Due to the immature brain development, low excitability of cerebral cortex and nerve cells, poor endurance and easy fatigue of newborns, the total sleep time of newborns is longer, and the sleep time and times are in direct proportion to the baby’s age. The younger the age, the more sleep time and times. This is what we often see in a day of newborns in addition to feeding, changing diapers Besides bathing time, there are basically 20-22 hours of sleep.
According to some statistics, 90% of the baby’s day in the first week of birth is spent in sleep. Sleep can protect the baby from external interference, continuously improve the physiological functions of the body, and get full development. This is the normal and physiological self-protection phenomenon of the baby, protecting the baby’s fragile brain cells from excessive external stimulation.
So that’s why some babies, in order to meet their sleep requirements, even when they are suckling, will sleep for a while.
Breast feeding is a labor for the baby. In addition, the baby nestles in the mother’s arms when feeding, which is warm, comfortable and safe. The baby can really enjoy a good sleep environment, but the sleep at this time is often not a complete quiet sleep. When you pull out the nipple or nipple, the baby will wake up.
