Newborn Baby’s Morning Stretches Melts Hearts

June 5th, 2020

Everyone knows that feeling. When you get that good sleep, you wake up refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed. You’re up on your own accord without an alarm blaring at you after a night of tossing and turning. Yes, that’s the sleep dreams are made of.

You know they don’t call it, “Sleep like a baby,” for nothing.

This little newborn demonstrates what it truly means to sleep like a baby. The baby girl rises and stretches and truly shines her way into the day. Mommy and daddy must be so proud, and watching this video will make your heart warm up tenfold.

She’s a beautiful, cuddly mass of wrinkly fresh baby love.

Her parents couldn’t be more pleased. It’s been six days since they were blessed with a new member of the family. These are the joys of parenthood and the reward for momma going through nine months of carrying her throughout the pregnancy.

The sage wisdom is to stay present, as these days will quickly disappear.

Blink and she’ll be graduating from college. Good thing dad has Youtube to keep the memories for years to come.

She’s got such amazing facial expressions.

It looks like she’s not only stretching her arms and legs but all of her facial muscles as well. She’s probably getting that jaw and tongue ready to spend her waking hours drinking momma’s milk.

If you watch closely you might see some of those newborn reflexes. According to What to Expect

“Perhaps the most noticeable of her newborn behaviors will be those built-in reflexes that come standard issue to all newborns, including the all-important rooting reflex (when her cheek is stroked she’ll turn in that direction), which helps baby locate the breast or bottle, and the sucking reflex (nature’s way of ensuring baby gets those feeds at the breast or bottle).”

In the article, “How to Sleep Like a Baby,” Good Housekeeping says to create a routine. This can involve winding down for at least thirty minutes before you plan to get into bed, which helps signal your brain it’s time for sleep.

Another tip for sleeping like a baby is to get sun rays on your skin. Sunlight sets our internal clocks so we know it’s time for bed when the sun is on the other side of the globe.

Good Housekeeping suggests working out early in the day and avoiding exercise an hour before bedtime. Raising your heart rate right before bed doesn’t help bring your body to rest when you need it. Morning exercise guides your body to better sleep at night.

Another tip from the article is to watch what time you eat …

“When you eat, gravity is your friend — it helps pull the food toward your stomach for digestion. However, if you chow down on a huge meal right before bed, and then lie down to sleep, the results may be painful (think acid reflux).”

“Such facial expressions at that age, especially the face of REALLY DAD can’t a girl get some beauty sleep around here?”
