The star revealed all on her website.
Having little kids and trying to get adequate shut eye can be challenging and one mom who is well aware of this is Kourtney Kardashain; with three kids under the age of six-years-old, the star has spoken out about finding a routine that works for you as a new mom – and for her, it’s co-sleeping.
Speaking on her website the Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ star said:
“Getting the kids to sleep through the night in my home was different for each individual child, when I had Mason, co-sleeping just kind of happened naturally. It’s what worked for all of us to get the most sleep, so I quickly embraced it.”
“But it was also really important to me to research the benefits and some of the criticisms when it came to this method, I also used certain things like the DockATot, which gave me more peace of mind.”
The 38-year-old explained that by the time her second child Penelope came around, she fit in with the co-sleeping pattern too and it wasn’t until her third child Reign came along, that things changed.
“Reign was the only one who has always slept in his own bed,” she reveals. “We didn’t use any sleep-training methods for him. By two-years-old, he started sleeping through the whole night without waking up.”
“Before, he would wake up a few times during the night and need a little back rub to get back to sleep. Sometimes he would fall back to sleep on his own too, so I really just felt things out as a mom.”
The Kardashian revealed that she still sleeps in the same bed as her children now and again however, they now can independently sleep alone and she does not regret sleeping with them for over the three years.
“With co-sleeping, I didn’t have to get up out of bed to get the kids back to sleep whenever they woke during the night,” Kardashian continued… “it was easier when one of the kids woke up, since I was right there. Co-sleeping just ended up feeling like we all got more sleep.”
“Also, as a working mom, if I didn’t have much time with the kids during the day, at least I knew we’d have the evening together as a family,” she explains. “Every kid is different, so if it works for you and your family, that’s the most important thing!”
