Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


If a child has slept with an adult since infancy, at which age should they begin sleeping alone? Could emotional or developmental problems arise if a child continues to sleep with an adult regularly after the age of five?
    
The jury is really out on the question of children under 5 years old sleeping with parents. Those who believe that a child sleeping with an adult before the age of 5 creates problems are firm in their opinion and can cite research to support their position; and those who believe that it doesn't matter if a child sleeps with an adult before the age of 5 are also firm in their opinion and can cite research to support their position as well.

After the age of 5 we believe the predominant thinking holds to having children sleep in a bed alone, and only very rarely, and for a good reason, sleep with an adult. Emotional problems could arise and our opinion is to have the child sleep independently from as young an age as possible. If the child is 5 years old the time for independent sleeping is now.
