Aidez votre bébé à aimer le sommeil
What’s not to love about sleep? If you are a new parent, you may be frustrated and confused about why your new little one doesn’t seem to love sleep as much as you do. One of the biggest surprises new parents often encounter is learning that their baby needs help when it comes to sleeping and more importantly, sleeping well. Shouldn’t they just close their eyes when they are tired? If only it were that easy!
Go with Their Flow – Circadian Rhythms
- it will be easier to get them to sleep (no more bouncing, rocking or driving around trying to quiet them)
- they will get healthy, restorative sleep making them better rested and happier during awake times.
Make the Room Work for You
- Dim the lights when you start your bedtime or nap time routine. This signals to your little one that things are slowing down and that it is time to get ready to rest. Using a light that gives off a soft glow, like the Mini Star Light, can help set the right mood.
- Make sure the room is the right temperature. The ideal temperature for baby and child sleep is between 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit. Adding a Gro Egg to your child’s room will allow you to easily know when the room is too warm or too cold.
- Blackout blinds. Your baby’s room should be dark for both daytime and nighttime sleep. A dark room will help with the release of melatonin, the sleep hormone, which will aid in making your baby nice and drowsy and ready for sleep.
- Get cozy. Swaddling young babies with soft organic swaddling blankets or a cozy sleep sack will help them feel secure while also keeping them safe.
