NIGHT TIME ROUTINE 💤
With both of our kids, me and my husband, have noticed that the best possible way of having good night of sleep and time or each other, is perfectly developed bed time routine.
Well rested baby = happy baby 👶🏼
Also, since my last post about Eiva’s troubled sleeping, we have done a lot of research (THANK YOU to all of you who responded) that even toddlers need to have a perfect daily routine in order for them to rest well at night.
Think about it- babies don’t know what time it is, babies don’t care if it’s light out, or dark 🤷🏻♀️
They need something to ‘tell’ them- “it’s time to hit the sheets” 🛌💤
Our bed time routine for both of the kids (new born - 8 months) is the same.
- after 18:00 no more naps
- around 19:30 “naked time” 👶🏼
- 20:00 bath time - pyjama - falling to sleep while feeding (not asleep) - falling asleep in their crib (with night light)
Other thing which I think helps- no light at night 💡 not even a little, because they get used to it, and it helps them to wake up in the middle of the night, after which it can be troubling to put them back to sleep again. the night light with music from @chicco turns off after 30 minutes and is turned on again only for nap time during the day.
Only times when Marats is having trouble to sleep through the night, and the only way to sleep is to let him breastfeed, is because I have ate something that upsets his tummy 😔 (for him it’s dairy and chocolate) 🥛🍫

We usually speak about the importance of the nutrition and the training, but we don’t mention a lot the far more important thing -sleeping. So let’s talk about it.
Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.
Sleep deficiency also increases the risk of obesity. For example, one study of teenagers showed that with each hour of sleep lost, the odds of becoming obese went up. Sleep deficiency increases the risk of obesity in other age groups as well.
Sleep helps maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make you feel hungry (ghrelin) or full (leptin). When you don't get enough sleep, your level of ghrelin goes up and your level of leptin goes down. This makes you feel hungrier than when you're well-rested.
Sleep also affects how your body reacts to insulin, the hormone that controls your blood glucose (sugar) level. Sleep deficiency results in a higher than normal blood sugar level, which may increase your risk for diabetes.
Sleep also supports healthy growth and development. Deep sleep triggers the body to release the hormone that promotes normal growth in children and teens. This hormone also boosts muscle mass and helps repair cells and tissues in children, teens, and adults. Sleep also plays a role in puberty and fertility.
Your immune system relies on sleep to stay healthy. This system defends your body against foreign or harmful substances. Ongoing sleep deficiency can change the way in which your immune system responds. For example, if you're sleep deficient, you may have trouble fighting common infections.
We hope that you’ll have sweet dreams this night and the every one next. Sleep well TeamFitt!!
