Bedsharing -- With a Partner

Wednesday, September 20, 2006
Here's another fascinating article on sleep -- this one on sharing your bed with a partner. There's talk about the potentially life-saving benefits of sharing your bed with your partner (something that's likely to get people talking infant sleep again, since both sides of the bedsharing debate have historically cited evidence on this point) as well as laments about snoring. The key message is that it's less lonely sleeping with someone else -- something no one would debate. That's why many couples choose to sleep together even if it means getting less sleep because one or both of them can outsnore Fido, who is also snoring away at the foot of the bed. (And, just in case you're wondering, research has shown that dog and cat owners tend to be more sleep deprived than other people. Fido may be adorable, but he's not helping you rack up your zzzzs.)
