How parents can re-establish sleep patterns after having children
Have your little ones unwittingly disrupted your sleep cycles? The period of interrupted sleep after having children may mean you find it difficult to re-establish your sleep patterns, even once your children are sleeping well.
Sleep training - for grown ups!
While there’s really very little that’s more joyous than bringing a baby into the world and raising children, physical and emotional exhaustion can be hard to cope with. Just when you think you’re settling into some well-earned shut-eye, the baby monitor wakes you abruptly, or your alarm goes off before you've barely shut your eyes again.
According to one study, some parents can experience up to six years’ of sleep deprivation. On a more positive note, the study did find that parents gradually saw an improvement in their sleep as their firstborn grew. But the worries, stress and responsibilities of parenthood can still affect long-term sleep patterns.
By having a SleepHub® device at your bedside, you can restore your natural sleep patterns and improve the quality of your sleep.
The need for better sleep
After being “on” all day, juggling family, kids, and work demands, you may find it hard to disconnect enough to rest well at night. Simply lying down in bed may bring spinning thoughts of to-do lists front of mind, making it hard to switch off. But while getting enough sleep might seem difficult for some, it’s importance shouldn’t be understated.
Almost a quarter (22%) of parents surveyed by Netmums in conjunction with The Children’s Sleep Charity said their relationship with their partner was negatively affected by tiredness – short tempers can lead to increased arguments. More than a third (35%) of parents describe themselves as regularly being “exhausted” and more than half (59%) admit they’ve lied about how well they cope with sleep deprivation.
Related issues that could arise from not getting enough sleep can include:
- Impaired judgment
- Verbal fluency
- Memory loss
- Alertness and reaction time
- Feeling groggy throughout the day
- Weakened immune system
Fortunately, years of research and development have led to a solution that can help you, and all parents, get the sleep you need. SleepHub® is ready to help you get past these sleep problems, so you can enjoy better quality of life - simply by getting the sleep you need.
Parents: Get your sleep back
With your baby sleeping for short naps and often at irregular times, we know it can be difficult to get that good period of rest you crave. SleepHub® is a science-powered sleep aid designed to restore natural sleep using a unique and highly effective combination of science, sound and technology to target the underlying principal causes of poor sleep patterns.
In a clinical study of SleepHub® in people experiencing insomnia, 92% of participants noticed that the SleepHub® device positively influenced their sleep:
- How long they slept: Increase in the number of hours slept: 2 hours 35 minutes
- How long they stayed awake: 1 hour 16 minutes less
- How often they woke up during the night: 55% decrease in the number of times woken up.
How SleepHub® helps parents get the quality sleep you need
SleepHub® has different sleep modes which you can choose to get that much-needed sleep, in-line with your child’s sleep patterns by getting the best quality sleep when you need it most.
The SleepHub® modes are:
- Deep Sleep
- Easy Sleep
- Fall Asleep
- Power Nap
Easy Sleep, for example, is a mode that can help you enjoy natural sleep when you have a set amount of time to get the rest you need. So if your child typically sleeps for four hours at a time, you can use Easy Sleep to help you sleep at the same time.
Power Nap is another SleepHub® mode that could prove useful for parents. This mode allows you to choose from a 30-, 40- or 60-minute nap, perfect for allowing you to get some much-needed rest when your child naps or when you have somebody else on hand to watch your child while you get some rest.
Additional modes including Deep Sleep and Fall Asleep are configured to help you achieve full nights of natural sleep. As children grow older and reach the age where they don’t wake up regularly or no longer require night time feeds, you can switch to these modes to help you revert to natural sleep patterns.
As a parent, you shouldn’t accept bad sleep as a fact of life. If you’ve tried to apply sleep hygiene tips and relaxation exercises and are still have trouble sleeping, SleepHub® could be the answer you’ve been searching for.
A sleep training aid for adults only
Babies, children and teenagers have very different sleep patterns to an adult. Adult sleeping patterns generally settle in our very late teens to early twenties. Therefore, we recommend that SleepHub® is only used for adults over the age of 21.
SleepHub® has been developed to support adults in restoring their natural sleep cycles that may have been disrupted and forgotten over time.
