Sleep well at all ages
A newborn baby sleeps on average between 12 and 16 hours a day. To ensure quality sleep for your baby, it is imperative to follow some simple rules
The basics of baby’s sleep
- Have baby sleep in his own bed and in his own room (if your home allows it)
- Choose aquality bed made of untreated wood with solvent-free paint.
- Choose a good mattress made of natural materials, removable cover, guaranteed without any chemical treatment.
- Ban comforters and pillows before the age of one and put baby in a sleeping bag. Prefer anOrganic Cotton sleeping bag that is softer and healthier for fragile skin.
- Make sure the room is not overloaded with toys and is well organized. Do not put stuffed animals in the bed, only your child’s blanket
- Do not overheat the room, the right temperature for sleeping is around 18°.
Your child is growing, he is changing beds!
The passage of a child in a bed of a person is generally done around 2 years. The child learns to go to bed by himself and to get up when he wants to. It is important to establish rules to prevent the child from getting up too often, without reason. For the child to feel comfortable in his or her "big" room, it is necessary to :
- Choose a solid and comfortable bed, a low bed so that the child can easily go up and down alone, banish mezzanine beds before 6 years, too dangerous.
- Choose a quality children’s mattress, because the weight of your child will double between the ages of 2 and 12, so it is important to choose a top-of-the-line mattress. Choose natural materials that are healthier for the bedroom environment and less allergenic.
- ChooseOrganic Cotton bedding without chemical treatment to ensure your child’s softness. Opt for an eco-friendly comforter and pillow with OEKO-TEX® certification.
- For the first few months in a big bed, you can secure your child’s sleep by placing the bed along one wall and installing an anti-fall barrier on the other side.
The older we get, the less sleep we need, but this sleep must be of good quality to be restorative and to ensure that we have good days full of energy. Many people suffer from sleep disorders, have difficulty falling asleep or wake up several times during the night. To avoid these worries and sleep "like a baby", start by applying some very simple rules:
- The bedroom is a place to sleep, not a place to work, watch TV or have family discussions.
- The mattress must be comfortable and of good quality, if your back hurts every morning, you may need to think aboutchanging your mattress!
- Choose a comforter that is both warm and light, without chemical treatment, a pillow that supports the cervical vertebrae well and bed linen made of natural material, healthier and purer, which will ensure a soft cocoon in which you will be happy to abandon yourself.
- Eliminate screens at least one hour before going to sleep and read! If you wake up in the middle of the night, don’t toss and turn in your bed, get up, drink a glass of water, take a walk around the house (without looking at your cell phone!) and go back to bed.
