Sleep as a new mum

Being a new mum is a tough challenge: everything is new and sometimes feelings and tiredness can be overwhelming. Sleep often takes a second place on the priorities list, especially once babies are born. Discover what are the most common sleep challanges as a new mum and how you can make the most out of the time you have.

1. Postpartum Nightsweats

Before and after giving birth women experience hormonal changes that can often cause postpartum chills and nightsweats as well as insomnia during pregnancy. These episodes can affect sleep, waking us, preventing from falling back asleep and therefore depriving us from a well-deserved rest. 

Even though hormonal imbalances and nightsweats cannot always be avoided, what you can do is to wear breathable maternity nightwear that does not get damp when if you sweat, keeps you dry and fresh and helps you maintain the ideal sleep temperature all night.  

2. Nursing

Once a baby is born, new mums soon realize that nursing pyjamas aren't all the same. In fact, some of them are not only not designed specifically for nursing, but also make the job even more complicated than it should be. 

Dagsmejan's pregnancy pyjamas are developed, tested and approved by real mums. With a bump-friendly design and an easy-nursing access, Dagsmejan's nursing pyjamas will let you sleep comfortably and breastfeed trouble-free. Read here what too look for in maternity and nursing pyjamas.

3. Restless baby

Babies and newborns often have a hard time sleeping. There are multiple roots to this problem, but the most commons are pyhsical discomfort, hunger and temperature fluctuations. This last point is due to the fact that a baby's body surface is about three times bigger than an adult's, compared to the weight. In addition to that, babies can also lose body heat 4x quicker than grown-ups. For that reason, babies can get cold and shiver but also also easily overheat during the night, especially when wearing heavy and not breathable sleepwear.

Higher the chances of your baby enjoying a good night's sleep by dressing him with breathable, lightweight but warm baby pjs. Look for newborn sleepsuits that don't make them feel neither hot nor cold but at the same time don't make them overheat.
