    What Are the Best Infant Sleep Cues?

    What Are the Best Infant Sleep Cues?

    First of all, everyone uses sleep cues, not just infants. I personally hate the foam pillows used in most hotels, but give me a nice feather pillow—and some rain on the roof white noise—and I’m out like a light. The point is…we’re all creatures of habit. During the first few months of your baby’s life, the best infant sleep cues are those that mimic the calming sensations of the womb. Things such as swaddling, shushing and sucking—all part of the...

    Where Should Baby Sleep?

    Where Should Baby Sleep?

    One of the first questions you have to answer after you give birth is, Where should baby sleep? A bassinet? Crib? Cosleeper? Your bed? It’s a decision that deserves some serious thought because it will affect your sleep, your baby’s sleep and your baby’s safety. Hands down, having your newborn baby sleep in your room is the way to go! It’s cozier and much more convenient.

    How Much Should a Newborn Sleep?

    How Much Should a Newborn Sleep?

    How much should a newborn sleep? Babies may be too short to compete in the Olympics, but they definitely hold the world’s record for championship sleeping. With an average of 16 hours a day (and, rarely, up to 20!), newborn infants rack up more snoozing than at any other time in life. Yet this can be a fooler! You’d think that 16 hours of baby sleep would leave you tons of free time every day. But newborn sleep is shredded...

    How 'State Control' May Impact Your Baby's Sleep

    How 'State Control' May Impact Your Baby's Sleep

    “My one-month-old is so much fun to watch,” said Britta. “Bobby’s little lip quivers when he’s upset. He’s clearly trying to hold back the flood of tears, and he can go a long time making a silly meow-type cry before he loses the battle and goes ballistic.” If temperament is the sea your little one sails on, state control tells you how steady (or jumpy) his boat is. Can your little on stay asleep despite mild hunger and jarring noise?...

    Why Are Yawns Contagious?

    Why Are Yawns Contagious?

    Why do we yawn when we see babies yawn? The phenomenon is called contagious yawning, and it's very odd indeed. Dogs yawn…and cats and monkeys…and even three-month-old fetuses (but not chickens). An average yawn lasts four to six seconds. We yawn more when we’re tired or bored. And trying to make it stop usually just makes another yawn pop right out. But surprisingly, we have no idea why we yawn. It’s a big medical mystery. We also have no idea why...
