– If they sleep separately, it is more difficult to connect to the mother and child, which is harmful to the developing brain and can lead to behavioral problems in recent years, says pediatrician Dr. Nils Bergman, of the University of Cape Town.
Observation of 16 newborn babies, Berg found that those who are put to sleep in separate beds, slept worse than babies who sleep with their mothers. It has been established that babies who slept separately were younger than three times larger than the stress of babies slept with their mothers.
– Changes in the brain that occur due to the release of stress hormones can prevent the creation of quality relationships later in life and lead to different behavioral problems, she says Bergman
Some studies have linked sleep common with an increased risk of cot death, but Bergman says that babies suffocate or die during sleep is not because the mother was with them. It occurs because of other things, toxic smoke, cigarettes, alcohol, big pillows and dangerous toys.
National Childbirth Trust British organization supports the common dream if parents do not smoke, do not drink, do not use drugs and are not overly tired or sick.
On the other hand, some experts believe that the safest place for baby to sleep place is your bed, was placed in the parents’ room.
