Sleep cycles for babies

Sleeping: the little train of sleep

Sleep is made up of a succession of small trains that we
take on a journey

Each small train corresponds to a sleep cycle and is made up of several wagons which represent the different stages of sleep.
The length of trains (ie the duration of cycles) but also their composition, varies from age to age: for the newborn, each train
is made up of 2 wagons (1 waggon sleep wagon and a sleep wagon while in the adult, each train has 5 (2 wagons of light
slow sleep, 2 deep slow sleep wagons, 1 rapid eye movement sleep wagon).

From birth to 2 months
The trains are short and numerous, and
traveling (sleeping periods
including one or more trains)
spread throughout the 24
hours. Baby begins his journey
by restless sleep and pursues him by
calm sleep. After 50 minutes,
between 2 trains, the baby is everything
near the awakening, in a period of
intermediate sleep (very sleep
very light).

From 2 to 6/9 months
Trains are longer (70 minutes about).
The restless sleep becomes, from 2 months,
rapid eye movement sleep comparable to
that of the adult (dream sleep).
The quiet sleep wagon is
transforms into 2 sleep wagons slow.
The journeys become
gradually longer at night (12
hours on average, 10 to 12 trains).

During the day, trips are shorter and are interspersed with more and more long awakenings.

Agitated sleep (rapid eye movement sleep equivalent of the adult)
The baby’s face is animated by small movements, his breathing is irregular, the activity of
his brain is intense. He may have bodily movements during which he becomes
red, stretches, growls. Sometimes he can open his eyes for a moment. It lasts a few
seconds to 1 to 2 minutes and it calms down.

Quiet sleep (equivalent to slow sleep)
The baby is still, his eyes are closed without eye movements, his face is relaxed.
Sometimes he has periodic sucking movements. His breathing is calm and regular.

7 common mistakes parents should avoid

7 mistakes to avoid for baby sleep

1. Putting your child to sleep too late
When babies and toddlers are too tired, they have a lot of trouble
finding sleep, and their night can be disturbed. They would also tend to
get up sooner than if you had them go to bed at a more reasonable time.
It is therefore better to have a bedtime ritual and respect it every night.
2. Do not give him the opportunity to go back to sleep alone
Maybe your child is just having a bad dream and he’s going to
go back to sleep after a minute. So be patient and do not rush into
his bed to help him. Do not stay in the room until baby is falling asleep again.
The more you do it, the more it will be difficult for him to fall asleep alone without you. He’s still a baby of course, so he needs your help, but you can help him gain some autonomy as well.
3. Put your baby in his crib when he’s already asleep
Putting a baby to bed after he has fallen asleep is one of the worst mistakes that
commit the parents. It’s confusing for a baby to wake up in a
cradle, while the last thing he remembers is having been snuggled all
against you. At the next micro-alarm, sometimes after 15-20 minutes after being placed asleep in his cradle, your baby will realize that he is no longer well
set in your arms and will scream in surprise. He must be placed
awake or lightly asleep in bed so he can develop the skills
he needs to fall asleep by himself.
4. Neglecting the bedtime ritual / routine
With a newborn, an ideal bedtime ritual may consist of a bath, a small
hug, a little story (or the ritual of your choice). A nursery rhyme is not yet
mandatory. Your child will grow up, and you may feel that he is too old to
a ritual, or you do not want to repeat it night after night.
Nevertheless, it is important to continue to offer enjoyable activities and
calm before bedtime. They prepare your little one to sleep well. These sleep aids can be a great help to set up this daily bedtime routine.
5. Take it in your bed
First, because it’s a bad habit. Then because co-sleeping is not risk-free. Many sudden infant deaths would be consequences to this practice
(except if it is practiced respecting the basic safety rules).
6. Always give him the pacifier
You can of course give your Baby the pacifier before falling asleep. But give it
systematic way to prevent crying at night is not necessarily a
good option. The baby used to the nipple may experience real difficulties in
go back to sleep if he can not find it anymore. And every time he loses his pacifier he will wake up …
several times a night.
7. Give him a syrup that helps him sleep
There are no medicines adapted to make baby sleep. And giving him
sleeping pills can seriously compromise the development of his brain.

Bedtime problems

Bedtime apprehension: Fear of the dark, afraid of monsters

Bedtime apprehension: Fear of the dark, afraid of monsters
All children are afraid of darkness, monsters, thunderstorms …
Childish fears are experiences that grow, provided they are tamed.
Quietly but surely, you can help your child overcome them.

