It is quite a difficult situation for a parent to see a baby crying during late hours. They use a lot many techniques to ensure that they do not cry or try to find out methods, which should be adopted while a baby is crying.
It is now that a study being published in the journal Pediatrics has found that camping out and controlled comforting are some of the ways that are beneficial. The study being taken out by a group of Australian researchers found that these two methods will remain effective for long time.
Lead author Anna Price, who has been working at the Royal Children's Hospital in Victoria, Australia, explained the meaning of camping out and controlled comforting. By the word camping out, study researchers mean that slowly move out of baby’s room and allowing him to learn solo sleep.
However, on the other hand, controlled comforting is a mother’s periodically answer to child’s cries. In order to zero down at the two methods, the study researchers assessed 225 children.
Not only this, they also assessed previous studies being done on the same topic. Price said the main aim to carry out the study was, "We wanted to find out if the benefits were really long lasting and if there were any long term effects”.
