When did your child stop sleeping in your bed?

I have a son. He is 5. He is very smart and mostly independent. He still asks to sleep in my bed, and I tell him he is a big boy ab to sleep in his bed, but then he will still crawl in my bed in the middle of the night. Should I let him stay in my bed or take him back to his own? My boyfriend (not his bio father)does sleep over on weekends and doesn’t mind when my son climbs in bed with us. I just don’t know when he stops wanting to be in my bed.

I don’t know any teenagers who still want to sleep in their parents rooms, so there is that… lol.

My daughter is 7 and still ended up in my bed .

My son is 10 and still sleeps with me sometimes or crawls in bed with me in the middle of the night

My son is 10 and my daughter is 7 and they still crawl in my bed at night

I know a 12 year old that sleeps in his moms room

Let him sleep with you as long as he wants to. Eventually, he will choose to stop and you will miss it.

My 9 year old daughter still crawls in the bed with me sometimes lol

Never. And that’s ok. Sometimes a boy just needs his mama. :heart:

About that age, I had to put my daughter in her bed and I stayed with her until she feel asleep. It worked for us. Our queen bed doesn’t feel big enough for my husband and I, no room for kids. But then we got a 90lb dog who helps himself…

My oldest is 9 and still wants to sleep with me at times. Enjoy it, Mama. One day they wont want to anymore. :frowning:

I can remember being 21 and very pregnat…and still using the couch cushions for a comfy spot in my Momma’s room. That was THE LAST time I slept in her room.

Mine stopped when she was 8.

My 11 year old daughter still sleeps with me. I figure she’ll stop on her own pretty soon so I enjoy the snuggles while they last

Embrace it :heart_eyes: one day you will miss it.

What?!? Let him sleep with you for as long as he wants. You’ll miss it when he’s a teenager and wants nothing to do with you.

My sons are 5 and 10 and they sleep with us. Before I had kids I thought it was weird. But now that I have kids, I wouldn’t want it any other way. I love cuddling, having story time, and just talking with my boys. I want to enjoy the time I have with them. Because they grow up so fast. I feel my boys will always be able to talk with us.

My son is 9 and still sneaks into our bed sometimes. I scoot over and enjoy the snuggles.
