WITH YOUR BABY, CO-.

Sleeping together, also called co-sleeping,  In fact, often you are strongly advised. Wrongly. If you and your baby like it, you can just do it. However, it is important to make certain things happen when you crawl together with your baby in one bed.

No broken nights

Also in the Netherlands there are parents sleeping in one bed with their baby or older children. Some parents are sleeping with their baby because they like it. Others see it as the solution for the broken nights. In our country, sleeping together often results in mixed reactions. Do not let it down, you as a mother know what’s best for your child.

Proponents of sleeping together say that it is better for bonding with your baby, because you can also respond directly at night. For breast-feeding mothers, it’s an advantage that you do not have your bed. So if you get a comment, you have a resonance now!

Safety Precautions

Should you consider sleeping with your baby, please observe safety precautions. In infants, as well as older babies, you should always prevent a baby from falling into bed, getting caught or falling out of bed.

  • The most safe is to lay the mattress on the ground. This will not always be possible. A good solution is then to place the long side of the bed against the wall. Would you like to sleep together, but do you think it’s a scary idea? Then there are also co-sleepers for sale or baskets in bed.
  • Do not put on jewelry, put long hair in a tail and do not wear pajamas with strings and laces.
  • If an infant sleeps with you in bed you remove all the pillows in the first few months, and preferably the blankets or quilt. Warm dress so.
  • Let the baby sleep between the mother and the wall (note that there is no room for the baby to fall in!). Only the mother is aware of her baby’s sleep and will not lie on her child. This does not apply to fathers and brothers or sisters.
  • Do not drink alcohol and do not use drugs. In that case, you sleep too deep to be aware of your baby.
  • Do not leave the cat or dog in the bedroom.

Removing

Starting with sleeping together is not that difficult. One question many parents are doing is: How do I get back from there? Because once again you want to share your bed again with your partner, without the children. Do not worry, that comes by itself. Join your child’s rhythm and let it come to you. You will see that the sleepies will take place in your own bed during the day, after which it is a small step to put your baby in his own crib in the evening.
