The recent science behind co-sleeping has proven that it fosters healthier children and promotes family bonding. Why then is there so much contention surrounding it?
Co-sleeping is the shared sleeping arrangement between parents and their child. Here in Asia, co-sleeping is widely considered to be the norm, thanks in part to limited living space in densely populated cities like Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore. A 2012 study by National University Hospital (NUH), found that 80.9% of families in Singapore co-slept.
However, this is an entirely different story in the West, where co-sleeping remains a controversial issue, and not for no reason. While some believe that sleep-sharing is a wonderful way to bond with your children, others fear it makes them too dependent and needy. Such reservations are common for those against sleep-sharing. These fears, however, have been debunked by experts who believe that co-sleeping is extremely beneficial to children.
