Marriages evolve over time and, honestly, start to change the moment you say “I Do.” They change when you move locations or jobs, when you get pregnant, and once you have a baby. Once you’re a parent, there are decisions you’ll make regarding your child that will also serve as teaching opportunities that will teach you more about one another. For example, deciding to cloth diaper, formula feed, or co-sleep. Trust me when I say, there things you can learn about your marriage after co-sleeping.
I always knew that I would co-sleep with my baby when it came time. In fact, y husband and I were both on the same page when I got pregnant with our son and knew, without a doubt, that we would have his crib in our room. So, once we were home we started off with a bassinet beside the bed and, eventually, he moved to his crib. One day, however, he decided our bed would just be better. He moved on it, set up shop, and basically refused to sleep unless it was in our bed. It was an interesting experience, to say the least.
Like any other choice involved with parenting, there are numerous pros and cons to co-sleeping with your kid. In the end, though, I learned a lot about myself and my husband in the process.
