AND HAPPY EASTER
This month P2 is has been finding out about how babies sleep and how important sleep is for the baby and parents. We have had a another visit from Arthur and his mum Miss Younger and the children were excited to see Arthur and see how much he is grown since we last weighed and measured him in November last year. Miss Younger shared with the children Arthur’s sleep pattern and what how she knows when he is feeling sleepy and needs a nap. Also that as he is so young and doing a lot of growing, he needs more sleep than the P2s need and we all require different circumstances to help us have a good sleep.
P2 really enjoyed learning about the different sleep cycles of REM and non-REM sleep and the different transitional objects that soothe babies and help them sleep. The children have enjoyed sharing their experiences and how they sleep and their favourite toy or blanket that helps them to fall sleep. In addition the children discovered how parents safely put their babies down to sleep on their backs, how temperament and routine is different for every baby.
