why do babies sleep better next to their parents instead in their crib? I had a hard time the past few weeks keeping my baby asleep at night... hes 11 months ... he used to be able to soothe himself back to sleep... but i tested to see if he would sleep better next to me because he was only sleeping from 11pm-5am and last night he went to bed with me at 11pm and he is still sleeping(8am) but I put him back in his crib a hour ago...Answer Question

Human babies have always breastfed, slept next to their mothers, and woke at night to make sure they were still next to their mothers and to nurse. They still do in most of the world. It's normal for babies to do this until they are 3 or older, it's hardwired in their brains. You may want to read some of the research done by anthropologist Katherine Dettwyler.
