Babies spend much of their time sleeping. Newborns should spend around 17 hours sleeping a day and some even sleep as much as 19 hours, only waking up when their tummies need feeding. As they grow older, they will need less sleep – but a good sleeping schedule and environment continues to be massively important throughout the early years. As well as allowing little ones’ brains time to develop, sleep time is an important time for physical growth. Growth hormones work their magic when baby is in a deep sleep. Enough sleep can also boost their immune systems and ensure that they have fewer health problems later in life. Good sleep is also essential for parents, reducing the risk of stress and depression and generally increasing good mood.
Leading nursery brand, Tommee Tippee, has some incredible products to make sleeping a comfortable and cosy experience for little one, as well as a breeze for parents.
It is recommended that baby sleeps in the same room as mum and dad during their first few months, in order to help reduce the risk of cot-related deaths. The stylish Tommee Tippee Sleepee Basket allows parents to enjoy the reassurance of a safe and comfortable sleeping environment for their little one. It provides the perfect sleeping space for baby, with a compact design that makes it unobtrusive and easy to fit in even small rooms. The breathable airholes help to keep air circulating and help prevent overheating, while materials are soft, easy to clean and gentle on baby’s sensitive skin. The sturdy stand features a curved base, so it can be rocked if needed, in order to soothe baby back to sleep.
Tommee Tippee Breathable Toys are the perfect bedtime crib companions for babies. Made from breathable, hypoallergenic materials, there’s no need to worry as little hands squish and cuddle and little mouths explore their soft textures. As the toys are made from highly permeable soft knitted mesh, parents don’t have to worry about baby getting too hot as they hug their little friend. These soft toys are available in elephant, giraffe and rabbit varieties.
As nights get darker and longer, kids will appreciate having a night light. Tommee Tippee have a wide selection of night lights available – including the GroEgg – a colour changing light that also doubles up as a thermometer, so parents know that their baby’s room as at the right temperature. This product also features an adjustable light, so parents can ensure it’s at the right level of brightness for baby’s room. Also available are the Tommee Tippee Light & Sound soothers, which provide soft lights, soothing sounds and gentle lullabies to help baby settle to sleep. It features CrySensor technology, which listens out through the night and plays soothing sounds or lullabies to help comfort and settle baby if they wake – saving parents from having to get up. These are available in three different character designs – owl, panda and bear.
The Tommee Tippee range of Grobags give parents an easy way to keep baby snug and cosy all night long. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) acknowledges the Tommee Tippee Grobag as a ‘hip-healthy’ product when used as directed. The design helps to ensure that baby’s legs are in a natural froggy-legged position when sleeping and this is important for correct hip development. There is a variety of different styles and designs to suit all tastes. The range includes swaddles, sleepbags and the Steppee, supporting sleeping babies through their early months. They are available in a range of different tog counts – meaning there is Grobag for all seasons and all babies.
