Many cultures may disregard co-sleeping, especially with kids. Many of the cultures will consider it as a taboo. However, it has been scientifically proven that co-sleeping has some underlying benefits. There are unbelievable benefits, which are linked to co-sleeping.
It is hard for the parents to view co-sleeping as a taboo despite the many benefits and the comfort they feel when they sleep with their young ones. Scientifically, there are many benefits linked to this practice.
It is clear that kids are born weak and helpless at the same time. Their mothers sleep with them to provide care for them during the night when they may be prone to danger. There are many dangers, which may be experienced at night. The parent will always be available for their kids at night. There are also some added advantages that are linked to a mum co sleeping with her kid. Maintaining a favorable body temperature for the kid during the cold patterns of the night is also another advantage.
Sleeping together should not only be for the kids only but also for the toddlers who are below the age of maturity. If these kids may share sleep with one another, it is clear that they will form strong bonds during their childhood. This bond is also observed when the kids are co sleeping with their parents also. It has also been seen that children who co sleep with their parents have some added advantages in the way they view life. They come out strong with a strong sense of self-esteem. They do not suffer from stress disorders than the other children.
Co-sleeping is also seen to support breast-feeding to a higher level. When the child is sharing the same bed with his or her mother, it is very convenient, even for the mother to breastfeed the child. The mother will always be able to know when the child is hungry and be in a position of breastfeeding the child. This is very convenient than when the child was all alone in his or her bed. If such is the case, the mother may not be in a position of realizing that the child is hungry or really needs to be breast fed night. The mother is not required to move from her bed to go and nurse her kid in a different bed or room. Therefore, co-sleeping is so helpful, especially if it is a child/mother situation.
