Sleep up to three years in a cot — the key rash for parents and children.
To such conclusion came researchers from Children’s hospital of Philadelphia after studying the results of surveys from five countries, writes Daily Mail.
The scientists collected data 1 983 parents with toddlers aged 18 to 36 months living in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Britain and the United States of America.
Data were provided by carers using the smartphone app from Johnson, which allows you to monitor the quality of sleep.
The research team found that the level of sleep decreased continuously with age: 63 % of babies slept in the crib in age from 18 to 24 months, compared with 34% in a crib at the age of 24 to 30 months, and 13 % from 30 to 36 months.
Conventional crib has several advantages: the children go to bed early without resistance, fall asleep early, Wake up less often during the night, sleep lasts much longer.
In future studies, the research group hopes to use the same app to explore why parents decide to transfer children to sleep in adult beds, what motivates them.
In some cases, parents are just waiting for a second baby, so move the first child to adult bed in the future to use it in place of sleep.
Others begin the transition because their kid learned to climb out of the crib or seems physically too big to continue to sleep in it.
According to pediatricians, children love small spaces because they feel safe and comfortable.
Other researchers interested in the development of a Protocol that will help families make the transition from cot to bed, because the delay change of a place of sleep leads to problems that did not exist before.
Recall how dangerous a bad dream for babies.
