Why were baby rooms called nurseries, and why did children stay in them for so long, was it mainly and England thing. In the movie peter pan, wendy looks to be about 10 or so and still in the nursery with her 2 brothers. Why were they all still in a nursery, only one was a baby. And many other books and stories had children in a nursery until a later age. And weren't they afraid that having a baby with other children, would wake the other children, or did the babies no really go in until they were bigger. Did the babies start in mom and dads room and move to the nursery. I guess i'm just a little confused, and curious for some answers. My mom has no clue, and i have no grandparents to ask, so maybe someone else might have an answer or a relative with an answer for me.
