Sleeping Arrangements for Toddlers
In this interview for The Life Scientific, Dr Susannah Maidment, Curator of dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum, describes sleeping arrangements while doing fieldwork with a young child:
My daughter was a terrible sleeper. […] The only place that she would sleep would basically be lying on me. I'd have to lie on my back, she would lie on my chest, and would eventually go to sleep; and I'd kind of manage to wiggle her off and get her next to me, and then of course she'd wake up, and she'd have to come back and lie on me again. So I was getting very little sleep and then going out into the field and doing these exhausting, long days.
