Night Lights & Sleeping Comforters
In the first few weeks of life, your baby doesn’t have a circadian rhythm which is vital in helping them to distinguish between daylight and nighttime. This rhythm, more commonly known as the ‘body clock’ starts ticking at about six weeks of age. In general baby sleep cycles are much shorter than those of adults and babies spend more time in REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, which is considered vital for the extraordinary development and changes taking place in their brain. REM sleep is much lighter than non-REM sleep, and therefore more easily disrupted. However there is hope on the horizon, a new study published in the journal Pediatrics by researchers at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, states that by the age of 5 months, over 50% of all infants are following their parent’ sleeping times – and sleeping blissfully right through the night! But in the meantime, ensuring your baby is comfortable, safe and secure will help to create a soothing and calming environment for your little one to fall asleep in.
