    I didnt read the article but I think it depends on the babys age and where exactly the baby was when the doing the deed.

    I voted for only if the baby was in a crib, but there’s an age limit on that.  Not entirely sure what that is, but defintely before they could talk.

    Huge difference to me in co-sleeping (meaning in the same room) which is pretty much accepted as a good thing for the first couple months, and bed sharing, which is highly contrivercial on both sides. For me, I can’t imagine having sex in a bed my baby was also sleeping in. The LAST thing I want on my mind is “Oh yeah, let me not squish the baby”. But I also don’t think it is child abuse, just possibly unwise.

    I’m pregnant and I don’t even like having sex when baby is kicking and being active in my stomach; I prefer to “do the deed” when he’s asleep and not moving around a lot.

    We plan to co-sleep, but if we want to get frisky, I’m putting the baby in his own bedroom and I’ll go get him after we’re done with “adult time”! Or if he’s asleep and we don’t want to wake him, we’ll go to another room.

    I think that if the baby is sleeping in the crib that might be okay, but only for the first few months…not at age 2 like the one in the article.

    No thats wrong.  Our children slept in the same room bed as us but we would do the deed in another room in the house.

    I’d be okay with it if the baby was asleep in the crib, but only up to a certain age…
