Do You Co-Sleep With Your Children? Angelina Jolie, Kourtney Kardashian And These Celebrity Parents Do

Celebrities who co-sleep with their children

Co-sleeping with children has been a hot-button issue for parents for some time now as many label it as “unsafe,” “weird,” and “unhealthy” but it looks like there are more and more families who are turning off the lights and getting into bed together without any problems.

In fact, many celebrities from Gwen Stefani to Mayim Bialik and even Angelina Jolie co-sleep with their children and you know what they don’t care what anyone thinks about it.

Even stars such as Kevin Kline and Pamela Anderson still co-sleep with their children, despite the fact that they are teenagers.

I co-sleep with my children but not by choice. It’s been almost a nightly routine for my 4 and 2-year-old daughter and son to wake up in the middle of the night, climb out of their bed and crib and join my husband and I in our bed for the rest of the night. As long as no one is kicking me in the face and the sheets aren’t pee-soaked when I wake up, I don’t mind it at all.

Check out our photo gallery of other celebrity parents who co-sleep with their children and tell us, do you allow your children to sleep in your bed with you? Or are you more scared of the risks and hazards that come with co-sleeping?

    Shanna Moakler loves to co-sleep with her three kids and as she likes to put it, she doesn't care what other people think about it. She's even said that she doesn't care if her kids co-sleep with her even when they are old enough to go to college and get married!
  • Pamela Anderson 5 of 10
    Pamela Anderson
    Pamela Anderson gets a really bad rap for some of the things she does (and wears) but quite honestly, I think she's one of the best celebrity moms out there. Not only is she very active in her children's academic lives (she once volunteered as a math tutor at their school), but she is also a huge advocate of attachment parenting and co-sleeping.
  • Gwen Stefani 6 of 10
    Gwen Stefani
    There's no doubt that Gwen Stefani is one of the best hands-on moms in the celebrity world as she's always seen out and about with her kids. Gwen has once said that she wants to be a part of everything that her kids do, including snuggling and co-sleeping with her boys.

    Kourtney Kardashian made waves during the first episode of last season's "Kim and Kourtney Take New York" when she revealed that she co-sleeps with her son Mason while baby daddy Scott Disick sleeps in another room. Hey, whatever works, right? Well this type of sleeping arrangement seems to work for this family, as they are expecting a second child later this spring.

    Heidi Klum
    Heidi Klum has made it known that she's slept with all four of her children while they were newborns, despite the risks associated with co-sleeping with babies at such an early age. She's even said that she likes to nurse them to sleep at night and have them lay next to her for both her and her baby's convenience when they wake up in the middle of the night hungry.

    Who cares if they are in elementary school, right? Age is nothing but a number for this actress, as she revealed just last year that she still likes to co-sleep with her 9-year-old son.
