Oh, someone, and moms really know the price of sleep. Before the birth of the child, I could not think that some day it would be my happiness to just drop my head on my favorite pillow.
However, right now, when sleep is much less time than you would like, I wondered how to use this time of rest to the maximum. And, of course, how to make your baby’s sleep more comfortable.
The comfort of a night’s rest depends mainly on 4 things: pajamas, bedding, room atmosphere and the presence of conscience among the neighbors. And if it is very difficult to influence the last item, then we can easily set up the first three.
As for the room, everything is clear: fresh air, sufficient humidity and coolness are basic requirements. But bed linen and pajamas everyone chooses based on personal preferences and considerations regarding safety and hygiene.
In a familiar couple, the child completely refuses to fall asleep if he is wearing at least something. And I think that he is absolutely right. The maximum that a sleeping baby needs is panties with a strip of elastic fabric instead of a rubber band or a diaper.
Of course, in the store it is sometimes difficult to get past the tiny nightgown with bows, ruffles and circles. But think about whether this luxury is necessary for a small karapuzu who likes to sleep so that the priest is above his head, and by morning he is not at all where you put him in the evening?
Although, if the next ice age has arrived in the apartment (which is not at all rare), it is worth thinking about a warm pajama. Especially if the child periodically crawls out from under the blanket. It is better to choose a model without buttons and other volume fasteners – they can cause significant discomfort to delicate skin.
Pajamas should not be too tight so as not to hinder movement. But excessive width is not a good solution either. A loose top and knickers with a loose elastic band are perfect for small hothouses.
Bed linen and accessories
With the fact that bedding should be made of natural quality materials, no need to argue. They breathe, absorb moisture well, do not cause allergies. But what about the colors of linen and mattress filling with a pillow?
I tend to choose artificial fillers. First of all, all kinds of parasites (feather mites and the like) do not start up in them. Secondly, it is easier and easier to clean and wash them. Thirdly, such fillers are more wear-resistant, and often lighter by weight.
As for the colors, it so happened that all the bedding was presented to us. And it is all very bright, with cartoon characters. The kid feels quite comfortable in such an environment.
However, I prefer calm monochromatic kits, looking at which I want to relax, rather than start dancing along with cheerful bees (bears, hares). Although the baby knows better.
