I have just come across this quote in the co-sleeping section of this site (http://www.pregnancy.com.au/resource...-bonding.shtml):

'Learning to love is an ongoing process for mother and baby and hormones continue to play an important role - day and night.' (Pinky McKay)

Wow! This resonates with my personal experience of co-sleeping. It has enabled me to bond with my baby - even in the early hours of the day. What do any fellow co-sleepers out there feel have been the main benefits of co-sleeping for them and their little one?
