Baby Sleep and the Seasons: How sleep changes with shorter days

2020 has had its fair share of shakeups (to say the least). Now that we’re settling into winter, there may be another change you’ve noticed recently: your baby’s sleeping habits. When the seasons change — or when the dreaded Daylight Saving Time forces us to lose daylight — it can disrupt Baby’s sleep. Why, exactly? We’re sharing some main reason sleep changes with the seasons and how you can adjust so everyone gets the sleep they need.

Less daylight = earlier bedtimes

If your bedtime routine has remained the same but your baby is nodding off earlier, you can thank their circadian rhythm, which is a natural process that regulates our sleep based on the light. But with less daylight in the fall and winter, your baby is likely going to sleep much sooner. 

While an earlier bedtime may not seem like an issue at first, it usually means earlier wake-up times. That, of course, can impact your or the entire family’s sleep. So, how do you adjust? In a word: slowly. Start Baby’s bedtime routine 15 minutes later each night until you reach a new desired bedtime — typically an hour to reflect the time change. And when summer rolls around again, you can make the same adjustment, but start bedtime earlier instead. 

Disrupted naptimes 

While the extra nighttime hours may have the rest of us feeling sluggish, you may notice your baby starting to sleep longer through the night. That’s because they’re not battling the heightened activity that comes with summer, like lighter evenings, later bedtimes for the rest of the family, or hotter temperatures. However, if they’re getting more sleep at night, that can start to impact their naps during the day.

If that’s the case, you may need to adjust your routines a bit. While a baby sleeping in is usually a gift for any parent, skipping out on naptimes is not. Try to wake Baby up at the same time each day so there’s room for a nap that day. The goal here is to make sure they get the same amount of sleep each day, but not all at night. 

Colder temperatures

Even though we might not like the colder temperatures outside, we actually sleep better with them inside. That goes for Baby too! Health experts say cooler temperatures — around 65 degrees — help us sleep better through the night.

Yes, it may feel colder in your home, but that can actually help Baby get much-needed deep sleep. If they’re too hot, their sleep will likely be more disrupted. And, of course, we know that blankets and pillows are dangerous to put in the crib with them. The takeaway? When it gets cooler outside, don’t overdress your baby or put blankets in their cribs. All you have to do is ensure the temperature isn’t too hot or too cold — but just right.

6 Reasons Your Family Needs a Sleep Coach

A sleepless baby can lead to sleepless nights for the entire family. But instead of feeling discouraged, you can feel empowered, educated, and — above all — well-rested. How? With the help of an experienced sleep coach! Here are six reasons why you and your family should consider hiring one.

1. You’re sleep-deprived

Most parents with newborn or young children expect to be really tired, but they may not understand the long-term consequences. On top of always feeling fuzzy and drowsy, a lack of sleep can negatively affect your mood, memory, and concentration. Over a longer period of time, sleep deprivation can also increase your risk of future health issues like high blood pressure and diabetes. The short of it? Your sleep is just as important as baby’s, and a sleep coach can help with just that.

2. Your baby won’t sleep through the night

Not sleeping through the night is expected for the few first months with a newborn. But if your baby isn’t trained to sleep through the night, their sleep issues can persist for years. Teaching a baby (and yourself!) early on in life — with the help of a trusted sleep coach — can ensure a full night’s sleep for everyone.

3. Your baby keeps waking up

Another hurdle for parents is that the baby may be a good sleeper at first but then suddenly start waking up during the night. When that happens, it can be hard to figure out why it’s happening and how to get your baby back to sleep. A sleep coach can help you understand what your baby needs when they wake up, so you’re not left guessing and, ultimately, frustrated.

4. You can’t soothe baby

Getting your baby to sleep or getting them back to sleep can be incredibly challenging for parents. What do they want? What do they need? Do they feel okay? What can I do to get them back to sleep? These are all typical questions for parents to ask. But with a sleep coach like Rachelle, you’ll actually have the answers. Your personalized plan includes learning about your baby’s digestive system, nervous system, and sleep cycles so you can soothe Baby back to sleep any time, anywhere.

5. You think it’s ‘just a phase’

Parents of children can all relate to being tired. But just because it’s a shared (and expected) experience, it doesn’t have to become a norm for you. Don’t shrug off your sleep struggles as ‘just a phase’ or something your kids will grow out of. With a sleep coach, the only phase you and your baby will know is a full night’s sleep.

6. You feel discouraged

Countless articles, videos, mixed information, the cry-it-out method…if you’ve tried it all and still can’t get your baby to sleep, it can feel incredibly discouraging. But there’s still hope (and help)! Rachelle doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach; she creates a personalized plan for every family and baby. So if you feel like you’ve exhausted every option, remember there’s still an option that’s tailored exactly to your needs.
