I was IMing with a friend (who's mother is our 9 month old's pediatrician btw) when out of the blue my friend says:
"Btw my mom said co-sleeping is against medical advice tho she added that since your baby is a little older shed likely let you know if you rolled over on top of her. But she seemed kind of doctorly-distressed please dont think i am judging"
She knows we've been co-sleeping, but I never asked her to ask her mom for her medical opinion on our behalf. I assured her nicely that I had done my research, I'm a light sleeper, I wouldnt even chance it if I was the slightest bit concerned, yadda yadda.
I know people will always have their opinions, but I was a little surprised nonetheless. I don't feel like I need to defend my choices, especially to someone who doesn't have children themselves, but it kind of irritated me and I felt cornered like I did have to explain myself to her.
For those of you who co-sleep, have you felt like you've had to defend your choices to friends/family? Am I wrong to be a little miffed at my friend, even if her warnings are "seemingly" well-intentioned?
(Edited to change atrocious typo I noticed days after the fact. )
