The consequences of a bad sleep for your Baby

Does your baby wake up every night, preventing you from falling asleep? Maybe it's hiding a deeper problem !  

 

WHAT IS A GOOD NIGHT OF SLEEP ?

It is often said that having a good night's sleep is "sleeping like a baby". A standard that our little ones must respect each other in order to have a healthy growth. The sleep of small children is nowadays increasingly neglected, and its consequences are only just beginning to be felt in our society, through various academic research. A recent study found that a baby aged 1 to 3 wakes up on average 3 times a night, and that the longer it takes for the baby to learn to sleep well, the less likely it is that it will not have a sleep problem later on.

It is important to dissociate what good sleep is from bad sleep in our little cherubs!

A good night's sleep is the baby's ability to fall asleep by himself after a nightly awakening, and like everything else in the baby, it is obviously a learning experience. This is where the Bbiies baby mattress comes into play, providing comfort that perfectly promotes easy sleep for the baby, and therefore more restful nights for the parent.

Babies who need a parent to stay with them until they fall asleep are at greater risk of chronic sleep deprivation, which often results in dyssomnia problems. While babies who learn to get a good night's sleep very early, in extreme comfort as they grow, know that they can go back to sleep on their own after a nightly awakening.

SLEEP AND SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT :

A recent study based on several aspects of child development concluded that behavioural problems are often associated with sleep problems and short nights of sleep. High aggression scores were even noted in children who had sleep problems very early on, but never treated.

 

SLEEP AND COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT :

Various studies have also shown that sleep problems in babies will affect their intellectual performance in adulthood. It is when the baby is very young that he develops his first signs of cognitive development, including working memory, impulse control and concentration ability. Future reading problems, as well as verbal expression problems, may be related to the child's sleep disorders.

 

SLEEP AND WEIGHT :

A study has also shown the link between the baby's sleep problems and the quality of his nutrition in adulthood. Children who had lower quality sleep were more likely to eat at irregular times and in greater quantities. Given the consequences of childhood obesity today, it is of the utmost importance to prevent obesity in our small babies. ❤️️
