Getting sleep with a little one can be tough. You may have thought you knew what sleep deprivation was before, but once baby arrives, there will be times you would almost sell your soul for a few hours of rest. The good great news is, it does get better. Until then, Little Roseberry is here to share some facts, tips and even one of our own Roseberry products to help you and yours get a better night's rest.
Fact: Babies have shorter sleep cycles than you do. Adult sleep cycles (going from light to deep sleep, and then back to light sleep) lasts an average of 90 minutes. Infant sleep cycles are shorter, lasting 50 to 60 minutes.
Fact: Sleep helps your baby develop. Sleep has a direct link to infants’ development and growth.
Fact: Don’t try to keep your baby up to make him sleep at nighttime. A baby who is well-rested will go to sleep more easily and sleep better at night than a baby who isn’t.
Fact: Give your baby plenty of light in the daytime, and keep it dimmer in the evening. This will later help regulate the production of melatonin, the sleep inducing hormone naturally released by our bodies.
•Get into the routine. Thirty minutes to an hour before bedtime, start a soothing ritual that may include giving a bath and reading a story or two.
•Consider putting your baby in their crib or co-sleeper while awake. Babies and toddlers wake up to six times a night, and if they are used to you rocking them, they may cry. This will get little one used to soothing themselves to sleep.
•Swaddle for the first three months. (Or until baby can roll over on their own) Research shows that infants who are swaddled wake up less and sleep longer than other babies.
• If your baby seems sensitive to household sounds, try running a white-noise machine or a fan in her room. These noises remind them of when they were in utero, and thus can be very calming.
•Let the sun in. Expose your baby to about 30 minutes of light each morning. Light suppresses the release of the sleep hormone melatonin. This will help set an internal clock and it will be easier for baby to fall asleep at night.
