You will be allowed to sleep through right from day one
I hope that I can inspire others who sleep in the same room and the same bed as their children to be proud and happy with their choice. Our son, who is six and a half, has no plans to sleep alone. He thinks it’s a bizarre thought. Why on earth would he do that, though ?!
Sleeping is something we do together, like eating and going out. It’s nice, and we love it all. It works, we get the sleep we need, and we strengthen the community on which we build the castles of our lives. What more could you ask for?
Today my husband thinks it is a crazy thought that ‘kids should sleep outside the nest ?!” But in honesty, he came from a different place. When we started out, he thought it was normal that each kid should sleep alone in their own bedroom. But lucky me, I have a husband in constant development. For me, it has always just spontaneously felt right and essential, beautiful, practical, functional, & healthy. By the way, I don’t think I would close my eyes and fall asleep if I couldn’t hear them breathing next to me.
(I would like to emphasize that I am not opposed to children sleeping in their own bed in their own room. As long as they are comfortable and happy about it, and it works for the family. Then everyone is free to adjust as it suits the family’s temperament.).
