Baby Sleep Gift Guide
Newborn Parent Gift Guide
Newborns need a lot of milk, burp clothes, diapers, love, snuggles and sleep! Aside from that, they don’t need much else. Parents of newborns have a few gifts that can make sleep much easier…
Until babies begins rolling, they should sleep snuggly in a swaddle. If not, baby’s startle (Moro) reflex, can cause them to wake themselves up if their arms are completely free during sleep periods. Swaddles also keep newborns cozy, warm and feeling safe, like they felt in the womb.

**If you are considering a weighted blanket for your child, check with your pediatrician and closely look at the weight ranges for safety. NOTHING weighted should ever be used with babies under 12 months of age as it can increase the likelihood of SIDS.**

Blue Light Blockers
Have a night owl worker or a phone junky in your life? They may not know that blue light emitted from our devices can make it difficult to fall asleep and decrease the restorative value of sleep. Ideally, devices are turned off 60 minutes before bed, but if you have to work late or can’t peel yourself away from the TV or your phone blue light blockers are a necessity:
Blue Light Blocking Light Bulbs
The right lightbulb in your bedside lamp supports your body’s natural production of melatonin, our sleepy hormone. Combined with a bedtime routine, the Asencia Sleep Enhancing Blue Light Blocking lightbulbs can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. We use these in my twins’ rooms and my bedroom.
Meditation Sleep Gifts
Trouble shutting your brain down at bed? Or do you wake in the night and your busy brain makes it difficult to return to sleep? Using a sleep meditation can help you get out of your head and calm your body, making it easier to fall asleep and return to sleep if you wake in the night.
