The newborn shudders in a dream: why and what to do
With the arrival of a new family member in the house, the young mother's dream immediately becomes very sensitive, because now she listens to every sound and movement of the baby. Often she develops excitement if a newborn baby shudders in a dream.
Recently, the newly born baby is quite often shuddered in a dream and in many cases it is quite normal. After all, the crumbs at this time is just beginning the adaptation period to a new life outside the maternal tummy. He is now a tiny but independent organism.
Let's try to understand, dear readers, why the newborn winches in a dream, whether it is necessary for the mother to worry about what is happening; why such jerks may appear; is it worth it for parents to pay attention to them and somehow eliminate such manifestations.
Sleeping like a baby
Many of us adults have repeatedly heard this expression. However, not everyone knows that the sleep of a newborn baby is not at all as strong and serene as it is customary to talk about. In the first weeks of life, the baby gets used to a new schedule for him and does not always fall asleep when he wants mom and dad. When a child grows up, problems of a different kind appear. The slightest manifestations of discomfort, such as air in the ventricle after another feeding or sudden colic, can instantly destroy all the mothers' efforts regarding attempts to put the baby to sleep. There are situations when the parents get the impression that their chagushko does not sleep at all, in extreme cases, the dream lasts no more than a few minutes. In this case, adults can only be amazed at how their heir manages to sleep.
Sleep, our baby, sleep, our baby doll ...
The dream of a newly born baby is fundamentally different in its components from the sleep of his parents. We, adults, live most of the night time in the phase of deep sleep, while in the tiny babies in the process of rest the phases of superficial sleep are subject to change. Each cycle of the baby has a duration of approximately 50 minutes, and in an adult this time is from 90 to 150 minutes, that is, from one and a half to two and a half hours.
Surely many people know that after an adult falls asleep, he immediately goes into a phase of deep sleep. At kids all occurs absolutely in another: for the first half an hour at them the phase of a superficial dream lasts, because of what karapuziku very simply to wake up. In this regard, advice to young mothers: right after the baby falls asleep, do not put it in the crib, it's better to shake it for a few minutes (about 20-30). Otherwise, there may be a situation in which the newborn shudders in a dream. The kid can instantly wake up and open his eyes. Mom will have to start all over again.
At night, Mom should not, without special reasons, wake up her sun to feed or change a diaper. The child will wake up immediately. But how quickly to put it?
A newborn shudders in a dream at the moment when it begins to fall asleep, or when the next phases of sleep alternate: slow and fast. The body of the carapace is ready to dump all the emotional and psychological experiences of the crumb that he was able to accumulate during the day. Thanks to this, the baby can quickly fall asleep and rest in peace.
The child's nervous system is a rather complex step-by-step system of certain signals that can be responsible for every movement and action of the child, for any emotion. An adult can effortlessly coordinate each of his movements or control any emotions. But the baby develops not only while in the tummy of the mother, but also after when it appears on this light. But at birth, at his disposal, there is only a certain set of nerve cells. But their harmonious functioning and perfectly organized work begins at a time when the baby's body begins to grow and develop.
What is the importance of the tranquility and serenity of a youngster in a dream?
The answer to this question is that the children's body is growing intensively in a dream - just at this time, the growth hormone is actively produced. Periodically, the newborn shudders in a dream, often awakens and tears begin? A young mother should not immediately panic, because shaking and twitching during sleep is a perfectly normal physiological phenomenon (in medicine this is called myoclonia). And the explanation is very simple: the child's dream has its own characteristics.
When the superficial phase lasts, the newborn often shudders in a dream, his facial expressions undergo some changes. The adult person is in a fast phase of sleep a small amount of time, so that similar phenomena occur with him much less often than in the youngster, and they do not last long. It was Mother Nature that came up with this order of things, because during the fast phase of sleep the brain ripens. As a rule, these twitchings continue until the child reaches the age of five. After that, he sleeps much calmer. So the newborn shudders in a dream because of its high emotionality and hyperactivity.
Differences between the dream of the baby and his parents
Very many mothers notice that during sleep her chudushko always or sometimes shudders. Since this behavior is unconscious, each of them begins to be alerted involuntarily. But do not worry immediately, because such a state can not always talk about some pathological changes in the baby's body. So why does the newborn shudder in a dream?
The first three months after the birth of each karapuz undergoes adaptation after a quiet, quiet and warm intrauterine life in the tummy of my mother. His nervous system is now learning to perceive and analyze light, different flavors, touches, sounds. All the new things that a baby learns in a day are gradually processed and fixed by his brain just when the child is asleep. Just during the transition of the crumb to the deep phase of falling asleep due to involuntary contractions of the muscles, the newborn baby shudders in a dream. Therefore, a variety of games and familiarity with new toys is more appropriate to spend with the kids in the first half of the day.
Causes causing flinches
It is impossible to know with absolute certainty what exactly a newborn baby is dreaming of. But the fact that he knows how to dream, is proved by specialists. One can only assume that not all the dreams of a little child are associated with pleasant experiences for him.
During the first three to four months of life, many crumbs feel increased gas formation, and with it - pain in the tummy. When gases leave, this can cause the baby's anxiety or flinch.
When the baby leaves urine or feces when he sleeps, the temperature rises under the diaper, which periodically leads to a start.
If the baby has a pathology of the nervous system, then his superhigh excitability is likely to manifest not only in sleep. Other symptoms may be noticeable. Mom should pay close attention, if during crying the kid has a chin, he is crying and blue.
A convincing reason for contacting a doctor is the fact that if the youngster cries for a long time after shuddering, If in a dream shudders more than ten times; if there is causeless crying, followed by a long sleep.
Pills from anxiety
To parents did not have to constantly answer the question of why a newborn shudders in a dream, you need to use some rules for a comfortable sleep of a crumb:
- do not overload the baby with physical exertion before bedtime (any positive emotions should be felt during the first half of the day, 60 minutes before daytime sleep);
- an excellent idea will be to read an interesting fairy tale;
- in the room where the child sleeps, there must always be fresh air;
- pajamas should not squeeze the body of a crumb, prevent it from turning in a dream and made of natural materials;
- bathing procedures are best to plan not a period of time just before putting the baby to sleep, because it is known that vodichka has an excellent effect on the nervous system of the baby, and he quickly falls asleep.
This is not so difficult, but the result is tangible. Be healthy and happy!
