We've had such a wonderful response from Bub Hub mums on the below survey. However, we'd love some more responses particularly from any mums who are co-sleeping not by choice but in response to your child's night time waking/protests. See below for more details on the research and if you have any interest or stories to tell we'd love to hear from you.
Whether or not to co-sleep with your child in the bed or use controlled crying strategies to help him/her sleep can be contentious in Western society. Tell us what you really think about different sleep arrangements (both solitary and/or co-sleeping) and sleep strategies (e.g. controlled crying). We want to hear about your experiences.
Participation involves completing an anonymous on-line survey, which will take up to 30 minutes to complete. The survey and more information can be found at the following address:
Your participation may help us better understand parents social and emotional experiences of different sleep arrangements and strategies, and assist other parents having sleep difficulties with their children.
We would be most grateful for your assistance.
