  1. Though the idea of letting infants sleep outdoors is a bit weird for those of use who live in the city, this is actually healthy since the air outside is natural and soothing for the baby. I think it promotes good blood circulation and having a good dose of natural air.

  2. This study provides a window on a culturally bound childcare practice in northern Finland. Culture can be viewed as a broad and    comprehensive way of knowing, explaining and predicting people’s ways of life over time and in different geographic locations (25)

  3. I agree with the conclusion that objective measurements and an extensive study about parents’ experiences are needed before guidelines for allowing children to sleep outdoors in the winter can be updated.
