Recognizing Your Baby’s Sleep Patterns

It’s true, most parents look forward to is the day (or night) their newborn starts sleeping through the night.

You do not have to go through endless night after night without sleep however, even with a newborn.

Baby’s follow a certain sleep pattern, so if you get to know these patterns you will start sleeping more soundly and will have a chance to get some sleep!

Baby’s don’t sleep at the same time as adults do. They actually sleep very unsoundly. Their sleep is full of interruptions because their sleep cycles are not yet fully developed, so they wake more often during the night.

Generally grown adults spend about five hours in a deep sleep every night. This is the restful phase of sleep you need to feel fresh and new in the morning. Usually another 2 hours are spent in light sleep.

Be a Good Teacher for Your Baby

Babies will learn by exploring things around them. You’ll need to show your baby how to listen to, look at, touch or smell something new or different. Hold your baby so they can see things. Help the baby hold objects like it’s socks or a rattle. As the baby grows, give it safe objects to feel, shake or put in their mouth.

· Be your baby’s teacher. It will see how you react to things. When you get excited about a toy or object, it’ll get excited too. As it grows, show it how things work—for example, how doors open and close. Talk about what you are doing. Here is an example, “I’m putting food into the pot to cook it.”

· When a baby is learning something new, it helps to show it again and again. With your support and help, this can be fun, and your baby will like trying new things.

· Protect your baby from disapproval, teasing or punishment. A baby doesn’t understand right from wrong. They don’t know what things are dangerous for them to do. Watch to keep it safe. Remove it from situations where it can be hurt or injured.

· Talk and sing to your baby. Even before it is able to speak, this helps them develop language skills. Babies learn best when you talk to them.

· Read to your baby from the early months of their life and continue this habit as it grows.
