When there’s a newborn in your home, some sleeplessness is to be expected. And while all babies are unique and learn to sleep at different rates, these are a few measures you can take to help facilitate your best shot at catching some Z’s.
Vibrating bedtime soother: The sensation of gentle vibrating is known to calm babies to sleep. Combined with certain sounds and a quality swaddle, it can simulate the feeling of being in the womb. An attachable vibrating soother works well for cribs, bassinets and strollers, and some can even be operated via Bluetooth for convenience.
Sposie Diaper Booster Pads: One pesky culprit of poor sleep is a wet diaper, or worse, a wet sheet. Diapers can’t always hold the amount of liquid and moisture for a full night, especially for babies with sensitive skin or who wet heavily. All parents can benefit from using Sposie Diaper Booster Pads. Each adds an extra layer of maximum absorption to keep things drier longer. Available in three sizes, it fits all diapers and guards against leaks and diaper rash, which isn’t only great for sleeping, but for long car rides or travel, too! Sposie is certified hypoallergenic, free from all chemicals, pediatrician and dermatologist tested, and made in the U.S.
Blackout curtains: Depending on the room or the season, it’s possible your nursery is letting in too much light for your child to realize it’s time to sleep. The added darkness of blackout curtains can encourage healthy sleep patterns in the early weeks when your baby confuses day with night. These portable blinds easily attach to any window with suction cups and travel well for quality sleep at home, on vacation or at grandma’s house.
