During the first months of his life, a toddler sleeps approximately 18 hours out of 24. This sleep is essential to its cerebral maturation and the development of its body. During this invaluable period of time, the organization sets up its internal clock and produces the growth hormone. Good conditions of sleep are thus essential.
So certain babies “will make harms to them very quickly”, others need more than time so that a regular cycle is set up. Up to one month, the toddler does not distinguish the night from the day and awakes quite simply according to the hunger or if it is not any more sleepy. Around 4 months, a baby sleeps approximately 9 hours at a stretch during the night and has several “sleep break” in the course of the day. From 6 months, a baby sleeps on average 15 hours out of 24 and up to 4 years it will need 12 to 14 hours of sleep for its development. For a sleep of quality, it is necessary to create around baby a bubble of calm. A calm activity, like the bath, a ritual as to sing a lullaby invite the toddler with the sleep. Without for all this that does not last of the hours, endeavour to be slackened and concentrated at the present moment. For the déco of the room, bet rather on soft colors to create a soft nest in which baby will feel safe. To help you, Bioalaune concocted you a small selection shopping.
To transform the small bed of baby into protective cocoon, Vert Baudet imagined this pure bed valance out of percale cotton resulting from the organic farming, cultivated without chemical fertilizers nor pesticides. One cracks particularly for these small sheep joined together on a very nice “family photo”. (1) Bed valance sheeps, Vert Baudet, 39,90 euros. The covers and other feather beds being proscribed in the bed of all-small, one chooses a turbulette or Cocobag: this bag long-line bra particularly adapted to new-born leaves the free arms and puts light pressure on the level of the belly thanks to its elastic band, which can help to relieve of possible colics. (2) Turbulette giraffe, Natures Purest at Brindilles.fr, 39,90 euros. (3) Cocobag, Redcastle, 26,50 euros.
To accompany baby in his first nights, these pyjamas in pure organic cotton jersey are made very soft on its fragile skin, (4) Pyjamas out of organic cotton, Vert Baudet, 14,90 euros. On its side the organic cotton of the snap fastener Natures Purest is resulting from flowers collected with the hand and naturally coloured, which gives tons delicate, between the cream and chestnut. Of a very soft pH, this material breathes as naturally as the skin of baby. (5) Snap fastener elephant, Sleepy safari, Natures Purest at Brindilles.fr, 22 euros. And to deaden baby carefully all, nothing better than a lullaby adorable, the puppy Arthur. (6) Musical cuddly toy Arthur and Merlin, Noukie’s, 34,90 euros.
