Sharing your bed with a toddler

Is beautiful. We hug all night, often all three of us bundled up in a family hug in our sleep.

Anyone who wants to start their family life off with love should consider bedsharing. I wish I’d have known all I know about natural parenting when I was pregnant, those early weeks would have been so much easier.

Our boy is 16 months old today, quite unbelievably, thankfully still very keen on breastfeeding, not sure I’d be ready for him to wean just yet, though I want him to self-wean so I’d just have to be ready, like it or not. The average for children who are allowed to self-wean is 2.5-3 years old.

He still feeds fairly regularly through the night but neither of us really wake.
