Rock-a-bye Baby, Mama’s Here,Papa is Sleeping
Night-time co-parenting is in the news.
Recent research says infants have the uncanny knack of sensing parental moods
when they deem it’s time to wake them up in the dead of night. Parental team
work is crucial to promoting the healthy development of a baby. But a strong
mother can be a factor for disrupting a healthy parenting relationship than the
father who would rather chose to roll on his side and let the baby croon itself
to comfort. The study said mothers were more alert and attentive than fathers
and this in turn impelled women to have stronger perceptions about joint parenting
and the evident indifference of their partners affected the quality of their
parenting relationships which infants could sense.
