I don't see anything wrong
I don't see anything wrong with co-sleeping at all! I do it and my son (also named Mason!) is fine. I don't put his head near my pillow, I don't put a blanket on him, and I angle his body so his face isn't too close to my body. I'm a very light sleeper and anytime he moves or makes a noise I wake up, as most other moms probably do. I think it would be easier to sleep through your baby crying or your baby being in distress if they AREN'T in bed with you!

I am happy that this is
I am happy that this is working for Kourtney, but co-sleeping is not for me. I had my baby in a special crib attachment on my bed next to me for the first eight weeks, but then made the shift to his own bedroom. Getting to sleep alone with my husband is a precious thing. We love to cuddle and have our private time there, which would be next to impossible with our son in the bed. We do occasionally take naps with him, but not all night. He happily goes to sleep in his own bedroom. I have a sister-in-law that co-sleeps with her 6 year old daughter and 4 year old son. She couldn't bear to see them cry when they were asked to sleep in a different bed. It has now become a dependency issue and my brother is out in the cold sleeping alone on a different bed. He desperately wants to sleep with his wife, but can't because of the children. When he brings the issue up of having the children sleep in their own rooms, the kids cry and scream and his wife tells him he is being unreasonable. They no longer have any intimacy and I find that sad. That being said, it is completely up to each individual family to decide these things. There is nothing strange or creepy about it, humans have done this for thousands of years, it all depends on what works for each family and individual.

Is Kourtney Kardashian Strange for Co-Sleeping with Her Toddler?
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.

Love Enough for Two
It was getting close to the time for me to deliver our 2nd child, just 6 short weeks away. Throughout the pregnancy, I was so excited about having another child. I LOVED being a mommy. I just knew I would love being the mommy of two babies!
