Pregnancy is a transformative experience and the first months after birth are the most difficult for new mums. You’re just starting to learn about parenting and no amount of preparation can prepare you for the real deal. While your body is still in recovery mode, you are trying to keep up with your newborn’s erratic sleeping patterns. They’ll wake up in the middle of the night and you need to wake up too, again and again, to fend for them.
Lack of sleep leaves you exhausted all the time and there’s little to no time left for self-care. You’re slower, tired, physically in pain and waiting to hit the sack at every possible moment. Even ordinary chores may feel like a tall task.
The least we can do then is try to make your life a little more organised. And that’s exactly what theAsianParent app’s new baby care sleep tracker aims to provide. The tools have been specifically designed, tested and verified by mums like you. They’ve been created for you. A product that we proudly call #ForMumsByMums.
What Is A Baby Sleep App Tracker?
The sleep tracker helps you keep track of your baby’s sleep cycle. How many hours of sleep does your little one get? When do they wake up? Are they getting the required amount of sleep? The sleep tracker will help answer these questions.
When you log their bedtime habits, you can see patterns and behaviours in a much simpler and more meaningful way.
At the same time, you get the opportunity to organise your sleep cycle, when to step out of the house, take a bath, make a meal or read a book.
Because Mums Deserve More
theAsianParent has extensively worked with local mums to create the sleep tracker. That’s because only mums can understand what they go through during these months after childbirth. That’s valuable insight that we’ve integrated into our tool for the benefit of new mums.
There is no punch out time to being a mum and that’s why mums deserve more. You deserve more time for yourself. You deserve to spend more time relaxing after fulfilling all your responsibilities. And every pillar of support that you can get will be helpful in this challenging journey of parenting.
The app aims to streamline your life despite the challenges. All you need to do is download the app for free from either the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store and check out our sleep tracker.
It’s important to focus on your baby’s overall well being, but it’s also necessary for mums to have a good night’s sleep. But when it comes to tracking your child’s sleeping pattern, the sleep tracker will come in handy. As you’re still exploring how everything works about being a mum, the tool aims to share at least one burden with you.
Be In Sync With Your Baby’s Sleep
Using the sleep tracker is a fairly simple process and all it requires is for you to feed data into the app. Here’s all the data that the app will ask you for:
- The sleep start time
- The end time
It’s as simple as that. It takes barely a minute to feed the data but what you get in return is far more valuable. It will help organise your life in so many ways.
Why Do Mums Need A Sleep Tracker App For Their Baby?
The sleep tracker will help ease your concerns and act as a bridge between your own conclusions and what the doctor needs to know.
As a new mum, it is okay to be paranoid about these things, and the sleep tracker aims to give you the right insights to help you understand how your baby is doing.
Here are a few reasons why should use our sleep tracker:
- Easy tracking of your baby’s sleep patterns
- Analyse patterns with weekly and monthly pattern charts
- Get expert analysis and a personalised sleep plan
- Have a place to jot down any notes you want to remember
- It gives mums more quality sleep
How Much Sleep Do Babies Need?
As your little one starts growing up, their sleeping pattern keeps changing and so do their sleeping hours.
Newborn babies need about 14-17 hours of sleep every day for the first three months. Some babies even sleep up to 18-19 hours a day. with breaks only for breastfeeding every two to three hours.
From 4-11 months, an infant requires about 12-15 hours of sleep, which goes down to 11-14 hours for toddlers between the ages of 1 and 2 years. As kids enter the preschool years, they need at least 9-11 hours of sleep every day.
With sleeping patterns changing so rapidly, it gets easier to keep track of the changes by using our sleep tracker.
Do Remember: Every baby is different and will have a different waking window. Keep a tab on when your baby shows signs of tiredness, rubbing eyes, crying and more. Use the app sleep tracker tool to create a customised sleep schedule for your baby, which will help you anticipate your routine in a better way.
