Why does a baby need a cradle?

During the period of waiting for the baby, the parents add to the hassle of acquiring everything the little man needs. To think over and equip a sleeping place for a baby is one of the main concerns.

The market for baby products is so wide that moms and dads are lost in the choice. What is better to buy for a baby: a cradle or a regular crib? What is a cradle – a beautiful whim of mothers or a modern, comfortable item in a children’s room? Let’s understand the advantages and disadvantages of the cradle and how justified its purchase is.

Pros and cons of the cradle

A cradle for newborns offers many benefits. But there are also disadvantages that are important to consider when choosing the first bed for a child. The convenience of the products primarily lies in the fact that there is less space in the cradle for a newly born baby. It feels more secure than a large crib.

The cradle bed itself takes up less space, it is mobile, it can be transported and carried without disturbing the child. It is equipped with casters, which facilitate the movement of furniture, and allows children to be rocked. Some model designs of such cradles provide for the possibility of motion sickness in different planes. Sometimes the product provides for an automatic motion sickness mode.

A modern baby cradle may include additional options, for example, the ability to install a mobile with toys, connect lighting.

The disadvantage of the product can be considered a limited operational period, which is associated with the dimensions of the swing cradle. This is due to the fact that after six months, the child may simply not fit into the cradle, but also the sides of the furniture are low enough, which creates a danger when children begin to sit down and crawl.

Why take a baby in your arms

Why take a baby in your arms A child who is accustomed to being 9 months in a cozy cradle-womb becomes scared from the spaces around him. After all, a newborn is so small compared to the outside world. Developing inside the woman, the baby constantly heard the beating of her heart, felt the warmth of the body. After birth, not yet knowing how to distinguish objects, the little one can easily identify the mother by the smell and biological fluids emanating from her.

This does not mean that the toddler should be worn from morning to night. But until he adapts to the world around him, they take him on handles not only for feeding. Doctors call the first months “wearing out”. The baby still lacks motor skills, visual function is imperfect, and the thermoregulation system is poorly developed. All this negatively affects adaptation. Being in close proximity to the mother, the baby calms down, the transition to the new developmental conditions occurs smoothly, without stress.

The skin-to-skin communication method is especially important for premature babies. With constant contact with the mother, the baby’s temperature stabilizes, the blood sugar level normalizes, and the metabolism improves. The closer the mother is, the better is the physical and mental development of the baby.

For the first 90 days of life, the baby cries not only because he is hungry or sick – he is afraid to lose contact with his mother. Through communication with her, trust in the world is being established. If during this period a woman ignores the crying of the child and rarely picks it up, the baby develops anxiety. A constant feeling of discomfort in the future develops into a feeling of uselessness.
