There are many tools and products on the market that are available to aid you in this task. In today’s blog, we will be discussing a few sleep products for newborns and infants.
Arms Up Swaddle It is very natural for babies to sleep with arms up and since they like sleeping in that position, why not make them feel more secure by using the Arms Up Swaddle. The arms up position allows the baby to have access to their hands helping them to self-soothe which is an essential skill in learning to sleep. This is a great sleep conditioning product because in addition to providing them a natural and secure sleep position, it also aids in transitioning to a sleep sack from a swaddle.
Baby Shusher Shushing is an excellent technique for soothing a baby back to sleep but it can be tiring to maintain a proper shush for long periods of time which is why white noise machines were invented. However, most white noise machines were not designed to be portable but that is where the Baby Shusher truly shines. This device is great for the stroller or the car but is also a wonderful sleep product because it can be used when baby is in the crib as well.
Arms Reach Co-Sleeper Co-sleeping is very convenient because it is easy to tend to a baby’s needs when they are laying with you in the bed. However, there are also inherent risks involved with co-sleeping that can cause anxiety about using this method. The Arms Reach Co-Sleeper is a sleep product that attached to the side of your bed and provides your baby with a safe sleep area that is still easy and convenient for mom or caregiver to pick up baby when they need to be fed or soothed in the middle of the night.
Glow in the Dark Pacifier Trying to find a pacifier on the nursery floor in the middle of the night is a difficult task on its own but if you are sleep deprived and your baby won’t go to sleep without it, it can feel like an impossible task. Fortunately, MAM makes glow in the dark pacifiers that make it easy to find either in the crib or if it gets dropped on the floor. As an added bonus these pacifiers are orthodontic and can be sterilized in the microwave using the included storage case.
Newborn Baby Tracker - Round the Clock Journal Keeping track of eating, sleeping, and other important activities throughout the day and night is a very important part of understanding progress in a baby’s development. The Newborn Baby Tracker - Round the Clock Journal is an excellent sleep product that uses a charting system comprised of checkboxes and fill in the blanks to help you record and view all the day’s important information in a single view. This journal is perfect for monitoring baby’s sleep schedule and facilitates easy hand-offs to your Newborn Care Specialist or Doula.
