Dormir

Algo tan deseado por todos los padres y madres, como necesario.

Todos necesitamos tener tiempo para nosotros, para nuestras parejas. Necesitamos descansar. Y aunque queremos muchísimo a nuestros hijos, también necesitamos hacer otras cosas que no sea cuidar de ellos. Si no es así, llegará un momento en el que apenas podrás recordar quien eras antes de ser madre, que te gustaba, a qué dedicabas tu tiempo libre…bendito tiempo libre.

Probablemente lo que os voy a contar va en contra de la alimentación a demanda… pero funciona.

En nuestro caso llevamos haciendo esto desde que el niño tenía un mes y medio, y os puedo asegurar que mi hijo no ha pasado hambre en ningún momento.

Se trata de marcar unos horarios.

Evidentemente, si a un bebé le das de comer cada hora, él come, así como si le das cada 3. Comerá menos cantidad cada menos tiempo. Pero es justo eso lo que queremos evitar.

Pero la cuestión es: ¿Realmente lo necesita? Sinceramente, yo creo que no.

Hasta que Raúl cumplió mes y medio, estuvimos en casa de mis padres de vacaciones de verano. Una vez que volvimos a nuestra casa y a nuestras rutinas, nos tocó enfrentarnos, ahora solos, a nuestro cambio de vida.

En ese momento yo comprendí que no podía estar 24 horas al día viviendo por y para él. Necesitaba tiempo y sobre todo necesitaba dormir y descansar más de 2 horas seguidas.

Así que me puse manos a la obra.

Empecé distanciándole las tomas durante el día. ¿Cómo lo hice? Muy sencillo. Hasta ese momento Raúl comía cada tres horas, así que empecé a dormirle cuando iba a cumplir las dos horas y tres cuartos. De ese modo el niño se quedaba dormido y no se despertaba hasta al menos tres cuartos de hora más tarde, lo que hacía que la siguiente toma fuera cada tres horas y media. Esto sólo tuve que hacerlo un par de días y él solo empezó a pedir cada más tiempo.

Cuando lo de dormirle me fallaba, le engañaba con unos sorbitos de infusión, le ponía el chupete y volvía a intentar dormirle.

Y así conseguí que pidiera cada 4 horas con sólo mes y medio.

Con esto, como comprenderéis, conseguí que por las noches las tomas también fueran cada 4 horas. Así nuestros horarios comenzaron a ser los siguientes, el niño tomaba a las 8, 12, 4, 8, 12 y 4 de la mañana. Muy importante, tanto a las 12 como a las 4 de la mañana, si el bebé no se despierta, hay que darle el biberón igual. Comprobareis que aún dormido es capaz de abrir la boca y bebérselo sin problemas. Nos interesa que así sea, ya que será una toma que iremos eliminando con el tiempo y no tardando demasiado. A no ser que sea necesario, no le cambiéis el pañal en esta toma, ya que le despertareis demasiado.

En nuestro caso una vez que conseguimos establecer estos horarios, que como os digo nos costó apenas dos días, lo siguiente que decidimos hacer fue establecer una hora de acostarse.

Decidimos que el momento para acostar al niño era después de la toma de las 8 de la tarde. Y para que él lo entendiera comenzamos nuestra rutina. Todos los días sobre las 6 que se solía despertar de su última siesta antes de la toma, nos íbamos de paseo a la calle con él, para las 7 volvíamos a casa, jugábamos un poco con él y a las siete y media preparábamos el baño, le bañábamos, le dábamos sus cremitas y le poníamos un pijama limpio, el pañal limpito y a las 8 le dábamos la toma. Después de la toma, una nana mientras le acunábamos, justo hasta que se estuviera quedando dormido y a la cuna.

Es muy importante este dato, JUSTO HASTA QUE SE ESTÉ QUEDANDO DORMIDO. No queremos que se duerma en nuestros brazos. Queremos que el niño entienda el orden de las cosas y que aprenda a dormirse solito.

Puede pasarnos que el pequeño se espabile cuando le posemos en la cuna, en ese caso, le volvemos a coger y le cantamos otra nana hasta volver a ese estado de relajación con el queremos que asocie la cuna.

Es importante que en la cuna haya cosas que no vayan a desaparecer. Es decir, hay que contar con que el chupete se le va a caer, y con lo pequeño que es no lo va a encontrar cuando se despierte a media noche. Con lo cual es bueno que en la cuna, y cerquita suya haya algo más, algo que él pueda encontrar con sólo mover un brazo.

Además es importante que el bebé no pueda quedarse frio por las noches. Los bebés en su fase REM del sueño se mueven mucho, mueven brazos y piernas bruscamente y eso hace que se destapen. Y si el niño tiene frio se despertará llorando.

En nuestro caso decidimos comprarle un saquito de dormir. Aquí os dejo una foto de la cuna de Raúl para que lo veáis.

IMG_2504

De esta manera, tenemos desde las 8:30 que hemos conseguido que el bebé se quede tranquilito en la cuna hasta las 12 para descansar, ver la tele, dedicarnos tiempo, estar con nuestra pareja… o lo que nos apetezca!

Cómo eliminar tomas nocturnas, para mi próxima entrada. De momento id poniendo en práctica esto, que es primordial para que lo siguiente funcione.

Y ya sabéis, si os surge alguna duda escribidme y la solucionamos.

  1. Hola Cristina, mire tu enlace en enfemenino y decidí visitar tu pagina, me pareció interesante los temas que has tratado, tengo 24 año, soy madre primeriza y tengo una bebe de 6 meses y medio, es preciosa. Mi bebe dejo el pecho a los 4 meses debido a que no producida suficiente leche, y desde entonces toma su leche con bibe. A partir de los 6 meses estoy introduciendo a su alimentación las frutas en el desayuno, y las papillas en el almuerzo y reacciona estupendamente, cuando tenia 3-4 meses dormía de tirón 6.5 horas (1 toma por la noche), hoy en día duerme 4 horas por la cual me pide una toma mas, y yo siento q no estoy descansando lo suficiente… a veces siento que la ultima toma de la noche no la sustenta porque cuando despierta se desespera por comer… que me aconsejas?

  2. Hola tengo un Bebito de 3 meses y normalmente en el día no duerme las 3 horas siempre se despierta a la hora para tomar mas pecho aunque siempre toma antes de dormirse.. En las noches despues de las 12 si duerme mejor …pero se duerme en mis brazos.. Quisiera consejos para implementar una mejor rutina de comidas y siestas

  3. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

  4. Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  5. I’m not sure why but this blog is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  6.

  23. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  24. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  25. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  26. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  27. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  28. Someone essentially lend a hand to make critically articles I’d state. That is the very first time I frequented your web site page and so far? I amazed with the research you created to create this actual post extraordinary. Wonderful activity!

  29. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  33. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  34. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  35. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
