New Norwegian Research - Bedsharing may impair sleep quality

Nocturnal awakenings are frequent among 6-month-old children, but sharing bed might make things worse.

Uni Research have published findings about bedsharing and how this may reduce infants sleep duration. This can, according to the report, lead to a higher number of awakenings.

 “Bedsharing was an independent and graded predictor of nocturnal awakenings, and short sleep duration, also after controlling for prior sleep”, they point out.

- One third of the infants who experienced nocturnal awakenings at six months age, still had awakenings each night at 18 months of age, says researcher and first author Mari Hysing at Uni Research Health in Bergen, Norway.

- They had shorter total sleep duration during the night, and more frequent awakenings than other children, says Hysing.
