The importance of sleep for new mothers

As shown by recent research, new mothers who remain healthy after childbirth are those that allow a nap when they feel the need to sleep.

The importance of sleep for new mothers

Daily naps: a panacea for mother and son!

Many new in form mothers said to take a nap of 2-3 hours every day for the first 6 months of child’s life, especially avoiding to:

  • Clean the house.
  • Do shopping.
  • Cooking.

When the baby sleeps, the new mother should sleep too.

It seems that the secret to staying in shape after childbirth is very simple: When the baby sleep, even the new mother should sleep.

These daily naps allow the mother to cuddle with baby and create a strong emotional bond, day after day.

The same sleep-wake cycle creates a deep bond of trust.

Being on the same sleep-wake cycle during the first months of a child’s life also helps to establish a relationship of trust between mother and child.

Mothers who return to work a few weeks after giving birth, can’t get the benefit of these daytime naps with their baby.

The brain waves and hormone production.

Some types of brain waves, known as delta-waves and theta-waves are generally accessible only with a deep sleep, that stimulates the brain to produce hormones such as:

  • Melatonin.
  • Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA).
  • Growth hormone.
  • Sex hormone.

A matter of head. Or perhaps brain.

The deep sleep allows the brain to restore the supply of neurotransmitters (complex molecules that have the function to activate or inhibit the neurons) that allow the cells of the nervous system to communicate between themselves and with the rest of the system of our body.

Well, dear new mum: is it not worth sleeping with your child the best way possible?

Facilitate the sleep should be a priority because at least one third of the time he spends in direct contact with the mattress, maybe with you. Look for a specialized mattress dealer to test the perfect mattress for you and your son!
