In India, parents frequently share a bed with their kids until they are between 14 and 15 years old. There are several causes, ranging from parents’ inability to separate themselves from their kids to a lack of space and high electric expenditures. Having said that, it is crucial for parents to consider the requirements of their kids. A developing youngster must become accustomed to living independently in order to lay the groundwork for independence.
Since it enables them to watch after their newborns at night, many parents also decide to sleep with their kids. Experts also recommend that parents give their children their own bedroom as early as possible. How do you know when it’s time to give your kid a place of their own?
Babies who are less than three months old can snooze in a cradle or with their parents. Because of this, it is simple for parents to respond in an emergency. Baby up to six months old should spend the night in a crib. When the infant reaches the age of seven months, another room should be set up. When the infant starts to wail in the middle of the night, you might have to make numerous visits to that room, but in a few years, the baby will need it more than anything.
While the baby should have a room by month 7, it’s also crucial to attend to their requirements because switching between rooms can sometimes make it difficult to hear your baby cry. Install a camera that is directly connected to your phone in your baby’s room if you need to.
Toddler separation anxiety is a common occurrence. Expecting your child to suddenly accept sleeping in their room by themselves is unrealistic. Take it slow. You can wait till they are asleep and sit in their bed. Later, switch to a chair while they are sleeping. Even better, give them a little window of time—say, 15 to 20 minutes—to sleep on your bed before making them go to bed in their room.
