Co-sleeping, or keeping infants to sleep in your own bed, has been the theme of strong discussions in many multicultural groups online. Big groups of people arguing the pro’s and con’s of co-sleeping and never reaching a conclusion. Why? Because co-sleeping is a cultural matter and someone coming from a culture, where co-sleeping is out of discussions could never understand someone else who has slept with own parents while infant and think this is the most natural thing ever. I am one of those children that have experienced and enjoyed sleeping ‘in the big bed’ as we used to call the matrimonial bed our parents had in their room. My parents raised four kids and we all have slept with them until age 2. For us, sleeping there meant to be safe, comfortable and close to our parents. We could not image a world different from that and have never discussed about the fact if that was right or wrong. Co-sleeping for us was an axiom and no further arguing could happen about it.

Things changed when I had my own child. At first I acted per inertia and kept my boy in our bed. But, the bigger he became, we started to feel the discomfort of sleeping at the same bed. My baby was a mover and kept kicking us all night long. I recall, we felt so tried as we’re having very busy days with no sleep. So, I started to search more about co-sleeping and this time I was looking for scientific research rather than individual approaches. And, fortunately I found a great article at Los Angeles Times written by two researchers Robert and Sara Levine.
In short, they were saying that recent research have found that co-sleeping is a good thing for both, the baby and the parents. It helped them to better relate to each-other and allowing parents, especially breastfeeding mothers, to feed the child without the risk of waking up the child. Another important point clarified from this research was the fact that co-sleeping babies did not become dependent from their parents and showed no problems during social interactions with other people. I read the article three times, as I was very tired and wanted to be sure of its content. That article came to my attention exactly at the right time to take the decision to keep the baby, but exchange the bed with a bigger one. I was happy for the choice I made. My baby was happier and we felt all the happiness in the world building outstanding memories for our family.
