Babies And Circadian Rhythms

If you are expecting your first baby, it is important to understand what his/her sleep patterns will be and how they are affected by day and night. As babies age, they need less sleep throughout the day. The times where a baby is alert usually only lasts for two or three hours, at one month of age they sleep for over fifteen hours. By the time they reach six months of age, they tend to sleep between twelve and fourteen hours a day.

When children are born they have no natural circadian rhythm. Instead their sleep patterns are based on smaller ‘ultradian’ cycles which will repeat a number of times within a day. When a new born is just 2-8 weeks old, it will sleep for around four hours then awaken for thirty minutes, although this pattern is in constant flux.

Many new parents find their baby’s sleep patterns difficult, but the last thing you want to do is try and change them. The schedule of sleep that your baby is on isn’t up to you. By trying to change his schedule to fit your needs, you may cause his pattern to become even more inconsistent and cause him to take longer to develop the twenty-four-hour circadian rhythm. A circadian rhythm is one that consists of being awake for twelve hours and then sleeping for twelve hours.

Scientists have recently discovered a natural ingredient of breast milk which makes it different from formula. Interestingly breast milk created in the daytime contains less sleep encouraging nucleotides than that created at night. Nucleotides within the breast milk increased when nighttime approached showing how they follow their own circadian rhythm.

It is important that during the day you allow your home to be at a normal noise level and that you engage your baby with eye contact, which will help them get to know what makes daytime different from the night. Eye contact is very exciting for babies. Keeping eye contact with your baby will have a physical effect, blood pressure will rise, the heart will beat faster and your baby will awaken fully.

As night time approaches, limit the amount of stimulation give the the baby. It is also helpful to initiate a series of pre-bedtime rituals to let your baby know it is almost time for sleep. When your child reaches three months old, he should be able to turn two sleep cycles into one period of unbroken sleep. You may run into the issue that the cycle doesn’t happen at night. Night sleep gets much more routine once the baby turns four months old.

Being a Solid Parent

Sometimes it is one of the hardest things for people to accomplish in their life to be solid parents that have kids who respect and like them at the same times. You want to help them make the decisions that are right for their life and helping support them to forge a bright future. You need to hammer the facts in that they need to stay dedicated to what they enjoy in life if they want to pursue that task. Sometimes tasks are hard for a reason because they are very rewarding. You should try to encourage your kids to challenge themselves when they can. Because doing things that are challenging can make you better at doing things in the long run.

You should always consider the consequences of not being strict with your kids. If you are too lenient your children may lose respect for you. You always want to try and be a friend with your kids but when possible you need to try to keep their respect, because you will need this if you ever need to help them make hard decisions. If your children do not respect you they will always think less of the decisions you want them to make. It is a tricky balance of maintaining their respect without making them angry. Because sometimes when you try to hard to gain your child’s respect you could end up being rude and making them angry.

It all comes down to the way you choose to communicate with your children when you want to communicate things to them. If you are very aggressive about how you communicate with them this may not be the best method available to you. You should practice your communication skills frequently if you want to be successful with talking to your children. Making use of chat rooms is a perfect way to polish your communication skills at any time of day. I use Bubble Camsand Hehe Chat frequently to just perfect my method of communicating to other individuals.

In the end you will be surprised at what you can achieve if you get good at communicating with other people and communicating with your children. The way you interact with others influences the outcome of almost every situation you can encounter in life so it is important to know how to handle yourself. Hopefully you put in the time to practice and you will become a very solid parent.

Telling The Children About Your Divorce

family-vacation-packing-list-resize

I have been working with a amazing group of parents who are all going through a divorce and one of their main worries was how to tell the children about what was going to happen and what to actually say to them.

Children naturally fear that they will lose one of their parents in a divorce or that their parents will abandon them. They also fear the changes and disruptions that a divorce will inevitably bring to their family and they often blame themselves.

One of the key things I ask parents to do is to sit down and to work out together the answer to this question:

* What are the key messages you want to convey to your children?

I ask them to write on a piece of paper their child’s name and to put it on the floor and as they step onto it imagine they are looking at the situation from the point of view and perception of their child.

Then I ask them to answer these questions through the eyes and ears of their child:

* What do you see and hear around you at the moment?

* How do you feel?

How could Dad and Mum make you feel better – what could they do or say?

Then I ask parents to draw a circle and put in 7 spokes like a wheel and to write in the wheel 7 reassurances and guarantees that they can honestly give to their children that will help their child cope with the enormous changes that are coming.

We work on how both parents can agree on what to say before they talk to the children. This helps to avoid mixed messages which confuse, upset and really distress children greatly.

We look at the benefits and advantages of telling the children together and we work on overcoming the “blame” mentality and the feeling that it must be someone’s fault. We look at how to avoid the children feeling that they have to take sides.

We look at taking the emotional charge out of telling the children and help each parent gain more control over their distressing feelings and emotions during this difficult moment.

It is certainly very worthwhile and positive to stop and step back from your current situation to gain clarity, direction and certainty in the decisions you are taking towards handling the difficult and painful area of divorce or separation more confidently.

If the couple agrees to attempt to have a baby boy, then both parties need to do their parts.

2. During intercourse, the couple should aim to make sure that the woman orgasms as this helps increase alkaline levels in the reproductive environment.
