Re: The babies who nap in sub-zero temps

I love it!

I love seeing how other cultures do things - and I bet it was a great idea. I make our house as cold as I can to sleep at night (I sleep with a sheet, hubby has to have 3 blankets and a sheet up to his chin).

now I really won't feel bad keeping baby at the park and such when I need to get DD out of the house

Re: The babies who nap in sub-zero temps

There was an article a couple of years ago about a Swedish model in NYC, who left her baby outside in the pram while she went into a coffee shop. The police took the child away, and there was this insane moment of cultural confusion where the police/American media were like "WHO LEAVES THEIR CHILD OUTSIDE WHERE ANYONE COULD KIDNAP THEM?!" and the model and the Swedes went "WHO LIVES IN A SOCIETY WHERE SOMEONE WOULD KIDNAP A BABY?!" .

that's awesome

If anyone hasn't seen the movie 'Babies', I highly highly recommend it.
No words.. well.. no dialogue. Just 4 babies being born in Africa, Mongolia, Japan and San Francisco and how things are different.

I get completely fascinated watching them parent the African and Mongolian children. Japan is very much like America in the film.

Re: The babies who nap in sub-zero temps

Well I guess if I lived in Sweden I'd do it too!
I always left the kids asleep in the stroller outside if they fell asleep when we were out walking. I don't want to bring them inside because they'll be overdressed for the house and wake up.

My grandmother and aunt in England all suggested putting dd1 outside for her naps whenever I visited.

that I do find odd though, but I grew up with kids being snatched in the news often enough to have it in my mind that people DO those things

Maybe this explains why my kids like the bedroom practically arctic. I would definitely let them sleep outside. Leaving them in a stroller while I'm inside may be stretching my comfort zone a bit though.

I looked for the news story of the model, found the reporter asking questions about the "outside naps"

interesting

Re: The babies who nap in sub-zero temps

I sleep better when there is a little chill in the air and the lil princess seems to, too... I just couldn't leave her outside alone... I, also, grew up hearing about kids getting snatched... It has gotten a lot worse nowadays than when I was a child. I just don't trust others enough to leave my precious cargo alone.

Absolutely fascinating! If my DS2 would nap better sleeping outside in a stroller, I would absolutely do it. Maybe I should try it this weekend.

We sleep best with the window cracked even in dead of winter and so that's how our littles sleep best so it doesn't surprise me.
