Information on each infant was compared with information about a control infant from the same racial or ethnic group and with a similar birth weight. In the cases of SIDS, all had been reviewed by the medical examiner and autopsies had been conducted to rule out other causes of death. The study found that African American infants, who accounted for 75% of those with SIDS, have about twice the risk of SIDS as other infants, due to the fact that 58% are put to sleep on their stomach, compared to only 12% for other groups.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">In prior studies, the SIDS cases had sometimes been evaluated under a number of different standards. In the current study, researchers used standard criteria for evaluating all potential SIDS deaths. In 1992, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that infants not be placed to sleep on their stomachs, based on studies of infants in New Zealand, Australia, and the United Kingdom. <o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; mso-ansi-language: IN; mso-ascii-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi; mso-fareast-font-family: Calibri; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-hansi-theme-font: minor-latin;">"This is the largest, most comprehensive support for the American Academy of Pediatrics' 1992 and 1996 recommendations that infants be placed to sleep on their backs to reduce the risk of SIDS,” said Duane Alexander, M.D., director of the US National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), one of the study's supporters.

How much sleep is enough can expect a healthy baby need during the first months of life? Is there a point when parents should be concerned about the baby sleeping too much? The fact is that the baby is sleeping and it is normal. Here are some facts about babies and sleep can help to put your mind comfortable first-time parents.<o:p></o:p></span></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">The reality is that newborns sleep. In fact, newborns sleep a lot. While the baby's sleep patterns may not gel with the sleep patterns of the parents, there is no cause for alarm if the baby slept through most of the night and still sleep a lot during the day. Even if the baby is sleeping reach up to twenty hours per day, with short periods of time awake scattered across time, there is no reason for alarm.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">One of the reasons behind what appears to be excessive sleeping baby 'is the fact that the baby is still adjusting to the new environment, and having a bit faster growth at the same time. Many sleep for babies early is a good thing. Proper development requires that babies sleep a lot. Growth hormone is released by the pituitary gland at a faster rate when the baby is sleeping.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">As any experienced parent can attest, the first five months of a baby's life are characterized by rapid growth. It is not uncommon for babies to double their weight by the time the child has reached the age of five months. After that time, the growth will continue at a steady pace, but will start to slow down a bit over the next few months. Newborn babies sleep disturbed by waking up for food and attention now and then is normal during this time, and should be regarded as a sign of a normal infant health.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">There are new parents who are concerned that excessive sleep on the part of their infants showed some deficiencies in parenting skills. This is not the case at all. As long as parents make sure the baby in a comfortable, well fed, kept clean, and held close during intermittent periods of wakefulness, there is no shortage of that happening at all. Babies sleep because they need it, not to escape the parents are negligent or inadequate in some way. Of course, as the age of the child, the parents will play a more active role in helping children to develop sleep patterns corresponding to the rest of the household. But it will come from time to time and should not be regarded as a sign that the parents failed to do a good job.</span></div><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span><br /><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Babies sleep so much because it is part of the natural order of things. Do not worry that your child wakes up in the middle of the night because he was sleeping too much during the day. Babies have their own internal clocks that do not operate on the conventions of society. Let the baby sleep during their first month that very important for the normal development and do not worry about the baby getting too much sleep. In this case, the baby knows best.<o:p></o:p></span><br /><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><b>Related</b>:</span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><ul><li><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">-&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/12/16-things-to-help-you-sleep-help-you-Sleep-Better-and-Feel-More-Rested.html" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">16 Things To Help You Sleep: Help You Sleep Better &amp; Feel More Rested</a></li><li><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">-&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/12/baby-sleep-chart-sleeping-hours-by-age.html" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Baby Sleep Chart: Sleeping Hours by Age</a></li><li><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">-&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/12/sleep-sacks-for-babies-how-warmly--Should-You-Dress-Your-Baby-For-Winter-Sleep.html" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Sleep Sacks For Babies: How Warmly Should You Dress Your Baby For Winter Sleep?</a></li><li><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">-&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/12/help-for-pregnant-women.html" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Help For Pregnant Women</a></li><li><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">-&nbsp;</span><a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/12/why-do-babies-fight-sleep.html" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Why Do Babies Fight Sleep?</a></li></ul></div>Adminhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00124927039979360852noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6555844941109424313.post-82789292513215070352014-12-05T04:28:00.001-08:002014-12-29T20:55:45.512-08:0016 Things To Help You Sleep: Help You Sleep Better & Feel More Rested<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-0gsBT0eNl8U/VIGkA3Uny9I/AAAAAAAACk0/BH5OAAHIiRM/s1600/Things-To-Help-You-Sleep.jpg" height="340" width="640" /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></b></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><b><span lang="IN">Things To Help You Sleep </span></b><span lang="IN">- Sleep function for the rest of the body and mind after you do a lot of activities throughout the day. You will feel refreshed upon waking. However, many people claim that they have a lack of sleep because of a lot of work and unable to sleep quickly. Many things affect the quality of sleep as sleep habits, sleep schedules and daily lifestyle. Research shows that not getting enough sleep can cause weight gain, heart disease, sadness for no reason, and low immunity to disease.&nbsp;</span></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Therefore, you should have enough sleep so that you can move smoothly to the next day.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Good night's sleep is important for your health, both mental and physical. In order to have the energy that you need, and mental calm, you should get a good night's sleep. There is no miracle cure for everyone, but, before you resort to sex or alcohol, here are ten things to help you sleep like a baby that you can try this evening.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 1.

