OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that mother-infant bed sharing, compared to solitary sleeping, would be associated with higher infant heart rates. The objective was to compare infant heart rates between the 2 environments and, secondarily, to test for relationships between heart rate and other, previously reported, differences in the same infants. DESIGN Heart rate was measured in 15 infants over a bed-sharing night and a solitary-sleeping night. Eight of the 15 infants routinely bed shared with… Expand
Evolutionary perspectives on mother-infant sleep proximity and breastfeeding in a laboratory setting.
TLDR
Given the widely known risks associated with little or no breastfeeding, the demonstrated mutually regulatory relationship between bedsharing and breastfeeding should be considered in future studies evaluating determinants of breastfeeding outcomes. Expand
The influence of bed-sharing on infant physiology, breastfeeding and behaviour: A systematic review.
TLDR
Many differences between bed-sharing and cot-sleeping are context-specific, and dependent on the subjective view of the parents and their cultural values, it is concluded. Expand
Heart rate variability responses of a preterm infant to kangaroo care.
TLDR
Overall, kangaroo care produced changes in heart rate variability that illustrate decreasing stress, and the wide fluctuations in the parasympathetic component ofHeart rate variability suggest immaturity of the sympathovagal response. Expand
Kangaroo Care modifies preterm infant heart rate variability in response to heel stick pain: pilot study.
TLDR
Infants experienced better balance in response in KC than IC condition as shown by more autonomic stability during heel stick, suggesting Kangaroo Care may be helpful in mediating physiologic response to painful procedures in preterm infants. Expand
Experimental manipulation of maternal proximity during short sequences of sleep and infant calming response.
TLDR
Infants who regularly co-slept with their mothers had the highest IBI, indicating greater physiological calming and self-regulation across all sleeping arrangement conditions (CS, BAL, SS), followed by infants who regularly slept in the BAL sleeping arrangement from their mothers. Expand
The Ontogeny of Diurnal Rhythmicity in Bed-Sharing and Solitary-Sleeping Infants: A Preliminary Report.
The purpose of the current study was to investigate the development of sleep–wake and melatonin diurnal rhythms over the first 3 months of life, and the potential effect of bed-sharing on theirExpand
Physiological stability in an indigenous sleep device: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
This indigenous sleep device is at least as safe as the currently recommended bassinet, which supports its use as a sleep environment that offers an alternative way of bed-sharing. Expand
Hypoxic and Hypercapnic Events in Young Infants During Bed-sharing
TLDR
BS infants experienced more oxygen desaturations preceded by central apnea, partly related to the warmer micro environment during BS, as well as eighty episodes of rebreathing, almost all preceded by head covering. Expand
Why babies should never sleep alone: a review of the co-sleeping controversy in relation to SIDS, bedsharing and breast feeding.
TLDR
It is hoped that the studies and data described in this paper, which show that co-sleeping at least in the form of roomsharing especially with an actively breast feeding mother saves lives, is a powerful reason why the simplistic, scientifically inaccurate and misleading statement 'never sleep with your baby' needs to be rescinded.

The relationship between co-sleeping and self-regulation in early childhood
Co-sleeping has been considered as a dangerous sleeping practice for infants by some parents and pediatricians. However, past research found that co-sleeping in early childhood has a positiveExpand

Bedsharing promotes breastfeeding.
TLDR
It is suggested that, by increasing breastfeeding, bedsharing might be protective against SIDS, at least in some contexts, and maternal reproductive physiology could be impacted because nursing frequency affects ovulation. Expand
Increased infant axillary temperatures in non-REM sleep during mother-infant bed-sharing.
  • C. Richard
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Early human development
  • 1999
TLDR
Bed-sharing was associated with a significantly increased mean axillary temperature compared to solitary sleeping in both routine bed sharers and routine solitary sleepers, and this increase was expressed only in non-REM sleep, with no differences during REM sleep or waking. Expand
Infant arousals during mother-infant bed sharing: implications for infant sleep and sudden infant death syndrome research.
TLDR
It is speculated that the observed changes in stage 3-4 sleep and arousals associated with bed sharing might be protective to infants at risk for SIDS because of a hypothesized arousal deficit. Expand
Sleeping position, orientation, and proximity in bedsharing infants and mothers.
TLDR
It is concluded that bedsharing minimizes the use of the prone infant sleeping position, probably in part to facilitate breast feeding, and may protect some infants from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Expand
Apnea and periodic breathing in bed-sharing and solitary sleeping infants.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the bed-sharing environment can have a significant impact on respiratory control in the infant and evidence is presented to suggest that routine bed sharing may result in subtle neurophysiological and/or developmental differences in infants. Expand
Maternal proximity and infant CO2 environment during bedsharing and possible implications for SIDS research.
TLDR
Assessing routinely bedsharing mothers and infants, their relative sleeping positions and the potential for sleeping in close face-to face proximity and for infant exposure to increased environmental CO2 produced by maternal respiration concludes that during bedsharing there is potential for a high degree of face- to-face orientation and close proximity.

Relations between the development of patterns of sleeping heart rate and body temperature in infants
TLDR
Overnight patterns of rectal temperature and heart rate were recorded from 119 normal infants at weekly intervals from 7 to about 16 weeks of age, with girls showing a more abrupt and greater change in heart rate at the time of development of the adult-like body temperature pattern. Expand
Higher rectal temperatures in co-sleeping infants.
TLDR
The co-sleeping infants had significantly higher rectal temperatures from two hours after bedtime, when the initial fall in sleeping body temperature was complete, which probably reflects a considerable physiological difference between the two groups. Expand
Infant sleep architecture during bedsharing and possible implications for SIDS.
TLDR
The most important findings revealed by repeated measures analyses of variance were a significant reduction in stage 3/4 sleep and an inverse increase in stage 1/2 sleep on the bedsharing night compared to the solitary night, irrespective of routine sleeping arrangement. Expand
Cardiac and respiratory patterns in normal infants and victims of the sudden infant death syndrome.
TLDR
The results suggest that, as a group, SIDS victims differ physiologically from control infants and that these differences may be especially prominent during particular sleep-waking states. Expand
