Psychologists give some useful recommendations on mechanics of awakening. First, it should be done softly and gently. You should not barge into the nursery like a tornado, carrying a natural disaster. Enter cautiously into the room, walk around on it — let your child feel in a dream that he was in the room alone.

Secondly, in no event it is impossible to pull off with a baby blanket or pull up a pillow, shake hands or legs, splashing water in his face. Sit on the edge of the bed and gently stroke the arms and legs of the baby. The mom or dad’s voice should not be loud and rude. Gently tell him that the window faced the sun, the rays of which aim to sneak into the nursery, Recalling that time to get up.

It is believed that between the beginning of awakening and, in fact, the rise must be at least 5-10 minutes.
If the child’s sleep is restless, fragmented, look for the cause. To leave this fact without “investigation” is impossible. Check out the quality of bed linen. It should be made of natural fabrics. From starched should be abandoned, because it can cause an allergic reaction on delicate skin of the child. It is very important to choose the right sleepwear that will not hamper the movement of the child. It must be seasonal: for summer perfect cotton or cotton pajamas for the winter — flannelette or fleece. For healthy sleep, it is recommended to control the temperature in the room where the baby sleeps. The best is +18°C.
