Managing Expectations as a Parent
Managing Expectations as a Parent

Getting used to having a newborn baby can be difficult for parents. The most problematic adjustment for most parents can be getting accustomed to baby sleep patterns. It’s no secret that a new parent can expect many sleepless nights, so understanding what type of sleep their baby will be getting might help parents to realize what these first few months will be like.

Baby Sleep Consulting

A newborn baby for the most part does little more than sleep and feed. This keeps a mother busy with breast-feeding and nappy changes around the clock. Baby sleep patterns for the first 3 weeks should be a total of 16-20 hours of sleep every day. Since it’s common for them to sleep for short bursts at a time it’s important for parents to get as much support as possible. By 6 months of age a baby’s circadian rhythm really starts to develop and for this reason it’s common to start experiencing sleep issues. Before this, a baby’s body is not regulated by light and dark as an older child’s is.

Baby Parents

With both babies and toddlers, it’s important to remember to manage your expectations as a parent. Whilst sleep deprivation can be a very tough thing, parents need to understand that frequent night waking is normal. Rather than to assume you are doing something wrong, try to relax and go with the flow. If you are not coping as well as you would like then seek support from those around you. For parents of toddlers waking up at night or waking early in the morning, it’s also important to think whether what is happening is normal before stressing about the situation too much. In the pre-school years it’s very normal for toddlers to experience night-mares and night terrors due to their imaginations really starting to develop. To help minimize night-mares and night terrors parents can limit television and technology use. Early rising in the toddler years can also be problematic. If you have a toddler waking at 5am every morning then there’s a good chance they have not had enough sleep. Further to this, the last sleep cycle that occurs at this time is very important for their development so it’s important to act on this to combat the problem. However, if you have a toddler waking at 6am, rather than stress over the situation, if they have been in bed since 7pm the night before then there’s a good chance they have received enough sleep so it’s not worth fighting to get them back to sleep.
