Dealing with sleep deprivation

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies

SleepingMaking sure you're well rested after a baby is born is an interesting proposition - it certainly seems impossible in those first few days - but there are ways to ensure that everyone gets their fair share of sleep.

Lamaze.com offers a number of tips to help you get your sleep groove back:

  •  Make your sleeping arrangements based on where and how all of you can get the best sleep.

  •  Think about sleep on a 24-hour continuum, with daytime sleep just as important as nighttime sleep.

  •  Learn how to breastfeed lying down so that you can rest as you feed.

With these hints and a little creativity, you can deal with sleep deprivation more effectively and maybe even catch up on lost sleep!
