How do babies sleep? Why didn't you sleep the night? Eight points summarize the characteristics of infant sleep by Dr. William Sears, a pediatrician, the father of 8 children, whose name is related to the educational book of babies.
Breastfeeding your baby's sleepOn the La Leche League page, Dr. Sears has collected some important principles about baby sleep. If we understand these essentials, we will also accept that babies simply sleep as adults, and need and need them.
1. This is how adults sleepThe majority of adults develop various rituals and habits to get them into the relaxed state of sleep: reading, watching, making love, listening to music. Nobody sleeps like that big suddenly. When we fall asleep, we are so awake, this is called non-REM, or non-rapid eye movement. In this case, the mind and body are at rest. The breathing will be deep, smooth, our muscles will relax. Mostly, we sleep in this state, and then the brain starts to wake up and work. In this case, we pass into the light or otherwise called active sleep phase, the main feature of which is rapid eye movement (which shows brain activity) called REM sleep. We swim, rotate, clean, harvest, move, just to wake up. During this phase, we also wake up and go to the wash basin, then go back to bed and go back to sleep immediately. two sleep stages, the light and the deep cycle of the dream they exchange each other during the night, much to their chances. So an average adult has six hours spent relaxing and two in the active sleep cycle. So we think in vain that we had a good night's sleep, that is not the case.

3. Infants have shorter sleep periods
Adults' sleep cycles, from light to deep and then light again, last for an average of 90 minutes. However, infant cycles are shorter: they last for 50-60 minutes, so they are awake or more frequent at critical wake-up points. If we put our hands on the back, sing to her, or just stand by her because we sleep in her bed, then we can help her during this period. can help you back into the deep sleep.For sleep cycles unique distinction is, teaches the baby to observe what the baby needs and to create an environment for the baby to help him or her during the critical period of the night awakening. The unique difference between sleep cycles teaches us that one of the aims of night time parenting is to create an environment for the baby to improve, which is a critical time to wake up.
4. Babies do not sleep as deep as adults
5. The night awakenings serve the purpose of passingIt is important to see the correlation between the night's awakening and the baby's natural need that the baby needs the most in the first few months, but is able to express the least to mention just a few examples. Imagine an infant who sleeps like most adults at night: his basic need remains unfulfilled. Infants have small stomachs, breast milk is easy and quick to digest, and if they are sick but do not wake up, this is a disadvantage for them. And a it is at risk. Babies do not wake up to make it harder for their parents to rest, but because they are supposed to. Sleep has led researchers to say that active sleep protects their babies. Imagine your child sleeping like an adult, that is, overpowering the night with overnight sleep! Sounds wonderful! For you, probably, but not for the baby, says Dr. Sears. Babies are born with a sleep pattern that allows them to wake up when they need something you would be in jeopardyBelieve me, and research confirms that frequent active (REM) sleep serves the baby's physiological interests the most in the early months when the good is at stake - says Sears.Sears also warns a baby to sleep too far, in terms of survival and development, does not serve his interests at all.
6. The night awakening also serves the purpose of development
7. As they grow, the baby's sleep becomes more mature
8. Babies continue to wake upWhen a baby is awakened to sleep like an adult, similar to sleep cycles, it changes individually.Sometimes the first year changes by half they get here, even though they wake up, because of the more common painful and unpleasant things like grappling or gnawing, bigger developmental leaps, landmarks, waking, running. The others practice the baby indoors. Later, one to two years of age, anxiety and separation anxiety may also appear among the causes of night-time awakening. the peaceful night's rest, the relationship between the baby, the parents and their three cannot be balanced - concludes Dr. Sears.
