Fifty-one per cent of babies who have trouble falling asleep, who wake up several times a night, and when they do have difficulty restarting sleep, end up sleeping in bed or in their parents' arms. That's what a new study reveals on the quality of sleep in babies 6 to 15 months of age.
The investigation, carried out by the Neurophysiology Section of the Virgen de la Luz Hospital in Cuenca, Spain, and which had the participation of 200 families with children between 6 and 15 months of age, shows that more than half of the babies who suffer from insomnia, sleep in bed (co-sleeping) or in the arms of their parents, a practice not highly recommended or considered appropriate by many families.
It is not only important that babies sleep in their own crib, but also that they always feel identified with the same elements at bedtime (schedule, song, massage, etc.). It is recommended that parents try, very early, to transmit healthy sleeping habits to the baby.
That your room is as quiet, that it maintains a suitable temperature, and that the environment and a cozy crib can provide you with feelings of peace, tranquility and security. It is also important that the baby always falls asleep at the same time.
The study also reveals that only 58.8 percent of 15-month-olds initiate sleep alone. It is assumed that at this age, insomnia symptoms are reduced in children. Those who are against children sleeping in the arms or in the bed of their parents, argue that sleeping in the wrong place, that is, where it is not their crib, is harmful for the baby.
The study says that 55.3 percent of children who wake up more than twice a night is because they sleep with their parents or in their arms.
