On the premiere of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" Sunday night, it was revealed that Kourtney co-sleeps with her toddler, Mason (who is just adorable), while her baby daddy sleeps in another room. This is not so unusual, nor, do we think, such a crazy thing.
What is surprising is what an outcry of shock and disapproval such a revelation has caused. One would think that she had confessed to putting her baby to sleep next to a dangerous object! Oh wait, remember our blog post about baby sleeping with sharp and dangerous objects?
Rumorfix.com wrote that it was an "odd" revelation. The Huffington Post offered tags with its mention which included "crazy," "outrageous," and "weird." You should have seen the comments! Phrases like, "very sad" and "damaging" kept showing up. There were supportive comments espousing the benefits of co-sleeping. Naturally there were the expected comments about the Kardashians themselves. It seems people either love them or hate them or love to hate them!
Baby daddy Scott Disick quickly went on Twitter to explain, lest anyone think his baby mama is crazy or that he is anything less than desirable: "Just want to clear up the reason why we don't sleep in bed together. I'm not a good sleeper and with Mason in bed I can;t fall to sleep!" Sure, okay. We believe that just because he posted that on Twitter.
Kourtney first had to defend her co-sleeping Mason (did we mention he is super cute?) last summer when it first came out that she was co-sleeping with him. She assured the concerned masses that she was taking all safety precautions and admitted that had once judged moms who co-slept -- until she became a mom and realized the benefits of doing so.
What do you think about Kourtney's decision to sleep with baby Mason? Did you watch the premiere of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York?" Let us know what you think in the comments!
