A baby sleeps a lot, that surely is no secret, as the average baby sleeps over double what a, typical adult sleeps. However, the problem with this is that babies unlike adults cannot distinguish between night and day, as babies usually sleep whenever so they please, unlike most adults who have a specific timetable for when to sleep, which for most is around night. Moodzie will share some expert tips on how to manage your baby’s sleeping schedule according to yours, as ideally you want the baby asleep around night time when you are sleeping, because when the baby is, awake it surely is not possible for the adult to sleep. When the baby is a newborn, he or she will certainly not be able to tell when is the right time to fall into deep sleep, however once the baby is a few weeks old, it will be easier to teach them the difference between night and day, by using light strategically. As Moodzie’s tip would be to teach the baby, that when it is dark outside, or the lights are out within the room, then it is time for not only the baby but everyone to fall asleep, whereas when the lights are bright or the sun is out, that is the time where most people remain awake. It is human nature, that when it is light outside the brain naturally becomes more reactive and awake in the process, whereas when it is dark inside or out, it is natural for humans to feel more tired and sleepy. Thus, during the day a tip by Moodzie would be, that the adults within the house should make sure there are lights on within the house, basically the sun is bright and visible and blinds are folded, and when it is dark or night on the other end, make sure it is dark as well within the house. This will help the baby naturally realize the difference between light and darkness, and the baby will automatically associate when it is dark inside or out that it is time to sleep, whereas when it is bright the baby will realize this is not a time for deep sleep. As Moodzie realizes that compared to adults, babies require far more sleep, however the goal should be that babies receive the bulk of their deep or rem sleep during the night time, whereas they simply interval sleep throughout the day. Another tip by Moodzie to all adults out there would be, do not stress out when the baby wakes up around night time, if it occurs which it probably will sometime, do not move the baby from a dark room to a light or bright room, as if you do that it will show the baby that it is time to wake up, rather than doing just keep the baby within the dark and simply try to make him or her fall asleep once again. Moodzie realizes it will take time to get used to the baby’s sleep, it will be tough at first but certainly can be resolved.
