Sleep (Melatonin Blue) 2019 is the first in a new series of head works made whilst sleeping. The carbon paper collects the layers rips and traces of my nocturnal movement. I like the paper not just for its texture and tracing but as a material with a history of invoicing and office copying. In a way I see these works as a receipt of my sleep. This one was made last autumn during my residency with LaunchPad after trying to settle back from a project at ArtBo Bogota, effected by a lack of sleep, melatonin and visions of sunflowers. Now the work has travelled to ARCO Madrid with the RYDER Booth 9E15 until Sunday @feriaarco @the_ryder_projects @launchpadart #sleep #movement #circulation #melatonin #blue #travel #disturbance #rest #exhaust #subjectivity #currency #sleepwork #sleepers #connectivity Installation photo: @agnesesanvito

1st baby, I remember looking at my L&D nurse after I got my IV placed and I started crying. ⁣
⁣
➕“HOW AM I GOING TO DO THIS?”⁣
➕“WHAT WAS I THINKING?”⁣
➕“DO YOU SERIOUSLY TRUST ME TO TAKE HOME A HUMAN BEING?” ⁣
⁣
I wanted to tell her that just 9 months ago staying out till 2AM was normal for me, that I didn’t like to do laundry, and sometimes forgot to brush my teeth at night! 😩⁣
⁣
She gave me a big hug, told me all 1st time moms have a moment like this, and what I really needed to worry about was ME! ⁣
⁣
ME? Ok….but what did she mean?⁣
⁣
I now get it. Babies are along for the ride. Yes, they need basic things like diapers, a safe sleep space, bottles, swaddles, etc., but as long as they are loved and basic needs are met, we need to turn the focus around to the moms!!!⁣
⁣
Are moms eating enough? Are moms recovering ok? Are moms showering? Are moms getting adult stimulation? Are moms happy? Are moms sleeping enough? ⁣
⁣
Because let me tell you now, if Mama isn’t happy, NO ONE IS HAPPY! 😂⁣
⁣
My biggest issue was I felt out of control. I had all the “right things” for baby, but in the progress I forgot to prep how to survive the day to day more than finding the best diaper pail in the all the land! ⁣
⁣
This list is different for everyone, but there are a few common themes that would have prepped me better:⁣
⁣
1. What I should expect after birth. (Seriously why didn’t anyone tell me about mesh underwear or squirt bottles?)⁣
⁣
2. BREASTFEEDING IS HARD, a mind trip, and oddly beautiful, all wrapped in a big bow of mom guilt.⁣
⁣
3. I knew I would sleep less, but how to cope with less and how to help guide babies to better sleep was NO WHERE in my pregnancy book! ⁣
⁣
Hey maybe that’s why I’m doing what I’m doing today... my lack of knowledge inspired me to help others have more control! 🤷🏼‍♀️⁣
⁣
Take care of yourselves people. Your a better parent because if it! ⁣
⁣
What was something you wish you knew before becoming a parent??? Comment ⬇️⁣

⛰What does climbing a mountain and sleep work have in common? ⁣⛰
⁣
➕ It’s ok to ask an expert climber for some advice and help before or during the climb.⁣
⁣
➕ Time differs depending on the climber. ⁣
⁣
➕ If you want to climb well you need to prepare and create a plan. ⁣
⁣
➕ You need to have the right tools for certain scenarios and know what to do if something goes wrong. ⁣
⁣
➕ If you fall you need to brush it off and get back up. ⁣
⁣
➕ Sometimes you have to take a break to be stronger the next day.⁣
⁣
➕ The feeling at the top is pretty awesome!!!⁣😴
⁣
✖️ And even more importantly, even though you know how to climb the mountain, each climb (regressions, travel, sickness) might be a little different. But you know that with consistency you can get back up to the top since you know the way!✖️ ⁣
⁣
Wow that was A LOT of metaphors—ha, I’ll just be over here all day thinking of more. 😂⁣
⁣
Our work together is way more than the immediate... you are learning skills to handle all terrain!! (guys...I can’t stop.) 🤣🤣⁣

What is the Circadian Rhythm?

The circadian rhythm (CR) is an incredibly complex biological “clock” that controls the timing of many happenings in the body. Some examples would be meal timing, bathroom needs, hormone production and, you guessed it, sleep!

CR is governed by light/dark exposure and works best with sleep regularity. Have you ever noticed your child seems to be super awake and playful leading up to bedtime? Yeah well that is also the CR at work. It generally drives a period of wakefulness right before a period of sleep (we often call this the second wind). With that in mind it helps shed some light (pun intended) on why sleep regularity is so important. You want to make sure you are putting your child to bed during the sleepy time and not the wakeful time. Doing this consistently helps to reinforce the correct rhythm and keep them from becoming desynchronized. 
In short, desynchronized rhythms suck! They cause the the body to feel one way while the brain feels another (jet lag is another example). When this happens it often means increased tears and bedtime battles! 👎🏻 📸 @she_plusfive .

Gute Nacht Leute! 
Wer viel arbeitet muss auch definitiv genug schlafen. Ich empfehle 7-9 Stunden. Dazu noch Sport und gesunde Ernährung und nach Feierabend Freizeit und Erholung. Perfekt 💪 Außerdem freut man sich sowieso am nächsten Tag auf die Arbeit, wenn man in seinem Beruf die Berufung findet. Ich freue mich auf jeden Fall auf morgen!
Erfüllt dich deine Arbeit auch?

