REVIEW Sleeping with Your Baby: A Parent’s Guide to Cosleeping

1If you’ve ever wondered to yourself how it’s possible that babies around the world have survived billions of years of history sleeping with their parents when it’s supposedly so dangerous, then this book is defiantly for you! If your family and friends are always telling you your wrong, your doing it wrong or it’s dangerous, this book is for you! Personally I highly recommend co-sleeping. I didn’t realize how healthy it is for your child’s mental development until I came home from the hospital with my very first child! Your baby needs and craves that closeness and requires those oh so important snuggles because it helps reduce night time anxiety and night terrors in young babies & children resulting in a confident child. It actually keeps them relaxed, calm and comforted. That’s why when your try to put your infant down after they have fallen asleep in your arms they tend to wake up immediately. When they are very young they’re extremely aware of their surroundings. It’s simple nature because mom is their life line for food, warmth, and meeting their needs. This idea of putting your infant down in a beautifully decorated nursery across or down the hall from you is actually a new concept that started in the last 100 years or so. If you think about it you’ll notice that it’s natural to co-sleep and bed share with your baby. Just abot every animal you can think of sleeps with their young. Think about a dog that just had a litter of puppies or a lion, bear, monkey, etc. They all sleep with their young. Why is that? If you are stumbling through the early days of parenting wondering why your baby screams bloody murder every time you lay him in his crib, think about why that is. My little Helena certainly told me right away! This book is an incredibly easy read and isn’t overly long and hard to read. The author offers many different options and leaves it to each family to decide what works best for them. For each option, he also offers information about when it would not be safe. Also, Dr. McKenna goes on to explain, how the Juvenile Products Commission is actually lobbyists for the crib-makers (sounds like a few mixed interest there right). Dr. McKenna’s credentials are impeccable. He also has some really great information about SIDS. Did you know that when a baby sleeps in their own crib they are more likely to go into what’s called stage 3 and 4 sleep meaning they’re in a much deeper sleep and the baby who sleeps in the bed with their parents go into a stage 1 or 2 sleep which reduces the chances of SIDS by about 50%!!! The babies that are in a deeper sleep (stage 3 or 4) have a much harder time waking themselves up resulting in SIDS. This is especially true for breastfeeding babies who are co-sleeping/bed sharing and nursing during the night. It’s the same theory as babies sleeping with a pacifier.

Basically this book explains the “proper” way to bed share!

That one added feature that saved the lives of so many children

img_3975
Pretty much everyone has heard of ballpoint pens. But hardly anyone has put much thought into why the cap is designed the way it is, am I right?
The BIC company unveiled this design to the world in 1991 which remained completely unnoticed by the majority of people! What was changed? Well, there is now a small hole in the top of the cap of the extremely popular Cristal Pen. Many people didn’t even notice the innovation.

Yet, the decision to switch this design has saved the lives of large numbers of toddlers & small children (including a few adults). More than a hundred children in fact. We all know how much small children love putting just about everything they touch or pick up in their mouths and no matter how hard we try to keep them safe, we as parents are human and we do miss things or somehow our children manage to outsmart us no matter how hard we try with our baby proofing efforts.

A pen cap can very easily get lodged in the windpipe of a child. If such an awful situations were to arise, that little hole in the cap helps get just enough oxygen to the child providing valuable time for the paramedics to rush your little one to the emergency room.
