care for the newborn : SWEET DREAMS TO YOUR BABY
All babies respond differently to sleep in a separate bed — some with no problems sleeping in it from day one, but others completely ignore it.
If the child wants to sleep with mom and refuses to sleep alone — it means that he really needs close contact with parents. Maybe the kid lacks daily communication with the mother, including tactile (hugs, pats, kisses), and he seeks to fill this gap at night.
From the point of view of psychology, there is nothing harmful that baby sleeps with mother at night. Much more dangerous to the psyche of the child if the parents do not respond to his natural need for contact, including physical and emotional.
Many moms confuse the prejudices that "the child will get used to it and don't want to sleep alone". Saw anyone adult who sleeps exclusively with mom?! Over time, all children safely wean from co-sleeping with their parents — someone earlier, someone later. It is important not to force the baby to start to wean him then, when he's really ready for it.
You can remove the front wall of the cot and move up closely to her to the bed adults — then the baby will gradually get used to it, at the same time having the opportunity, if necessary, move closer to mom.
In no event it is impossible to follow the tips like "leave it in the crib — they'll scream and go to sleep"! First, the screaming and wailing will further stimulate the nervous system of the child, and if he falls asleep, then from stress. Secondly, ignoring the crying baby, we reject his request for help, and it is very dangerous for the development of a balanced, prosperous personality in the future. In the end, co-sleeping is often much easier for the parents, especially if the baby is breastfed. Therefore, taking into account all the positive aspects of this question, first we need to listen to their maternal instincts.
