HOW THE ENVIRONMENT CAN AFFECT TODDLERS SLEEP

HOW THE ENVIRONMENT CAN AFFECT TODDLERS SLEEP

Temperament is defined as how a child naturally reacts to situations and stimuli, mood, ability to calm themselves and activity level. Many researchers believe that temperament is biological which means this is how a child is wired to be and it is not a result of the environment.

A baby’s temperament will affect which sleep training method a parent might choose to help their baby sleep better. A child’s temperament and personality will determine whether a no cry sleep training method will take 1 hour or 3 months or if choosing a cry-method is likely to work better.

From the first day after they are born the way a baby reacts to being wet, hungry or tired will be different to other babies. Where one baby might be low-key and not get very upset another baby may scream loudly in the same situation. This is also the reason why one sleep training method works well for some babies and will not work for others.

Three common temperament and personality types are listed below with a brief synopsis of how they can affect a baby’s sleep.

Intensity

A baby or toddler’s intensity is how strongly they emotionally react to something. High intensity babies react strongly and might have a louder cry. For babies who are low intensity they may not cry much at all.

If your baby is a high intensity baby, it will be hard to leave them upset for anything longer than a couple of minutes when they’re young. A high-intensity baby might get more upset when they wake up between sleep cycles and cannot go back to sleep. It may also take longer during the bedtime routine to help soothe a high intensity baby before sleep. If attempting to use a no-cry sleep training method a high intensity baby will likely still cry and it can be very hard listening to a screaming baby while trying to break sleep associations

Persistence

A baby’s persistence is how easily or difficult he can stop a task if told to and how strong-willed they are when they get their mind set on something. Persistence might reveal itself when a baby wants to nurse and they won’t take no for an answer without erupting in tears and will not settle down with any other soothing method.

How might a baby’s persistence affect her sleep? If a child is a less persistent baby it is easier to sleep train them. Typically, less persistent babies and toddlers accept no for an answer and do not stay upset very long when there are changes. Most parents will just need to commit to making changes in order for baby sleep change to happen.

If a baby is a very persistent baby it will be harder to get more co-operation out of them when they have their mind set on something. If using a no-cry sleep training method, it will likely take longer than those with less persistent babies.

Perceptiveness

A baby’s perceptiveness is how much a child notices things like people, colors, and noises. A perceptive child may forget directions or instructions given to them because something else has caught her attention. In addition they might notice many things that other people may not, such as a rock in the grass that other kids would walk past.

So many things can affect a child’s sleep. Sleep Consulting by Sleepy Starz offers a range of affordable sleep consultations to help babies and children achieve better sleep. Head to www.sleepystarz.com/sleep-consulting/ for more information.
