It seems no two styles of parenting that are exactly alike — and that's not a bad thing. In fact, I don't think I know any parents who do even one thing the same way with their children. Sleeping, which seems like it wouldn't have too many variables, can be a hotly debated topic among my group of friends. Some swear by room-sharing and others insist snoozing solo is best. Though everyone is different, there are some reasons your kid gets a better night's sleep when they modify co-sleep. I'm not just talking about random opinions either. There are actually quite a few scientific findings to show how this style of co-sleeping can benefit your little one.
To back it up for a second, if I lost you at "room-sharing," don't worry. It's really not as complex or unusual as you might think. So, what is modified co-sleeping? When you get right down to it, any type of adjusted method of co-sleeping means adapting how parent and baby share the room during sleep, as The University of Notre Dame Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory explained. Whether you keep your baby's bassinet within arm's reach or you're simply sleeping in the same room, check out these solid reasons modified co-sleeping helps your kid sleep more soundly.
