night awaking babies

Hillary G Mullet, Elizabeth J Marsh
Memory can be unreliable. For example, after reading The new baby stayed awake all night, people often misremember that the new baby cried all night (Brewer, 1977); similarly, after hearing bed, rest, and tired, people often falsely remember that sleep was on the list (Roediger & McDermott, 1995). In general, such false memories are difficult to correct, persisting despite warnings and additional study opportunities. We argue that errors must first be detected to be corrected; consistent with this argument, two experiments showed that false memories were nearly eliminated when conditions facilitated comparisons between participants' errors and corrective feedback (e...

Low-income African American mothers are at particular risk for poor postpartum sleep. This study sought to understand facilitators and barriers that exist to getting a good night's sleep among these high-risk mothers. Semistructured interviews with 18 low-income African Americans (3-6 months postpartum) were conducted. Most mothers described their own sleep quality to be poor, despite the fact that their babies' sleep improved substantially from the newborn period. Mothers kept themselves awake due to their own internal worry and anxiety, along with external factors that were largely independent of babies' sleep, including work and school commitments and the home environment...

During the transition from hospital to home and up to the first four months from due date, premature infants spend less time awake, and when they are awake, they are less alert and may be more fussy. When they sleep, they sleep for shorter periods of time (shorter sleep-wake cycles) and awaken to fuss before they go back to sleep at night.

Using modified Barnard and Eyres (1979) Sleep/Activity Records, 44 mothers recorded diurnal sleep and awake times for themselves and their infants during the 4th week postpartum. Independent two-way analyses of variance, using a two-factor design (3a x 2b), compared data from each mother and each infant. Independent variables were (a) parity groups (mothers feeding their first, second, or third infant) and (b) feeding method (breast vs. bottle). A statistically significant difference (alpha = .05) was apparent between breast-fed and bottle-fed babies regarding the number of awakenings and the hours of night sleep, with breast-fed babies awakening more and sleeping less at night...

Mothers in postpartum periods are forced to be awake at night in order to take care of their babies. It is important to investigate relationships between the sleep patterns of postpartum mothers and their babies' activities under conditions in daily life to determine effects on their health. In this study, changes in sleep parameters of young women from late pregnancy to the 6th postpartum week were studied using the ambulatory EEG monitoring system. Subjects were 10 primiparae, aged 23-31 yrs (mean age of 26...

Torrens House provides a short residential programme for families with a baby (8-12 months of age) identified by parents as having a sleep problem such as waking frequently at night and being difficult to settle. The programme involves the promotion of infant self-settling by the use of a controlled crying technique, together with wrapping, cessation of night feeds and establishment of a day-time routine. Twenty families (with 23 babies) were followed through the programme and for 3 months afterwards. There were significant decreases in the number of times the babies woke, the number of night-feeds and the length of time awake at night at 1 month follow-up, with a reduction in depressive symptomatology of the parents and a perceived improvement in their infants' behaviour...

The pediatrician can prevent or improve most sleep problems. Colicky babies need holding and cuddling. All babies should be placed in their cribs when sleepy but awake. Trained night feeding can be prevented by stretching out the daytime feeding intervals and making middle-of-the-night feedings "brief and boring." Trained night crying can be prevented by not providing any entertainment or lifting the infant out of the crib during the night. Fearful night crying can be prevented by eliminating the source of fears when possible and providing extra holding and reassurance during the day for fears...

This experimental study was designed to investigate the effects of constant and intermittent light on newborn infants. Changes in levels of salivary cortisol were utilized as indications of increased pituitary-adrenal activity. The sample consisted of 99 babies who were classified as state predominance sleep (Group A) babies or state predominance awake (Group B) babies following a 3-hour observation period for each infant. The experimental group was subjected to intermittent light and the control group to constant overhead lighting on two consecutive nights...