Warm milk two things, first, the milk has tryptophan in it which is a natural sleep aid, and secondly, warmth, combined with the thickness of the milk, coat your stomach so you feel full. Perhaps the oldest trick in the book to sleep.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 2.

Turkey also has a tryptophan (which is why we always feel tired after Thanksgiving dinner), and sandwiches will soothe and relax you before bed.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 3.

You have to get out and enjoy life. If you are not a lot of walking, then take meditation or yoga. If they do not appeal to you, join a softball team or take swimming lessons.</span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><b>Read also</b>:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/11/sporadic-fatal-insomnia-beginners-guide-to-sporadic-fatal-insomnia.html">Sporadic Fatal Insomnia; A Beginner’s Guide To Sporadic Fatal Insomnia</a></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 4.

I added two new pillows for the bed recently and now when I sleep, I fell asleep faster and then sleep much heavier than before. Your bed should be comfortable. After all, you can not relax if you are not comfortable.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 5.

Therefore, I have started making dinner to-do list. Before I go to sleep, I list all the things I have to do tomorrow (or the rest of the week). That way, I already have it planned and did not have to stay up all night wondering if I will ever finish it.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 6.

If someone your'e used to noise, then buy a fan for your room can certainly help you sleep like a baby. White noise, or a soft background noise, often adding a sense of comfort and help you fall asleep. Although I'm usually one of those who prefer silence, I find that I sleep better sometimes with the TV on.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 7.

I vary. If I had read or watch something scary, or if my mind would not let me relax, so I need a night light, however, if I feel fine,, but exhausted, then I want to pitch black.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Play around with the lighting in your room. Right light will help you sleep like a baby.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 8.

Is your bedroom a mess?

One thing about the bedroom is that it is your sanctuary. This is one place you can go to relax, be yourself, and feel comfortable. To be comfortable, however, it must be neat and organized. Trust me, once you get the drawer is closed, you will sleep soundly.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 9.

One thing you can try is turning on classical music radio. Classical music reminds us of bedtime we heard as a child, and sometimes it is easier for us to fall asleep like that as adults as well.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">If the music is too much, try to sound natural. I know a lot of people who listen to the songs of whales or falling rain. For me, the rain fell just makes me get up to urinate in the middle of the night, but, sometimes severe thunderstorm voice makes me sleep like a baby. Try a few different things for yourself.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><b>Read also</b>:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/11/do-i-have-sleep-apnea-sleep-apnea-signs-and-symptoms.html">Do I Have Sleep Apnea; Sleep Apnea Signs And Symptoms</a></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Things To Help You Sleep # 10.

