Does your baby sleep like a baby?

What could be more soothing than watching a newborn baby sleep. Specially if that baby is your own!

Let's talk about baby sleep training. Whoever coined the phrase 'sleep like a baby' (which means enjoying a sound sleep) didn't have a baby of his own, for sure!

A baby wakes up hundreds of times throughout his sleep due to many reasons such as demanding milk, needing a diaper change, feeling too hot or cold, feeling uncomfortable in his clothes or crib, or he just wants to wake up! (yep, babies don't have to be too logical at this age - or any other age even when they grow up!)

Cranky baby = Cranky mother

A newborn sleep is not just the time your newborn rests, energizes and develops; it is your time. The time when you can do something you want or have to do - a time when you can put aside your motherly/ robotic avatar and can finally breathe. You can relax, carry out your household chores, make an important phone call or connect with your partner.

This is the time when the baby is properly fed and tucked in his crib with comfortable diapers and clothes. Try giving yourself the time you need. It will not only be beneficial for you but for your baby too. A physically and mentally healthy mother is all a baby needs.

But wait a minute...

Are you thinking how on earth can you carry out your chores, relax or spend some quality time with your spouse when your little angel keeps on waking up from time to time? This leads us to an important question...

How to make your baby's sleep routine?

Enjoy your 'Me-time'

After endless efforts to make your little one fall asleep, you may have noticed that your battery totally drains out. Yes, the urges to cry without a reason and feeling (dark) blue serves as an indication of your low-battery. So what do you do now? Remember, a physically and mentally healthy mother is what your whole family needs - it's what you need. Sleep, relax, or just do anything you like - the cobwebs and dirty dishes can wait!

If you think the whole baby-experience has taken its toll on your relationship with your spouse or other kids, the time your baby sleeps is the time you can make up for it. If you think you need more sleep, then sleep. If you want to get those creative juices flowing, do some DIY task with family. If you have a long list of pending chores, start now - one by one. Don't rush it, one thing at a time, and whatever you are doing, enjoy it.
