Actress Tia Mowry explains why she sleeps with her kids
When asked to share one of his more non-traditional parenting choices, Tia Mowry spoke openly about her family’s sleeping arrangements.
“My one year old daughter, since she was born she was always in our bed,” she said. “My son was in our bed until he was 4. My husband is okay with that. If he didn’t agree with that, maybe we would (not). .. but he’s so cool with it. “
While Mowry’s husband Cory Hardrict may be happy sleeping together, his mother, Darlene Mowry, is less on board.
“Now my mom on the other hand, she’s like so strict,” Mowry explained. “She said to me, ‘You have to do the crying method. Put your baby in the crib.’ And I’m like, ‘No!’ I don’t want my baby to have any sign of stress. You know? “
An Instagram photo of Hardrict and baby Cairo appears to show a cradle-like attachment to the couple’s bed, which experts say is the safest method of co-sleeping for babies. While bed sharing is common, it’s not really recommended, as experts say it can present a danger to infants and babies.
A policy statement released by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in 2016 stated that if infants should sleep in the same room as their parents for the first year of their life, they should be on a separate surface, such as a cradle or cradle. The release also states that sleeping on a soft surface – such as a sofa, chair, or adult bed – can put babies at risk of choking and increase sleep-related deaths.
