How to help your baby sleep well? How to help him integrate day / night rhythms? Should we sleep in the dark or propose a night light to her baby? The point with Dr. Marie-Josèphe Challamel, pediatrician and specialist of the sleep of the child, to promote a good sleep in the child.
Babies are not afraid of the dark, so it is better that night is synonymous with complete black.
When feeding her child at night, I also advise not to light the room so as not to wake it up and keep the alternation day / night. It is very important to mark these rhythms by means of social synchronizers, “time givers” (regularity of meals, times of exchange, sleeping times and rising times).
So, in the morning, I recommend opening the shutters at regular times, even if the child is still sleeping. During his naps during the day, it is better that the child is in a room not too dark. In the same way, the walks must be done in the light of day, even if the little one sleeps. And mother-child interactions must always be more important during the day.
Pilot and afraid of the dark
From 2-3 years, children often express fear of the dark. One can then leave a wall night light – but the intensity of it should not exceed 40 lux. The ideal is that the door of the room is slightly open on a lighted corridor.
