Before I became a mother, I remember sitting in my living room. My husband and I were meeting with our Doula and she was talking to us about future parenting decisions. She asked us if we would co-sleep. I remember my husband and I looked at each other with funny expressions on our faces and we both said, "Ehh, no we don't want him in our bed. He has a room and a crib upstairs". Well, fastforward to our stay at the hospital after giving birth and you will find a beautiful sleeping baby curled up next to his momma on the bed. The hospital staff thought it was charming. My Attachment Parenting Blog
Now at home, almost three months old, he has never spent a night away from his mother. I love co-sleeping with my baby. I love lying next to him and feeling his soft skin against mine. I love listening to him breath. This morning I spent an entire hour just looking at him and adoring him. It took everything I had not to stroke his little face and head and wake him up to kiss him.
Before becoming a mother, I could never have imagined how selfless and giving I could be to another little being. For as long as he wants, he's got a spot next to mommy in the bed :)
