👼What Do You Think About Parents Having Baby Sleeping in Their Bed?
Hi, LuckScout members.
Parent sleeping in the same bed with a baby, or co-sleeping, has been a controversial issue.
There are a group of people who promote it. Saying that it helps create a strong parent-child bonding, make the baby safe, and help in nursing the baby.
However, there is also a group of people who against it—saying that co-sleeping increases the risk of suffocation, sudden infants dead, and other infant death related to sleeping. These are the saying of American Pediatrics Associations.
What do you think about it? Have you had any experience of co-sleeping with your baby?
We don’t co – sleep with baby but I think it has no issue to me. Sometimes children feel comfortable and sleep well when they sleep with parents.
Normally in Africa, babies sleeping with their parents in the same bed, it important to babies to feels their parents presence, it also make them comfortable while sleeping. With the evolution of the world things are changing.
I sleep with my kid only when he cannot urinate on bed and while is young at around 2 to 3 year’s .After he has to sleep a lone or with his brother or sister.
We only had our two in the bed the few nights and then on the occasions when they had nightmares. Some people I guess don’t have the option and are limited with space.
If it’s still too young, I have no issue we can create a space for the child in our bed, so that it becomes easy to access the mother’s breast at night. But as the child grows, it’s not a good idea to sleep with a child in the same bed.
According to the pediatricians,the best place for babies to sleep is in the parents’ bedroom,, they should sleep in their own crib, or bassinet. Also having the baby sleep nearby helps with breast feeding.
Babies in the same bed can be accidentally suffocated by a blanket, pillow etc.. But there are some alternative for mothers who are breast feeding.
For baby to sleep on the bed, I don’t see anything wrong with it. Is good for them to sleep on the same bed with their mummy.
Babies love to be with their parents, there is nothing wrong with that of course.
No never encouraged it as I am sure it would heighten the risk of being rolled on.
In our village, from 1 day to at least 4 years old babies sleep with their parents in the same bed.
What is good is that children should sleep with their parents in the same bed. It has many benefits for both parents and children.
Are you letting your baby to sleep in the same bed as you?
When we had our first child with my ex partner, we used to sleep together when she was 9 months old. I left them when she was 2 Years and half.
