    Babies that sleep in the cold...

    BBC News - The babies who nap in sub-zero temperatures


    The baby is electronically monitored, as is the outside temperature... -10C

    Would you put your baby or toddler outside in the freezing cold for their lunchtime nap? Most Nordic parents wouldn't give it a second thought. For them it's part of their daily routine.

    Daytime temperatures this winter in Stockholm have regularly dropped to -5C (23F) but it's still common to see children left outside by their parents for a sleep in the pram.

    Wander through the snowy city and you'll see buggies lined up outside coffee shops while parents sip on lattes inside.

    And if you are visiting friends and your child needs a nap, you may be offered the garden or balcony instead of a bedroom.

    "I think it's good for them to be in the fresh air as soon as possible," says Lisa Mardon, a mother-of-three from Stockholm, who works for a food distribution company.

    "Especially in the winter when there's lots of diseases going around... the kids seem healthier."

    Her children have been sleeping outside since they were born.

    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team
