GenYChron Ep. 0017 – Ethnopediatrics, co-sleeping and Jólabókaflóðið

Show summary

We’re back! After our three-month podcasting hiatus we dive into some parent-friendly topics ranging from child-rearing practices in different cultures, the prevalence of bed sharing outside North America and research surrounding the risks and rewards of co-sleeping. Also, with Christmas just 37 days away, we talk about our plan to adopt a traditional Icelandic gift-giving practice called “Jólabókaflóðið”.
