Waar ‘n baba of peuter behoort te slaap, is ‘n onderwerp wat gewoonlik sterk menings ontlok omdat dit ‘n gesin se privaatruimte betref, sê slaapkonsultant, Petro Thamm.

 

Behoort ‘n baba tussen mamma en pappa te slaap of in sy eie bedjie? En as dit wel laasgenoemde is, op watter stadium behoort die skuif te gebeur? Sy verduidelik ook hoekom ‘n kind, anders as wat die meeste ouers dink, vir so lank moontlik in sy bababedjie behoort te slaap voordat die skuif na.

Wat moet jy alles by die bedtoegaanroetine insluit en wat moet jy eerder uitlos? Sy het ook raad vir vakansietye, wat, lekker soos dit is, selfs ‘n rustige slaper se gevestigde roetine op sy kop kan keer.
