Why is it that mothers have such strong opinions against my babies snuggling at night?
My husbands military while he was oversees this has alleviated a lot of stress for my BABIES and me. Not JUST me (and)
although I could say that.
or I could say it's been happening since day 1. With ds2 I voted against it, but he ended up in bed with us at 6mon and hasn't left.
its convienent, I bf so it's easy, even my grandma who has 6 kids was strongly against it, (for her own benefit lol) but her last two she bf, and she recently told me, "oh yeah. They definitely came in bed with me, that was the best part about night feedings, they were easy!"
Than I have my grandmother in law, who has made crude remarks to me from the beginning.
Its just not as acceptable here as it is other countries. I bf and we do it too! Its unnatural to me to put my baby so far away. I know moms who do, and moms who don't. One friend actually lost her baby recently.... Was having breathing problems, threw up and aspirated his vomit. Yet none of the co sleeping moms I know have had their baby die in bed with them. I know it can happen. I have just hid it from people.
