Hoarding: When Too Much is Truly Too Much

We’re all quite aware of what clutter is and how it can not only adversely affect how our household functions, but also how it can also have a negative impact on our health. But this isn’t the full extent of how bad things can actually get.…

Should babies sleep in their mom's bed?

According to this pediatrician, children who sleep with their mothers are less stressed than children who sleep alone. Moreover, children who fall asleep on their mother's breast rest better than those who spend the night in a crib.

The brain development of children can also vary depending on where they spend the night since it seems that the separation of the child and the mother and father every night if the children generate fear and stress, could lead to behavioral problems in adulthood.

Fear of sudden death and co-sleeping

The usual recommendations regarding infant sleep and sudden death say that babies should ideally not share a bed, but be in their crib, even if they share a room.

In a study carried out in the United Kingdom, it has been observed that in two-thirds of unexplained deaths children shared the bed with parents.

This makes the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths continue to recommend that parents and children do not share a bed.

Studying the children's dream

In a study, it has been seen that babies who sleep alone in a crib have a level of stress up to three times higher than babies who sleep in their mother's chest.

In addition, it has been observed that babies who sleep in the crib have interruptions in their sleep cycles, something of vital importance in the overall development of the baby's organs.

Babies should not be stressed

As we have said on other occasions, babies also get stressed and nervous as adults, with a (very) big difference. We know different strategies to calm down, relax and find solutions that return us to our normal state of tranquility, while babies do not.

They do not know how to relax, they cannot call their best friend to tell them their sorrows, nor can they write on Facebook that "today I have a bad day", so the only recourse they have for not living stressed is to avoid reaching that state and, Once they are in it, let mom or dad help them calm down.

If anyone asks me…

One of the advice I always give to recent mothers is: "do not listen to anyone, do not even pay attention to me", so that they search, compare, read, listen, learn and decide for them.

I comment this because with respect to the dream there are many theories, some in favor and others against sleeping with the baby nearby, some that think about the baby, others that think about the parents and others that try to look for a (difficult) balance.

Adults are more rational than babies and we are better able to understand loneliness and separation, they do not understand it and that is why they get stressed.

Well, separating a child from his mother and father is forcing the children to do something they are not prepared for.

If at the end you decide that each one sleeps in his bed and that each one has his place, that is to say that the baby sleeps in his crib or even in his room when he is older know that in many occasions you will have forced too much. Listen to him, see if that could be affecting him on a daily basis, and value the possibility of changing strategy if that is the case. Visit Baby Sleep Store, a great place where you will find the baby sleeping products and there are an endless amount of options, but the most important thing to remember is to pick something that you like!
