Catalyst( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By sleeping next to its mother an infant receives warmth, emotional reassurance, and breast milk - in just the forms and quantities intended by nature. In Western societies the well established practice of parents and infants sleeping together is thought of as strange and unhealthy. Most parents have been led to believe that co-sleeping will make the infant too emotionally dependent and increase the risk of accidental death by suffocation. However Baby sleep Expert Dr James Mckenna says that the practice of mothers and infants sleeping apart is a 'mismatch' of cultural norms and infant biology. Maryanne Demasi explores current attitudes to sleeping with baby and the uncomfortable subject of 'controlled crying'
