  1. I listen to Jane a lot on my way to work and I find a lot of what she has to say offensive.
    It’s totally obvious that she’s never had kids: she’s very outspokedn about that and she’s ALWAYS got an opinion about the best way to raise them. (even thoguh all she’s got is dogs)

    We don’t co-sleep yet because of a multitude of reasons but that doesn’t mean we never will. I like having Maelin in her own space: so far, I haven’t had to deal w/ the seperation stuff that sometimes comes w/ co-sleeping. However, there have been days that I wish I was sharing that with her. Maybe when she’s a bit older…

  2. Well I did not take Mr Pitt to mean that the kids always sleep in their parents bed. More that during the night the kids evenually make file into their parents room and jump in the bed and go back to sleep.

    If you watch Mr Pitt interview on ABC, he says each night he or Angelina spend time with each child as they fall to sleep speaking to them about their day.

    I think this backs my belief that the kids start out in their own bed but sometime thur the night they run to mom and dad’s bed.

  4. I emailed a long letter to Jane the same day as you and still have not heard back anything from her. Strange. I thought the Kevin Kline comment was great and hope other famous people start speaking up about it bec. then mainstream people will start to see it as normal – sad but true.

  5. Hi Jane,
    I think co-sleeping is quite appropriate for kids. Co-sleeping supports the child and make them aware of safety.

    Here is the question you arose that if parents don’t nurture their children, who will? After all its parents’ duty to nurture their child until they grown up. Infact, co-sleep may have some bad effect but not more than good.

    In some rare cases sick kids, kids who don’t sleep well, kids that get scared at night, getting up to nurse / feed the baby, etc nobody would like for co-sleeping.

  6. Generally co-sleeping is the practice of having our infant in our bed with us during sleep. Cosleeping promotes breastfeeding and bonding, and it is safer than crib/cot sleeping when practiced correctly. In Western culture, it’s widely taught to “sleep teach” your children by placing them in a separate bed and even a separate room, so that they’ll learn to sleep on their own. But I personally feel that co-sleeping is the best for our infant for that makes feel them safety and secure.
