Whose Bed Is It Anyway?

Intereting article in the NEw York Times about children co-sleeping with their parents. I have never been a fan or Dr. Ferber. I have always believed that children are better off sleeping with their parents especially when they are infants and toddlers. As they grow older and more independent they will move into their own beds, as they get comfortable.

Whose Bed Is It Anyway?
Four years after the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development published a survey in which 12 percent of respondents reported sleeping with their babies, those babies have grown into children, and those children are still in their parents’ bed. Many parents are reluctant co-sleepers, too tired to disrupt a practice that may irritate one or both adults, but, in the end, seems to promise the most amount of sleep for the most people in the house.
