2022 in full swing!

Can't get your day started?

Your baby not allowing you to do anything?

Wake up after 30 minutes?

To ease your baby into nap time:

Set the mood. A dark, quiet environment can help encourage your baby to sleep.

Put your baby to bed drowsy, but awake. Before your baby gets overtired or cranky, you might try singing soft lullabies or swaddling or massaging him or her. ...

Be safe. ...

Be consistent.

•keep an eye on their awake times. Make sure they are age appropriate 😉

Fix baby's night sleep.

•Fill the belly

•Create a nap-friendly space.

Start a calming pre-nap routine.

Keep your baby's nap schedule consistent.

Get your baby falling asleep independently.

If you still struggle, contact us. We can help.

A little Tuesday joke!

The three types of baby's cry are:

Hunger cry: Newborns during their first 3 months of life need to be fed every couple of hours. ...

Colic: During the first month after birth, about 1 in 5 newborns may cry because of colic pain. ...

Sleep cry: If your baby is 6 months old, your child should be able to fall asleep on their own.

If you baby is medically healthy and they cry, it is OK for them to cry. You might want to put then in the crib and leave the room for a couple of minutes. Maybe even make yourself a cup of tea. It is OK.

Baby's will cry from time to time, it is OK.

Give yourself a break. If you get rid of the anxiety and self doubt, and calm down, your baby might follow and relax!

Sleep deprivation is dangerous.

You may joke that you put the car keys in the fridge and the fish food in the toilet due to lack of sleep, but it’s not really a laughing matter. Severe and prolonged sleep deprivation can cause memory lapses, depression, hallucinations and high blood pressure.

Get help for both your baby and you!

Babies deprive their parents of approximately 44 days of sleep.
And that’s only in the first year. Good thing they are so cute!

A whole 44 days.

Sleeping through.......

Does it exist? Is it a thing? Is it possible?

First we have to remember the little word PERCEPTION........

Why PERCEPTION?

Not everyone 's perception about what sleeping through means, are the same.

At Moms Lifeline we believe that no human sleep from 7 till 6, 365, 24/7 without waking up.

Our perception is as follows:

If you link 6/7 cycles and then comes out of sleep, and put yourself back to sleep when you ready to go back to sleep, without needing help or assistance in any form. That in my opinion mean you sleep through.

We all wake up from time to time, we need the bathroom, we too hot, we have a little cough, etc etc.

It is normal for a human to wake up from time to time. The problem is not in waking but what needs to happen to get yourself to go back to sleep.

If your child does not need your assistance when waking up at night, you should be grateful and proud as your child has mastered the skill how to fall asleep. Well done!!

If they still need assistance to link cycles or need help to go back to sleep, we can help.

Sleeping through does not exist, however by 6 months of age, most babies are capable of sleeping for at least six to eight hours at night. If your baby still wakes up several times a night, these sleep patterns are possibly habits that most likely will continue for many months unless you make some changes.

What can I do?

Encourage your baby to become attached to a "lovey," such as a teddy bear or blanket.

Have a soothing, 5- to 15-minute bedtime routine. This may include a book, song and gentle rocking.

Put your baby to bed while still slightly awake. This way, your baby will know where she or he is during an awakening.

Try using a night light.

Allow your baby to cry a little before falling asleep.

Don't start any new habits in the middle of the night that you are not willing to continue for many months.

Don't pick up or feed your baby during the night.

Speak softly to your baby and let him or her know that you are there, but it is time to go to sleep.

Most of baby's brain development happens during sleep: literally. This is when the connections between the left and right hemispheres of their brains are being formed. Brain synapses are formed during sleep: more than 1,000,000 million neural connections are formed per second during their first 3 years.

A study by Lampl and Johnson showed a link between increased bursts of sleep and growth spurts in body length, which showed that growth spurts both occur during sleep and are influenced by it – it is thought that this may be because of the release of somatotropin during sleep.

When your baby is about 2 months old, her internal clock will be a bit more predictable — and you may be able to start implementing a basic newborn sleep schedule. Between 3 and 6 months, your baby's bedtime, naptime and wake-up times will increasingly fall at around the same times each day.

If you're serious on instilling good sleep habits and teaching your baby to fall asleep and stay asleep without too much intervention on your part, then yes, put your baby in their crib fully awake, and teach them to fall asleep independently.

Falling asleep is a skill, a milestone.

Like everything in their lives, they need to learn how. Create an environment that is positive for learning without you doing it for them!!
