Keeping Baby Quiet

B
abies are generally not born with any notion that they should sleep during the night! And some don't even appreciate that they should sleep at all!!! We're here to help.

Products that help baby settle to sleep is a growing market. Not because babies sleep less nor because parents of sleepless babies are any less tired but because they have easier access to what is available. If baby won't sleep a mum (or Dad!) can still browse the internet; no longer do they have to make themselves presentable and make the effort to head for the nearest nursery retailer. They can simply order online or at least know what to go out and buy.

Getting baby to sleep is often a case of establishing the right routine; getting the message across that it is bedtime. A warm bath, a soothing massage, a calm environment. There has been quite a bit of work to suggest that baby sleeping bags help settle baby. A nightlight in the room enables mum to check on baby without needing to switch on a light.

Talking of light, one major problem with slightly older children is they often need to settle to sleep when it's still light outside. And being light means they can see their toys and want to play. A blackout blind can make a big difference. It can also help keep toddlers in bed in the early mornings when it gets light early.

A soother is another popular way of settling a baby. Babies naturally like to suck and find it comforting. So a soother will often help a baby go to sleep. But that's not all. Recent research suggests that the use of a soother reduces the risk of cot death.

Noise is another surprising help. Some babies won’t settle because it is too quiet! The womb is a very noisy place. Traditionally, mothers used to sing lullabys and music often helps, although the latest research suggests pink rather than white noise is best – a variety of sounds but with a sort of swooshing feel to it.

A soft toy (or even as one friend's child insisted – a pair of mum's silk knickers!!) can be an essential to a baby's sense of well being. One useful tip with these is that Mum should sleep with the toy for a few days, so it carries her smell – babies have a very well developed sense of smell. The second important tip (perhaps more so for retailers) is that parents should buy two identical ones. One can so easily end up lost or left behind and a baby conditioned to sleep with a comforter rarely settles without it.

Lack of sleep is a form of torture. Let's help new parents avoid it!

Lulla doll by RoRo - inspired by the importance of closeness!

Lulla doll by RoRo is developed by an Icelandic innovation company.

Lulla’s design is based on multiple scientific research that show the positive effects of closeness and kangaroo care to the development and well-being of young children and the effects that smell, sight and touch have.

Lulla aims to improve sleep, well-being, and the feeling of safety.

Lulla imitates closeness to a caregiver at rest by playing soothing sounds of a real heartbeat and breathing (pink noise) for eight hours, giving the feeling that someone is sleeping nearby when their caregiver can´t. The sound is set on a safe volume of 65dB and has a Velcro strap for safe attachment. The doll is machine washable at warm temperatures, making it safer for small babies with underdeveloped immune and respiratory systems. The fabric of the doll can absorb scent from caregivers if they keep it close to their skin before giving it to their child for added feeling of comfort and security. Lula’s soft feel, facial features and colours are also designed with purpose and care.
