"Co- sleeping with your kid makes the kid feel secure and develop a lot faster. They tend to cling with the mother and take a sound sleep. Moreover, I read somewhere recently that such kids grow up to be better as far as verbal skills are concerned."

Thou Art Mother replied to Momniscient's discussion Do you co-sleep with your baby?
"I am very bias.  I was a CPS investigator and worked many child deaths because of co-sleeping.  I know that many parents co-sleep, but the devastation that waking up to a dead baby out weighs any benefit for me.  Those parents could…"

"I think more parents co-sleep than we think.  I am from Africa and have lived in Asia for many years.  In many parts of the world, co-sleeping is not an option or even a concept.  It is just what happens naturally. For me I…"
