A nice rhythm

After spending all that time in your belly, your baby will suddenly end up in an all-new environment. And suddenly he will have to deal with day and night, light and dark. It’s not possible for him to have the perfect rhythm from day 1. This has to ‘grow’. You help your baby a lot by offering him rest and predictability.

Sleep and security

Your baby has been in your belly for months. Everything was familiar and warm there. After the birth, your child will end up in this very big world. He’s still very open then, and takes everything in. He can’t protect himself from cold, drafts and all of those impressions yet. As a parent you play a very important part. Because for healthy growth and development, your baby needs rest and security. He relies on you, his parents, completely for this. Organize the life of your baby, keep him warm and offer him restriction if necessary.

The first weeks

During your pregnancy, your baby spends most of the time in your belly sleeping. After the birth he will also be sleeping a lot. This is why your child doesn’t really know anything about a day or night rhythm. Just like your child himself, this has to grow. After a few weeks, your baby will slowly start developing his own sleep cycle, be awake more and more often during the day, and sleep more deeply at night.

Your baby will let you know when it’s been enough; he wants rest and a good sleep. There are early and late sleep signals. Put your child to bed after the very first sleep signals you pick up, even if he still seems very awake!

Because it is good for the baby, but also for them. `Is your baby sleeping through the night yet?’ is a question you are asked constantly as a parent. When this is not the case, it can make you feel a little insecure. You’re also feeling tired yourself, and you are probably longing for the long nights of before.
