A GUIDE TO SLEEPING WELL IN THE COLDER SEASON
Night time and early morning waking may be due to your baby being cold, all other factors considering. If you think about it, night temperatures drop to its lowest point sometime around 3am – 4am. As the night temperature drops so does our internal body temperature. Babies can lose body heat up to four times faster than an adult. So, it’s important to maintain your baby’s room temperature.
The recommended room temperature for a baby’s room in the cooler season is 18C – 22C. Appropriate layering is also recommended underneath any Winter TOG rated sleeping bag.
Setting The Right Temperature.. Did you know that your body’s internal temperature plays a role in making you feel drowsy? During mornings the temperature is at high levels, making you feel quite energised. This temperature dips slightly in the afternoon, making you feel a bit groggy during the day, and much more tired after the sun goes down and the body releases the hormone melatonin that helps you sleep. It’s important that the temperature to the room your baby sleeps in complements his internal temperature, so that he isn’t up and wailing in the middle of the night feeling too hot or cold. In the winter season, it’s best to maintain a temperature of around 23 to 26 degree Celsius in the room. Opt for a warm mist humidifier to place in your baby’s room, instead of a heater.
Follow a consistent, calming bedtime routine. Overstimulation in the evening can make it difficult for your baby to settle to sleep. Try bathing, cuddling, singing, playing quiet music or reading, with a clearly defined end point when you leave the room. Begin these activities before your baby is overtired in a quiet, softly lit room.
The SLEEPY HUGS is designed to be a looser fit than most other swaddle suits and is most effective in helping your baby adjust to free arms with the correct size. The SLEEPY HUGS is all about the arm span so it’s important to choose the correct size. If too big, your baby will not get the security and snug fit that they still need.
NOTE: the below measurements does not include baby’s head.
Small (3-6 months) – suitable for babies aged from 3 – 6 months, weighing 6 – 8 kg. The length of the sleep suit is approx. 65cm.
Medium (6-12 months) – suitable for babies aged from 6 – 12 months, weighing 8 – 10 kg. The length of the sleep suit is approx. 75cm.
