PARK OUTINGS CAN HELP TIRE BABY OUT!
I never thought that going to the park would be a sleep remedy for my little one, but I have found it to be a natural sleep aide for my baby. In fact, a daily dose of fresh air is said to not only assist your baby in catching a good night’s rest, but help him/her to sleep longer.Our daughter is one and not quite walking yet, though she takes about four or five steps on her own before deciding to get back on her knees. She’s not a very big girl, as at her first month check up she was a mere 7 percentile. As she grew older, she remained at about 10 percentile for almost the entire year. At her first-year check up she weighed in at 17 pounds, which brought her to the 15th percentile, but still that’s not very big.
As a mother, I am always worried. I look at my daughter and compare her size to other babies her age. But, her doctor says she’s fine and she will likely be very petite. Although our daughter is little, she has a ton of energy and eats all the time. She burns it off quickly by crawling up stairs and walking by holding on to things, from couches to walls to whatever she can get her hands on. But when she’s at the park she gets especially worn out. Every time we take our little girl to the park, she sleeps especially well that night. I try taking her to the park daily, because as a parent when you find something that works you should run with it.
Before I had my daughter I was a mommy to 2 dogs, and I still am. I noticed they do better when we walk them and socialize them with other dogs, and so I would frequently take my two four-legged babies to the dog park. Our daughter of course requires the same type of outings. She even squeals when we’re heading out the door because she knows we’re going somewhere fun. Our daughter is very active, so I have to keep her moving about. If I don’t, then her sleep is affected.
Little ones need continuous stimulation to not only help with their growing minds but also their bodies. They not only need exercise but practice learning how to move and use their limbs. As you can imagine this can be very tiring, and not just for the babies but Mom and Dad as well. Help your little one sleep by introducing plenty of physical activity early on to help them regulate their circadian rhythms, develop a lifestyle revolving around fitness and realize restful sleep for both you and your partner.
