The first one is for people who are not so smart/practical but have too much money. Like Kardashians and Paris hilton. And this one is for people who are practical and have a brain. :D

I continue to think that the child must immediately have a perception of a space in which she has to sleep divided and separated from her parents bed, which possibly may be an occasional welcome. If you do not set up these basics right away you end up like my friends x and have a 12 year old boy who still wants to sleep with them.

Honestly I don't really get the whole co-sleeping thing I think it has something to do with bonding but I feel like it's putting the infant in danger no matter how many different techniques, I'm still gonna find it weird. I don't have any kids, nor do I want them so I guess it's a mute point

This is a great one. I always wanted my twins close by. Sometimes all a baby wants is the warmth & close contact from a loved one. God, I miss those days! They go by so quickly! Mine are almost 18 now.

Imagine the effort getting someone to help secure the little guy in the harness , and then undoing it when this gets tiring? Its much simpler to have them sit on your shoulders while you secure them by their legs with your hands. And you can set them down in a few seconds. KISS!

I don't like the feeling, that everything has to be under control, and also to connect something with your phone all the time. Yes, you will see illness faster, but I think it makes parents less care, in an unintentionally way. You watch your phone instead of your baby and this is clearly wrong to me.
