While the kids are sleeping, their body can produce up to 3x growth hormones, but is always dependent on how peaceful and the amount of time the baby is asleep.
When a baby entered deep sleep stage, the highest amount of growth hormones are released. So if your has a better and deeper sleep, the MORE growth hormones are released! And what you must know, growth hormones are at its best production stage during the early life. The best gift you can give to your baby is to maximize the release of growth hormones on her body and that is by providing her a better and deeper sleep.
So how much sleep does the kid needs?
Although every kid has different needs, below are some guidelines on how much sleep a kid need:
First let us define what is a GOOD NIGHT SLEEP. so I would like to share with you The ABC of Better Baby Sleep.
A regular bedtime routine
Be in bed before 9PM
Children should fall to sleep on their own.
It is very interesting to note how a bedtime routine can reduce the length of time needed to fall sleep. It can also reduced the times the baby awakes at night and even so the time needed to make the baby sleep again. The best part about it is baby’s sleep time increased and Mom’s anxiety and tension reduced to more than 50%!
And yes, the routine, the solution to our bedroom battle.. It is so easy and so fun to do.. for sure you will love this routine and will look forward to it everyday… and your kids will have the benefit of growing bigger and growing closer to your.
Johnson’s Baby Bedtime Routine has 3 steps.
Using JOHNSON´S® Baby Bedtime Bath, set the mood by giving the baby a warm bath. I this routine will be established, it will indicate or it will be a sign that it is already their bedtime. A warm bath can relax their body and you too can enjoy this by being a bit playful to your kid. If you are not sure how warm the water should be, try testing the water using your elbow. If it is too hot for your elbow, then it is too hot for the kids.
