Even though she thought the idea was crazy pre-baby, Mason shares the family bed with Scott and Kourtney and she's blogging about how much she loves the bonding time with her 6-month-old.

Co-sleeping can be controversial, but it looks like Kourtney is practicing safe co-sleeping by removing all of the pillows from the bed to avoid suffocation. Still, she's hearing mixed reviews from friends and wonders if she's setting herself up for a lifetime of the baby in the bed.

We also went back and forth on the idea, but ultimately decided against co-sleeping every single night. It's a very personal choice, and as long as you're taking precautions (not drinking heavily or using drugs, removing any items from the bed that could cause suffocation), it can be a wonderful thing to share with your babies.

Still, some parents want to take back their bed and their privacy (this was a big part of our decision), while others think the risks are just too great to even try co-sleeping.

It's nice to see a celebrity talking about co-sleeping and how she weighs these parenting decisions in a public forum. It might make moms stop and consider something they wouldn't have before, while still feeling it's perfectly acceptable to question any preconceived notions.

Do you co-sleep?
