What is a co sleeper?
A co-sleeper is a crib that you can use as a separate crib, but also as a bedside bed. You then attach the co-sleeper to your own bed with safety straps. There is an upright side between the parental bed and the co-sleeper, which can be lowered so that you can easily reach your baby. That makes it ideal for feeding your baby at night. The co-sleeper is a beautiful and practical solution to have your baby close to you during the first months, while your baby is safely in his or her own bed.
Co-sleeping can therefore make a positive contribution to your baby's brain development. It is also ideal if you have just given birth, since as a mother you do not always have to get out of bed to feed or comfort your baby. In addition to these advantages, there are other advantages of the co-sleeper:
- It promotes bonding between mother and child.
- Attachment contributes to emotional, social and cognitive development of the brain.
- It ensures that your baby is less tearful.
- Babies who sleep alone in a room are twice as likely to die from SIDS than children who sleep with their parents.
- Mother and child fall asleep faster.
- It helps newborn babies regulate their breathing and heart rate.
- Your baby recognizes your scent, which makes him or her feel safe .
