did tell me the risks and reminded me that if I'm a heavy sleeper, I don't need to. But with him knowing i was EBF he was like "Oh that's awesome. It will be so much more convenient and easy for both mom and baby!" lol

There are a couple doctor in our office. I've told the one we normally see and she is ok with it. However the other doctor I know would not be ok with it so I just don't tell her.

If it was ever mentioned to the pediatrician, he wasn't concerned. I don't remember if it ever was. I know he knew that the baby was in the bedroom, but I'm not sure it ever came up that the baby was actually in my bed. lol

But his current pediatrician has no idea that we cosleep, and I don't really think it is his business or that he'd particualrly care. lol

Yes she does & she doesn't see a problem with it at all. She's an amazing pediatrician & I am so glad to have found one that sees parenting the way I do :D

i never in my life would have believed i'd be in this position, but i've been letting my bebes into my bed
they're twins
i have a king size bed, but still it's too small
i looked at all the stats as far as the dangers
i have foam "rails" all around the peripheral of the bed
i clear out the bedding
they sleep ON TOP of the blanket, i sleep under one corner of it.

i worry a lot. but also i work all day. i get home and if i'm lucky i get 1 hour with them.
so yeah, it's hard to sleep train under these circumstances!
they hate their cribs, scream bloody murder if I try.
my family thinks i'm crazy
they're very very judgy
and my poor SO has been kicked downstairs

Yes and he told me it was time to stop at like 4 months. We agree on most things but I want to keep nursing my baby at night and the dr told me that at 4 or so months the baby did not need me nursing all night long.

This is how I feel too. My sister is a nurse and I can't.tell her we cosleep because she is dead set against it and she would give me a never.ending earful. I,never wanted to cosleep but its the only way I can get more then a hour of sleep.

Sorry for all the weird periods. My phone is lame.

When DS was hospitalized and wouldn't calm down on the first night there, I tried taking him into the bed with me. I'd been doing it since he was born and I couldn't roll or anything because of the c-section. The nurses rushed in and pretty much took him off me and I had to sit and feel horrible for the rest of the kids in the ward who couldn't sleep while he cried. Then the nurses told the doctors and they attacked me for wanting to co-sleep. Since then, I just gave up being up front about it because I was tired of being lectured.

No they do not know. They have asked where she is sleeping and I have lied. Not his business.

Nope he doesn't know. A lot of my friends use him as well and they all said he asked them where the baby slept and that he is very against co-sleeping but he has never asked me. none of his business really.
