    16th December 2016

    We’ve had an incredible seven months, but like all good things, our co-sleeping journey had to come to an end eventually. Before he was born, I thought he’d be in with us for six months. When he got here, I didn’t ever want him to leave. It’s had its highs and its lows. It’s felt…
