21 Co-Sleeping Tweets From Parents Who've Been There
Co-Sleeping — you either love it or hate it. And chances are, those of you who do co-sleep both love and hate it at the same time. It can be amazingly convenient, but it also comes with the obvious downsides. Like being kicked and hit in the face every 15 minutes. But misery (or joy, or emotions in general) loves company, and these co-sleeping tweets from parents who've been there are sure to make you laugh, cry, and gain a sense of camaraderie. Because, really, we're all in this parenting thing together.
Although I'm not an exclusive co-sleeper like some, I've slept (or rather, stayed awake in bed) with my two daughters many times. More of then than not, it was for convenience's sake because when you're breastfeeding baby, the choice to wake up every two hours or simply feed them while you lay in bed isn't hard to make. And although it's imperative to make sure you're co-sleeping as safely as possible, doing so can have its real benefits. Like actually being able to sleep.
So no matter where your opinions lay on the co-sleeping debate continuum, parents of all beliefs can relate to these all-too-real tweets about life as a co-sleeping parent.