At each age … his fear
Here are some common fears depending on the age of the child:
– 8 months: separation anxiety (fear of strangers, fear of abandonment, etc.).
– 1 year: fear of noise (vacuum cleaner, telephone, mixer, etc.).
– 18 months: afraid of monsters or darkness. Whereas before, he slept the lights off and the door closed, he now asks to keep the door ajar. He realizes that, alone in the dark, he no longer has his bearings and feels in danger.
– From 2 to 4 years: transient fears (big animals especially if there are none at home, storms, clowns, imaginary creatures such as witches, ghosts or robots.) They are sometimes transmitted by the excessive reaction of others facing certain
– From 5 to 12 years old: specific fears (insects, thieves and kidnappers, doctors and dentists, fear of emptiness, accidents). The child may also be afraid of
natural disasters or war, after seeing news footage
disturbing on the television. It is also the age of the first social fears (to be rejected at school, to speak in public, etc.) that are similar to those of adults.
How to react to his nocturnal anxieties?
Learning to face one’s fears is an important step in a child’s development.
Little by little, through his experiences, the child learns to distinguish harmless situations from those that are really dangerous. This can greatly increase his confidence. Therefore, you play a vital role in helping him slowly and gradually to fight and defeat them. Your attitude, as a parent, can make a difference. Here are some ways to guide you:
– Take seriously the fear of your child, without ridiculing or scolding him. Even if it is unreasonable or seems innocuous, the fear is real.
– Strengthen one’s courage. Remind him of situations where he is not afraid or others where he has managed to overcome his fear.
– Decode his signals of fear. Without naming them, your child may show that he is afraid when he is hiding, closing his eyes, and so on.
– Encourage the expression of his emotions so that he learns to name his fears
and talk to him. Words help young children to control their emotions

Focus on … fear of monsters

Often linked to the fear of darkness, to being alone, as well as to the development of one’s imagination, fear of monsters resolves itself by reassuring your child and making him talk about his fear, during the day or before dodo.
When you comfort your child when he is afraid, you help him feel safe. This feeling gives him the courage he needs to finally face and overcome his fears:
 Réassure him, while telling him that it is the fruit of his imagination and that monsters do not exist. You can check once under the bed, with him, but no more. If you do it every time, you give him reason to be afraid.
– Establish a comfort ritual, before bedtime, secures your child: a bath, followed by a story or quiet games, for example.
– The atmosphere of the room is very important : Install a small night light
will provide a soft and soothing light, as sweet soft toys, small relaxing music, smell of mom impregnated on a lange and placed in the bed are
so many reassuring elements for baby
– If he wakes up at night, frightened , it is better to immediately comfort him, listen to him without interrupting him, and then help him to differentiate reality from his imagination.

Feeding sleeptime

Sleep Nutrition: Foods that help baby to good

What dinner to give to baby before going to sleep?
Among the important things in the context of a good sleep and a sleep of
quality, there is, besides the rituals of falling asleep also a satiating evening meal and
easy to digest. It is, of course, obvious that such a given meal, for example, in the form
porridge, must not contain added sugars.
After the 4th-6th month, the purely milky diet is gradually replaced by a
diversified food, and we introduce particular porridge, as recommended
the Institute for Pediatric Nutrition Research. In this context, parents ask themselves
many questions about the porridge to give the child to ensure a good night’s sleep

Does an easy-to-digest, satiating meal allow the baby to be well
to sleep ?

In the evening, a milk-grain porridge remains in place. The milk of this meal brings to the baby
Useful proteins that are easy to digest. The cereals bring him energy. The cereals
make sure that the baby’s body will have all the necessary energy
all night. This allows the baby to sleep without being disturbed by hunger.
This is the best way to ensure a good night’s sleep and a lift in full
It is also important to be attentive to the signals emitted by the baby. For the evening meal, be sure to
he is not too tired and he does not fall asleep during dinner or almost.
For a good night’s sleep, the baby needs to eat in a serene environment and satiety.
The day, let it be spent and plan cuddle breaks for your little treasure
can easily separate from you for the night.
When baby’s diet becomes more diverse, nighttime nutrition becomes superfluous. baby
must be able to do his nights without being awakened by hunger.
For this, he needs a balanced diet throughout the day, including
a dinner adapted to his needs.

Should I feed baby during the night?

Each child has his own rhythm for both sleeping and eating and his own
needs too. The first weeks of his life, the newborn is not yet
difference between day and night. He’s just not used to staying long without
food. In his mother’s body, he could get satiated at any time of the day
or night. So it is certain, at least in the first weeks, that the baby
wake up at night and ask to be fed.
If you give your baby a milk age, you can share the task of bottle feeding
at night with your partner. You can also do it even if you are breastfeeding if you
pull milk in the evening and put it in the fridge (not more than 12 hours).
From 3 months, the baby can already stay longer without eating and therefore sleep
a little longer at night than during the day. From the age of 2, children no longer need to
eat at night because at this age, in principle, the hunger-satiety rhythm is well established.
