Quoting Ravey Candyass:" I preferrred the co-sleeping because CHub never slept anywhere else. from the day we brought her home she only slept if I was within arms reach. and yes, that includes naps."
Quoting * Sara *:" I love me some co sleeping. I don't sleep as well with my babies are in another room."Ditto. And I didn't complain but I don't understand why someone who cosleeps isn't allowed to complain. Some kids are just bad sleepers, cosleeping or crib sleeping.
Quoting Colton's Butterfly:" I hate when I'm pressured about parenting choices that I haven't even gotten a chance to make yet... ... [snip!] ... have to work, I have to work. No need to point out the obvious and make me doubt my parenting abilities more than I already am."
Quoting Coupon Lady:" i get the opposite.....you need to work thats why there is daycares etc... I do need to work single ... [snip!] ... work single mom of 3 here. But when I took a yr off for maternity/parental leave, I got smurffed on saying I was being lazy. lol"That's not being lazy! That's being a mother...I grew up with a stay at home Mom, and DH's mother was sort of a stay at home Mom...They value staying at home, which leaves me asking, hello? Single mother here! I don't exactly have a ton of options once LI money runs out....

Quoting Coupon Lady:" See here no one is a sahm.....And taking the time off is used since we get 52 weeks paid time off ... [snip!] ... as I need too. But fo rth eones who dont work and their hubbys do work, they get smurffed on for being home with the kids. lol"
Quoting Colton's Butterfly:" Lol, that is insanely different! Everyone around here is a sahm...There are so many Moms and Tots groups, ... [snip!] ... wrong place, obviously! I don't think one is necessarilly better than the other, they both come with benefits and downfalls."
