I was asked to write about co-sleeping awhile back and am just now getting to it topic wise.

Do you co-sleep with your baby/child?

We have 3 kids, ranging from 8 years old to 7 months old, and not one of them has ever slept in the same bed as us at any time frame. I chose from the get go that they will not sleep in the same bed, just because I don't want to and like my privacy. 

We let baby sleep in our room in the bassinet until they sleep all night, and then they get their own room, but are close enough to where I can hear if they wake up to feed them. Our son is 7 months old and hasn't slept in our room for a few months now. He sleeps from 9 or 10pm until 6:30 or 7am usually. 

Personally, I have no need to let baby sleep in same bed as us. We don't want to and that's the end of that. Some people do and that's fine, but I don't want to risk rolling over on him. I just prefer that our kids from birth on up sleep in their bassinet, then pack n play, then toddler bed.
