Knowing the difference between quiet sleep and active sleep will save you some zzz’s during the newborn stage!
Every time my babies fussed during their sleep I would pick them up. Even though they weren’t crying, I assumed they were frustrated and wanted to be held. Little did I know they were in a state of active sleep and I was waking them up when I did that!
There is a power to the pause when it comes to newborn sleep. If your baby isn’t crying and doesn’t seem to be in distress, give it a minute before picking them up. They may be in an active sleep cycle!
I wish this was something I learned about sooner! My 4th baby sleeps so much better than my other three and I know a lot of that has to do with me not disturbing his sleep when he is in an active cycle!
