What is the hazard of sleeping with a baby?
First of all, holding the baby to sleep, the baby often does not sleep deeply. Therefore, after waking up, they often feel listless, which affects the quality of sleep; if the baby sleeps alone in a comfortable bed, he will sleep very sweetly.
Secondly, hold the baby to sleep, because parents don’t have a lot of space in their arms, the baby’s body can’t stretch, the body and limbs’ activities will be restricted, and the muscles of the whole body cannot be rested; sleeping alone can not only solve these problems , But also conducive to the development of bones, heart and lungs, while also enhancing resistance.
Thirdly, sleeping with your baby is not conducive to the intake of fresh air and is not conducive to the baby's metabolism.
Finally, holding the baby to sleep is not conducive to the development of the baby's independent living habits.
Misunderstanding that parents coax their baby to sleep
1. Shake to sleep
When the baby cries or sleeps restlessly, many parents are used to holding the baby in their arms or shaking them in the cradle until they fall asleep.
Although such actions can provide a soothing effect, they may cause damage to the immature brain.
Especially for babies three months ago, no matter how difficult it is to fall asleep, don't use the trick of shaking to sleep.
The shaking action will cause the baby's fragile brain to constantly hit the harder skull. Once the microvessels on the surface of the brain tissue are ruptured, epilepsy and concussion may occur.
In severe cases, it can cause mental retardation, intracranial hemorrhage, and cerebral edema, so you should try to avoid using shaking to sleep your baby.
Let the baby fall asleep naturally, the trick of not holding or shaking is here
If the baby’s retina is affected, it may cause permanent blindness, with serious consequences.
Parents can understand their love for their children. Many parents will put their arms around the baby when coaxing the baby to sleep, hoping to make the baby feel their love, so that the baby will feel more secure.
However, we need to know that sleeping will affect the baby's breathing. Most of the filthy air inhaled by the baby is the filthy air in the quilt, which will make the baby easy to get sick and may also increase the chance of suffocation accidents.
Sleeping can also cause the baby's limbs to be restricted, affect the normal blood circulation, and easily affect the quality of sleep due to the small movements of the parents.
3. Sleep with milk
Sleeping with milk is unavoidable for most babies. The mothers did not feel anything wrong.
Drinking milk is actually a physically demanding activity. Babies often fall asleep while pumping. If the bottle or nipples are kept in the baby's mouth, it may cause tooth decay and abnormal dentition growth.
Moreover, this method of coaxing sleep may also make the baby form the habit of taking milk as soon as he wakes up, which is not conducive to regular feeding, affects the baby's digestive function, and also restricts the baby's free activities, which is not conducive to blood circulation.
The solution to the baby's "wake up as soon as it is released"
1. Wake up when you put it down
A novice mother once described it like this: “The moment you put it in the crib after sleeping is too exciting, it’s like a bomb disposal!” Putting it down carefully and waking up immediately, it’s a test of the endurance and physical strength of the novice parents. .
Dismantling trick: In this case, repeatedly picking up and putting down the baby may cause the baby to wake up from sleep and make it harder to comfort him. For infants as young as one month old, hug sleep may be unavoidable, and novice parents need to try and work hard.
2. Wake up after half an hour of sleep
The baby finally fell asleep, thinking that he could finally breathe a sigh of relief, but he woke up after only half an hour of sleep, every time he was more punctual than the alarm clock.
Remedy: The sleep cycle of a newborn baby is 30-45 minutes. In fact, the baby needs to go to sleep after waking up, but most parents do not know it and start to tease the baby. After the baby wakes up, try to receive it, or touch, pat, etc. to reduce the difficulty of falling asleep again.
3. Wake up when there is a sound
After coaxing you to sleep, you can't make any noise. Even if you put a cup, you can wake up by closing the door, just like being a thief.
Dismantling trick: It may be due to the startle reflex of oneself, which is a physiological reason, and it will gradually get better with growth. Swaddling, cuddling and other methods can help babies feel more secure.
4. Sleep late and have difficulty falling asleep
Some babies don't fall asleep until after 11 o'clock at night, or they don't sleep during the day, or they don't sleep when they are very sleepy.
Remedy: This may be because the body is uncomfortable or over-stimulated, which makes it difficult to fall asleep. You can take your baby out to see the scenery and listen to the sound. On the contrary, moderate stimulation can make it easier for the baby to fall asleep.
5. Wake up early
I woke up at 4 or 5 in the morning, groaning, just didn't sleep, and the novice parents couldn't rest either.
Remedy: Some babies are born to wake up early, and their sleep time has met their needs. New mothers should not breastfeed their babies immediately to avoid habitual hunger. The bedroom should be dim and quiet to provide a good sleeping environment for the baby.
