When a baby cries at night the first impulse of every parent is to pick him up and consololarle. Error! A study by experts in Developmental Psychology collected it is best to leave the baby alone to calm down and sleep overcomes him.
For research, Marsha Weinraub, professor of psychology at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and his team measured the patterns of sleep and wakefulness during the night a group of 1,200 children between six and 36 months old. They asked parents phonecalls times your baby woke to meet the 6, 15, 26 and 36 months. The results showed that babies can be divided into two groups: the sleepers and transient sleepers.
It was found that when they turn 6 months, 66% of the sleeping babies do not wake during the night or waking only once a week, and then followed a path similar to grow.
But 33% of transient sleeping babies, when they turn 6 months awoke seven nights a week, 15 months a weekly two nights and one night woke up when they turned 24 months.
Researchers materialized that most babies wake were male and many were being breastfed. In addition, results showed that transient sleepers had higher levels of temperamental difficulty.
According to Dr. Weinraub, sleep problems early in life may have several explanations. One is that perhaps there are genetic or biological factors, as reflected in a difficult temperament, which have an impact on trouble sleeping. And the other is because many babies have not learned for themselves how to fall asleep, especially when they are breastfed.
But the study also reflects that babies sleep can affect, for example, maternal depression.
After learning this study, and as recorded by BBC World, although further research is needed, the recommendation would be that parents establish a thorough routine and carefully prepared to help the baby to calm himself. The psychologist Marsha Weinraub adds that "the best advice is to place babies on their bed at a regular time every night, let them fall asleep by themselves and resist the urge to respond immediately to their cries".
