It is not a good phenomenon for babies to sleep during the day!

For children, sleep is very important for their physical and brain development. Parents can't just focus on sleeping at night, but also napping during the day.

Daytime napping refers to the baby's short-term sleep during the day, which can repair the baby's fatigue to a certain extent. Of course, children of different ages have different needs for daytime naps.

It is not a good phenomenon for babies to sleep during the day!

1. Newborns

The total amount of sleep required by newborns in a day is about 15-18 hours, and there is no obvious pattern in the number of naps during the day.

At this stage, parents do not need to plan the baby's nap schedule during the day, but only need to follow the child's nature.

2. Babies from one to three months old

When the baby grows to a month, the need for sleep is slightly reduced, the total amount of sleep required a day is about 15-16 hours, and the number of naps during the day is about 3-4 times.

How to arrange the child's nap time during the day? Parents can calculate according to the actual situation of the baby and the family situation.

For example, if the baby goes to bed at 9 p.m. and gets up around 7 a.m., then the baby sleeps for 10 hours throughout the night. During the day, you can arrange 5-6 hours of sleep for your baby three or four times.

For example, the first nap can be scheduled between 9 and 10 o'clock;

The second nap is scheduled between 12 and 13:30;

The third nap is scheduled between 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.;

The fourth nap is scheduled for 6 p.m.-7 p.m.

3. Babies around six months old

When the baby is half a year old, the time of wakefulness during the day will gradually increase, the total amount of sleep throughout the day is about 14-15 hours, and only 2-3 naps are needed during the day.

If the baby still goes to bed at 9 o'clock at night and gets up at about 7 o'clock in the morning, parents only need to arrange 4-5 hours of sleep time for the baby two or three times during the day.

For example, the first nap can be scheduled between 9 and 10:30;

The second nap is scheduled for 12:30-14 o'clock;

The third nap is scheduled between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

4. Babies around 9 months to 18 months

As the baby grows up, the need for sleep will be further reduced, and the sleep time of the whole day only needs 13-14 hours, and only 1-2 naps are needed during the day.

If the baby's mental state is better, parents only need to arrange for the child to take a nap at noon.

But if this arrangement does not maintain your baby's energy, you can give your baby an extra nap break.

Parents need to be reminded here that the basis for arranging the baby's nap is to maintain the stability of sleep at night, and then make reasonable arrangements according to the number of naps that the baby is used to, or the sleep interval.

In addition, the end time of the baby's last nap should be arranged before 19 o'clock as much as possible to ensure that the baby will not fall asleep too late at night and will not fall asleep due to excessive fatigue.

It is not a good phenomenon for babies to sleep during the day!

Although this arrangement seems very simple, parents will encounter some difficulties in actual operation, such as some babies have a short nap time during the day and are always easy to wake up, why is this?

Generally speaking, our sleep is composed of light sleep and deep sleep, and for children, most of the time the baby's sleep is relatively light and sensitive to changes in the surrounding environment, so it is particularly easy to wake up.

Especially for babies before 3 months, generally speaking, a sleep cycle is about 47-49 minutes, and most of them are light sleep, so the baby's nap time at this time will be relatively short.

Wait until the baby is about 8 months old, although a sleep cycle seems to have increased by only 1 minute, to about 50 minutes, but at this time the baby's deep sleep time has doubled compared with before, and it is not easy to be woken up, and it is easier to sleep.

If you want your baby to have a reasonable nap time, then parents can take the following steps to help your child:

(1) If you want your baby to sleep for a long time, you can feed your child some milk before falling asleep. In order to prevent the baby from feeling a little hungry at the end of a sleep cycle, it is not conducive to the baby's continuation of the next sleep cycle.

(2) Pay more attention to the baby to avoid making him too tired when he falls asleep, which will also reduce the probability of the baby connecting to the next sleep cycle.

(3) When the baby's first sleep cycle is over, parents should not rush up to coax the baby or talk to him. Instead, you should observe quietly, and if the child wakes up without crying or making trouble, then parents can give the baby a little time to try to fall asleep on his own.

However, if the child is more dependent on his parents and has difficulty falling asleep independently, then parents can help the baby to sleep, which can be consistent with the way of sleeping, and can also be appropriately upgraded, such as falling asleep when falling asleep, and sleeping when sleeping.

At the same time, parents should also maintain a good attitude, don't think that every sleep of the baby every day is a long sleep, which will only add a little anxiety to yourself.

It is not a good phenomenon for babies to sleep during the day!

Of course, there are also some children who sleep better and take long naps during the day, and some parents are worried about whether they need to wake up their children so as not to affect their night's rest.

If your baby doesn't nap for more than 3 hours during the day, you don't need to wake him up.

And if the nap time during the day is too long, it affects the child's nighttime rest, such as:

(1) It is difficult to fall asleep at night, and the time to fall asleep is more than half an hour later than the normal time;

(2) The baby wakes up earlier in the morning and usually more than half an hour earlier;

(3) The baby wakes up too early, wakes up before 6 o'clock, and sleeps less than 10 hours throughout the night.

However, under normal circumstances, after the baby is 2 years old, the need for daytime naps will decrease, and the time will be reduced accordingly.

If the baby does not need to take a nap during the day, he will not be sleepy while eating at dinner, and it will not affect the sleep time and quality at night, then parents do not need to force the child to take a nap during the day.
