Did you know that babies spend around half their time asleep? This precious sleep is so important for their mood and their development too! Mummy’s number one choice with me when I was a baby was Pampers, which is why we are so excited that Pampers are launching a brand new innovative nappy.
Pampers are introducing New Pampers Baby-Dry nappies which feature a revolutionary nappy design with 3 Absorbing Channels and unique Micro Pearls™ that distribute wetness more evenly and lock it away for up to 12 hours. There is less wet bulk in the morning, so your little one can wake up smiling!
Mummy, and other UK parents agree:
New Pampers Baby-Dry has been recommended by 88% of UK parents *
New Pampers Baby-Dry are also been BritMums Bloggers Approved, Mumsnet Rated, Mother & Baby Tried and Tested and 90% of Netmums mums would recommend New Pampers Baby-Dry.
Your little one can get a good nights sleep whilst New Pampers Baby-Dry works as hard as possible to lock in wetness, so you can say goodbye to a wet bulky nappy and hello to a dry night’s sleep.
To celebrate the launch of New Pampers Baby-Dry, Pampers are working with baby sleep expert Jo Tantum – who is a member of the Pampers Love, Sleep & Play panel and has 25 years’ experience helping hundreds of families to achieve a peaceful night’s sleep! Jo has identified 5 sleep typologies that may help you to understand your baby’s sleep habits and needs better – so, is your little one a Starfish, Skylark, Sloth, Owl or Meerkat sleeper? Take a look and let me know using #PampersBabyDry!
When your baby sleeps in the same position on their back with legs and arms out. They also wake up often and regularly, but they don’t go back to sleep easily after you intervene with a sleep prop – which they need to get to sleep!
Jo’s Tip – A muslin square, knotted in the middle. Tuck it down your top before giving it to baby so it smells of you and comforts them. Also, try and teach your baby to fall asleep on their own gently. Start in the day, at nap times, watching for tired signs, then settle them for a sleep in their room.
These are the babies that wake up early in the morning, singing and shouting, and refuse to go back to sleep whatever you try!
Jo’s Tip – Use wave sounds. This can be a sleep App or sound machine. Keep it on continually while baby is asleep, so when they come into a light sleep phase it soothes them back to sleep. Total blackout is also vital – remember that babies can’t tell the time and don’t know it’s 5am! If your baby wakes up early, try and respond to them as though it’s still night, rather than creating a habit of early waking.
These little ones love sleep and can sleep anywhere and everywhere – lucky you! But what happens when they wake up? You will know they are having a growth or developmental spurt or they are teething or feeling unwell.
Jo’s Tip – Increase feeding time by 5 minutes if breast feeding and by 30ml if bottle feeding. If your baby is close to 6 months old, they may need weaning.
Owl baby’s go to bed late and then wake up in the night. They’re wide awake for long periods and can’t get back to sleep!
Jo’s Tip – A Sleep Fest! Allow your baby to sleep for 3 hours during the day to reset their internal clock. Babies need lots of sleep and it’s a myth that if you don’t give them naps, they will be so tired that they’ll sleep through the night.
They stand up, move around trying to get comfortable all night and they don’t want to sleep. They’re late to bed and early to rise.
Jo’s Tip – Wind Down Time. Establish a calming bedtime routine with a warm bath, a bedtime story and a feed. Your baby is overtired and so they will thrash around trying to get comfortable just like we do. They will have lots of energy around bedtime and early in the morning, as their bodies and minds are overstimulated.
Mummy has been thinking about what sort of baby I was – and she thinks I was a Sloth! I was a really good sleeper – it is as I have got older that things have gone off track a little!
