Co-sleeping, also called co-sleeping, prolonged breastfeeding or wearing a sling are very popular with young parents. These practices, for some considered dangerous (co-sleeping for example) are nevertheless controversial. We know it has been scrutinized with recognized experts.

Sleeping newborns in their parents’ bed was common in France until the XNUMXth century and remains a tradition in some countries, primarily Japan. With us, what is now called co-sleeping or co-sleeping is still exotic and controversial, but appeals to many young parents. 

sild: Before he does his nights, having your baby nearby allows you to feed or reassure him, if only by his breathing, without having to get up. Many mothers explain that they often wake up a few moments before their baby, without going through the “crying” box.

The lessers: The French Pediatric Society (SFP) unreservedly bans this practice because of the risk of sudden death or crushing. It is based on various studies, the latest of which shows a risk multiplied by five of sudden infant death (SIDS) for babies under 3 months sleeping in the parental bed. In question, the Western sleeping method: duvets, pillows, soft and high mattresses have nothing to do with the tatami mats and mats used in countries where co-sleeping is usual. In addition, the risk of accidents increases even more if one of the parents smokes, has drunk alcohol or takes drugs that act on alertness. In the opinion of many psychologists, a child’s place is not in his parents’ bed at night.

meie arvates: The “benefits” of proximity linked to a co-sleeping are the same as with a cradle next to or attached to the parental bed. So why take the risk of a dramatic accident? The Institute for Public Health Surveillance (InVS) also recommends “sleeping separately but close to the first six months of life, the risk of SIDS being reduced when the child sleeps in the same room as his mother. “

Long-term breastfeeding

In France, mothers breastfeeding beyond maternity leave are in the minority, and those who lead a really prolonged breastfeeding, that is to say continued after 6 months, until the child is 2, 3, or even 4 years old. , are an exception. Yet more than two-thirds of infants are breastfed in the maternity hospital (almost twice as many as in 1972). A month later, they are only half, and a third after three months. Those who continue breastfeeding beyond six months are therefore few in number. The World Health Organization advocates continuing breastfeeding at the time of diversification. In France prolonged breastfeeding often arouses strong reactions.

sild: Health professionals are unanimous: when breastfeeding is possible, it is most beneficial for the baby. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, then supplemented by dietary diversification, and underlines its protective role against common diseases, allergies and certain cancers for the mother. In addition to these medical qualities, there is a positive reinforcement of the mother-child relationship, whether breastfeeding is exclusive or not. Finally, extended beyond the first age, mothers observe a good autonomy of their child, who thanks to this relationship have confidence in themselves.

The lessers: Prolonged breastfeeding implies longer maternal availability, often complicated by returning to work. Although it is not carried out in the same way with a one-year-old child, for whom a few daily feeds are sufficient, as with a newborn who is breastfed on demand. It must be accompanied by a strict lifestyle: no alcohol or tobacco, because they pass, like viruses and drugs, in milk. Finally, you have to feel able to face the gaze of those around you, not used to seeing a child at the breast after the first age.

meie arvates: To guarantee “the best” for her child, it is essential that the mother feels good and does not put pressure on herself. It is up to her to set the moment of weaning, progressive and without feeling guilty.

Carrying in a sling

Carrying a baby close to you, tied in a fabric? An ancestral mode of transport widespread all over the world… Except in the West, where strollers and prams have replaced it. Today, mei tai, sling and other woven scarves are back.

sild: Beyond the practical aspect, undeniable when the child is light, babywearing is also an element of mothering in its own right. It cradles the baby and allows him to “digest” external stimuli at his own pace, thanks to the benevolent filter of his carrier parent. Carried as straight as possible, it facilitates digestion.

The lessers: Getting into a portage involving knotting techniques requires serious learning (there are workshops) in order to avoid any fall of the child. Some precautions must be taken: the infant must be firmly held, the face clear enough for it to breathe well.Finally, the prone carry can be impossible for mothers who have undergone a cesarean section.

meie arvates: Carrying your little one against you, it’s nice, good for him and for you. However, it is not always easy to properly tie a scarf. Better then adopt a physiological baby carrier, practical for trips in town.