It took a very long time after my ex to be able to fall asleep again. Even now I have trouble sleeping without feeling like something was holding me. What I have learned to do is to put two pillows together in a V shape upside down. I lie in V with a pillow pressed my back as I hugged the other pillow.

Working in <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education">Education</a>.com, I have some of the best experts in the world are willing to take my phone calls.

But what really happens is the passing of the torch. "It's the transition between you soothe him with pick him up and learn how to calm himself."

"Yes," said Diamond, "He will be hungry for one or two nights, but his body will adjust and he will learn to get her more calories during the day." Cochran and Diamond do not recommend going cold turkey. Instead, they recommend phasing out the feedings. "Choose a time in the middle of the night, for example, midnight, and committed to the fact that before the middle of the night you will not eat you your child when she was crying," said Diamond, "then every two or three nights, move back by a two-hour limit. "for example, move it to 2:00, then 4:00, then 6:00.

After that, and forever, get in somewhere between 5-25 minutes, right at the peak of the baby cries. Before you open the door to the baby's room, listening to the quality of the cry-if it deescalating or start and stop, start your baby to self-soothe.

If your baby is older than that and still uses a pacifier, the challenge is getting to the point where she does not need you to help. "If he can find a dot and put it into his own mouth, I'm fine with it," Cochran said, "But it's not okay for you to have to come at night to put it in for him." Start working on putting it in his hands to himself and not in his mouth. And have a plan for phasing out completely. They do not recommend doing it at the same time as the rest of sleep training, though! One thing at a time.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><b>Read also</b>:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.familyhealthlife.org/2014/12/newborn-baby-checklist.html">Newborn Baby Checklist</a></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">7.

But it is important to have realistic expectations. Not only will you probably do not make your baby stop crying, but crying is likely to boost, not reduce, because you refuse to do what you want it baby, namely to pick him or feed him. The entry point is to say "I understand you're upset, but I know you're fine. There's nothing wrong. It's not that I do not hear you. But I know you can do this and I'm here to support you. "parents often say," It does not help-I made it worse by going in.

"You can see them, talk to them, tell them you love them," said Diamond, "Eye contact is fine. PATS is fine. Some children do not like to be touched or talked to, so know your child tempermentally" , but if you think it will help, do not hesitate to do so, as long as you do not pick it up.

There is a contest going on. Your baby said, "I will cry to make you do what you want to do," said Diamond. And when you start sleep training, you change all the rules. That is why it is important to keep what you do consistently, so he knows what to expect. "Pick him sometimes but not others, or rocking him to sleep when you run out of your mind, but not at other times, it is not fair to him and it really made things tough on him," said Diamond. Once he knows, "Okay, I can get you to visit me, but I will not shake or treated for sleep," he can learn how to calm himself.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">How to Get a Breastfed Baby to Sleep Through the Night<o:p></o:p></span></b></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></b></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">Breast milk is more easily digested than formula, which makes baby breastfeeding breastfeeding wanting more than formula-fed infants.

In fact, sleepiness can be seen as symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity- (ADHD). Children often act as if they are not tired, refused to sleep and be hyper as the night progresses.

Most people do not know that they are experiencing these events unless they are told or do a test to confirm sleep apnea. Children who snore may be at risk for or suffering from sleep apnea, which is why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that recently pediatricians ask about and screen for sleep disorders in children in both routine visits.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="IN" style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">If you suspect your child is not getting enough sleep, it is important to talk with your child's doctor. If there is an underlying sleep disorders or other medical conditions play, your doctor may refer you to a sleep specialist to discuss treatment options.
