Americans Are In The Minority Here
While we like to feel like we’re in agreement with the world on this issue, apparently, co-sleeping divides us all. The LeVines did some digging and found out that Americans, Brits, Germans, and other parts of Western Europe pretty much all move their infants to their own sleeping space before getting some shut-eye.
But most of the world disagrees with this practice. Many countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America practice co-sleeping. And while these countries have their own infant mortality rates just like the US, the LeVines believe this doesn’t have a whole lot to do with co-sleeping.
