It just depends on you where the baby will sleep. Some parents are very upset that the little one has to sleep in a crib in his room, while others prefer the crib to be in the same room with them, and others choose to sleep in the same bed with the child. Obviously, whatever you choose, there are benefits and disadvantages.

It just depends on you where the baby will sleep. Some parents are very upset that the little one has to sleep in a crib in his room, while others prefer the crib to be in the same room with them, and others choose to sleep in the same bed with the child. Obviously, whatever you choose, there are benefits and disadvantages.

Advantages of separate beds:
• The child will get used to waking up and eating less for the night.
• Have more intimacy with your partner.
• Sleep will not be disturbed by the slightest movement of the baby or his instinct to lie on the bed or on your tummy or chest.
• You will be able to rest better.


• You will not have to struggle later to teach the baby to sleep alone.
Advantages of sharing the same bed:
• More comfort. It will be much easier for you to breastfeed your baby overnight and you will be able to come much faster and easier to meet his needs.
• Close physical contact can lead to good emotional contact.
• Tactics have the opportunity to spend more time with the child.
• Breastfeeding is encouraged by the fact that during the night it is facilitated by this approach.
• Helps the baby fall asleep easier and faster, especially in the first months of life and when he wakes up in the middle of the night.
• Helps parents who are separated from their children during the day to recapture the missing approach during the day.
How safe is it for the baby to sleep with mom and dad?
The experts' opinions are divided regarding the sharing of the same bed with the child. Recent studies have shown that the baby's body feels the need for closeness and contact with parents at least until the age of 6 months. The same studies have shown that a baby's body temperature and breathing are much better regulated when there is direct contact with parents.
If you decide to sleep in the same bed with your child, consider that the little one has nothing to do with you if you or your spouse have consumed alcohol or have taken drowsy medications. There is a risk of rolling over the child without realizing it. (Under normal conditions, parents instinctively know where the child is and do not roll over, just as each of us knows where the edge of the bed is and does not fall from it.) Also, smoking parents are good not to sleep in the same bed with the baby.
Another risk to which the child is subjected when he sleeps in the parents' bed is that of suffocation, due to the pillows and bed linen. In his crib, the child will have the linens, specially designed for his safety.
Also consider the fact that if you sleep the baby in the same bed with you, it will be difficult to reveal it and get used to sleeping alone. It seems that the transition from the parents' bed to their own bed is easier around 6 months, when the habit is not yet settled in the child's mind and other factors such as fear of separation do not intervene.
Baby cot in parents' bedroom
However, there are specialists who are still worried about overheating of babies when sleeping with their parents. Therefore, most experts recommend that the ideal option to put the baby in a separate crib, close to the parents' bed, at least up to the age of 6 months. This will be close enough to you to hear him and be near him when he needs to and you will avoid overheating his body.
The baby in his room
We pass this last version on the list because, in general, parents, and especially mothers, are very caring and do not even bear the thought that their baby is alone in another room and can not hear every move. In addition, you will need to wake up more often and move to the baby's room to feed and sleep. And you and your baby will sleep less.
On the other hand, you have the advantage that the baby will still teach you how to sleep alone in the room, and you will be able to go to bed with the baby for one night, one of you being able to stay quiet (only valid if you do not breastfeed and can go Dad to give him his baby's bottle). Obviously, you too will have more intimacy in the couple.
Whichever option you choose, don't forget that as your baby grows, you will get used to not waking up so often overnight, which will mean a quieter sleep for each of you.
