Bed-sharing reduces obesity risk in kids

Bed-sharing reduces obesity risk in kidsThere’s good news for all the parents who opted not to get a separate bed/cot for their little ones as according to a new study which suggests that children who sleep in their parents’ bed have a reduced risk of obesity.  The study from Denmark has found that parents who let their young children climb into bed with them during the night may decrease their child’s risk of obesity.

According to the study, children who never slept in their parents’ bed were three times more vulnerable to be overweight when compared with the children who were sleeping with their parents every night. The researchers said that the findings are contrary to the expectations that obesity is associated with poor quality of sleep i.e., young children who get too little sleep are at a higher risk of becoming obese later in life, whereas the kids who sleep with their parents are waking up in the middle of the night, every night. Also the children who sleep with their parents get a greater sense of security and emotional support which may protect them against obesity. While the children who are not allowed into their parents’ bed at night may feel rejected and lonely and such negative feelings may increase their risk of getting obese.
