Neil is a closet hippy. We co-sleep with Anne (her cot is next to the bed with the side down) and it works well for us. We may be co-sleeping for the foreseeable. Neil is more than happy to go with the flow. If you’ve met Neil, you’ll know he takes great pride in his reputation as a classically liberal / conservative curmudgeon (otherwise known as a grumpy old man). This aspect of his parenting personality has surprised even me.
