What You Didn't Know About Your Babies Sleep.
Every 50-60 minutes, babies transition from light sleep (REM) to profound sleep (NREM). During the REM stage, babies frequently wake up; some are able to fall back asleep on their own, while others require assistance.
The baby is still in the REM stage if his eyes flutter, his body flexes, and his respiration is erratic. To raise the odds of your baby not waking up when you put him down, make sure he is sound asleep.
Light Sleep and it's significance:
The amount of light sleep that babies get is significant. For example, it permits hunger to wake up a baby in the first few months and demand the nourishment she requires.
Sleeping patterns are pointless?:
Yes, It's pointless to try to help your kid sleep better at night by depriving him of sleep during the day; a well-rested baby will fall asleep more quickly and sleep better at night than one who isn't.
Show them the difference between day and night to help sleep:
Allowing your kid to see lots of daylight and avoiding bright lights at night will aid in his or her ability to discern between day and night. Later on, it will aid in the regulation of melatonin production, the sleep-inducing hormone that our bodies naturally produce.
