Maternal and child health: Lack of sleep in newborns, can home remedies be effective in such cases?
I was breastfeeding my baby when someone said that if you grind it and drink it with warm water, the baby will start sleeping, but by doing so, I will start falling asleep.
According to medical experts, newborns usually sleep for about 18 hours a day, but if the baby’s sleep is disturbed or reduced, it not only affects his health, but also worries the parents and especially the mother. Can cause fatigue and anxiety.
Something similar happened to Karachi couple Zohaib Siddiqui and his wife Nimrah when they became parents for the first time.
Nimrah says, “My mother’s friend told me to massage her and try to wrap her in a muslin cloth.” Someone else said that if you take mustard oil and massage the baby with it, it will sleep, but he did not sleep with it either.
