Do you know newborns sleep between 14-17 hours a day?
From infants to toddlers, and creche-aged kids, every child needs an adequate amount of sleep, else they become cranky.
Moreover, kids who sleep well have better focus, and enjoy overall mental and physical well-being.
Are you struggling to get your baby to fall asleep?
Check out these sleep-time essentials that can help your kids to doze off to dreamland easily:
1. A baby crib
While many parents sleep with their kids for the first few months, a crib is a comfy and best place to make little ones sleep faster and longer.
The baby crib must meet all the safety standards like:
- Check for any broken corners
- Look for other issues like chipped paint, loose or missing screws, and other hardware issues
- Never place a crib near the window
- Don’t place a crib near hanging cords or drapes
- No stuffed toys in the crib leaving little room for the baby’s movements
2. Comfortable mattress
A cosy, flat, and snuggly mattress can help your child get enough sleep.
There are some points to consider when buying a mattress for your baby:
- Certified and non-toxic
- No more than 2 fingers’ width of space between the mattress and the bed end
- Fits the cot tightly without leaving spaces
Choosing the right mattress not only ensures good sleep to your baby, but also prevents sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Discover non-toxic and safe baby mattresses in Singapore from RaaB™ Family.