1️⃣2️⃣ Sleep Regularity!
Babies and children thrive on predictability and routine and sleep is no exception. Circadian rhythms also require consistency in order to create the best quality sleep. 
So how do we create and then preserve sleep regularity for our little ones?
The first thing we do is let go of the old “never wake a sleeping baby” adage. This may apply to newborns but once you are trying to create a consistent schedule letting them sleep for random amounts of time will only work against your goal and also wreak havoc on their circadian rhythms. 
Begin with morning wake, this should be a consistent and age appropriate time EVERY morning without exception (usually between 6-7am). It sets the tone (and timing) for the day and night to follow. 
Follow with a consistent bedtime. Aim for roughly 12-13 hours hours after morning wake and do your best to keep it within 30 minutes of the same time each night (hint: check out yesterday’s sleep tip if you’re struggling to get bedtime to a more age appropriate time). To protect sleep regularity it helps to know your child’s temperament. Some children thrive and do better with to the minute clock schedules while others require a little bit more flexibility. 
This information can help you understand how best to help coax your little ones sleep into a more consistent and predictable routine. Once you know what you’re dealing with you can aim to create a routine for the day. For the more predictable babies the clock can help for this and for the ones who are bit more inconsistent the order of activities and rituals can really help (still aiming for consistent timing but not as rigidly). What do you find is the most challenging about creating sleep regularity?

Children mirror our energy, especially when it comes to sleep. When we are upset, stressed, and frustrated, our sheepys can sense that, and it can feel alarming to them as they don't understand this negative energy. 
I know it is way easier said than done. I am no stranger to the frustration and despair of sleepless nights. It is always easier to see the cause and effect later during a more rested mindset. It's normal to be frustrated when your sleep-deprived and want to go back to sleep.
Trust me. Your not so sleepy sheepy wants to get sleep just as much as you do.
So maybe you're embarking on sleep work, perhaps you're up again in the middle of the night trying to resettle, maybe your praying for a longer nap. Whatever the source of frustration is, take a moment to check in with your energy. Take a deep breath; concentrate on the feeling of love you have for your little one,  believe it will get better. Your sleepy sheepy can and will get better sleep. Having confidence will go a long way to ensure your sheepy has a sense of safety and security. The feeling of safety and security = healthy sleep. .
What has helped you stay calm and sleep on? .

🔟 Temperature!
Temperature might not seem like a notable sleep tip but in fact it is very important in a few different ways. 
The first applies to creating a safe sleep environment for your baby. Often our instinct is to turn the heat up and bundle them up because we just can’t imagine how these little tiny beings can stay warm and we want to make them as cozy as possible.  However overheating increases the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), so if the room temperature feels comfortable to you then it is likely comfortable for baby. 
The second applies to improving the quality of sleep. Generally speaking all of us sleep better in a slightly cooler environment. Our body temperatures lower as we prepare to fall asleep and so having the room a little cooler helps to facilitate that process. Babies are no different. I always tell my clients i’d like to see children’s rooms between 19-22 degrees Celsius (66-71F). I find this to be a bit of a sweet spot between not too cold (which can cause premature waking) and not too hot (which can cause overheating and also premature waking). If you are like my family and live in a house that isn’t super easy to maintain consistent temperatures all the time, then you might need adjust baby’s sleep attire to suit. My standard recommendation is footed cotton pj’s and a sleep sack that has a 2.5tog rating, but if your house is out of my above temp range then you may need to modify this to suit. Moral of the story is i’d always prefer a cooler room and an extra layer but it really does depend on the baby. 
I’d also recommend putting a thermometer in the room to be able to get an accurate up to date reading of the temperature throughout the day/night. Often thermostats are nowhere near our bedrooms so it’s very difficult to trust that what the thermostat is telling you is what is actually the case in each room. What temperatures your kids room? What about yours? #sleeptemperature #sleeptight #sleepwork #dreamy #selflove #motherhood #baby #babysleep #positiveparenting #tiredmom #happychild #respectfulparenting #baby #children #sleepthroughthenight #healthysleep #parentinghacks

I’d also recommend putting a thermometer in the room to be able to get an accurate up to date reading of the temperature throughout the day/night. Often thermostats are nowhere near our bedrooms so it’s very difficult to trust that what the thermostat is telling you is what is actually the case in each room. What temperatures your kids room? What about yours? #sleeptemperature #sleeptight #sleepwork #dreamy #selflove #motherhood #baby #babysleep #positiveparenting #tiredmom #happychild #respectfulparenting #baby #children #sleepthroughthenight #healthysleep #parentinghacks - 3 months ago

6️⃣ Bedtime routine for the win!
A question I get asked often is “what can we do from day one to encourage healthy and independent sleep for my newborn”? My answer will always be CREATE A BEDTIME ROUTINE! Having a bedtime routine can create a habit that triggers a calming response in a child of any age. 
It doesn’t have to be complex, in fact it should be super simple. It should be calming and relaxing and also keep the momentum moving forward towards the ultimate goal, BED! It should also be something you can recreate in the exact same way every night (so think hard whether you want to include a bath in it because that really adds to your time commitment). So how do you implement this with a newborn who arguably never actually “goes to bed” or a child who isn’t yet on a consistent schedule? Well with a newborn I recommend picking a time in the evening after a period of wakefulness and doing the routine. At first it may feel like an arbitrary activity that just happens in the evening without any predictable sleep attached to it but the more you repeat it the more they will learn it is tied to night sleep. 
With an older baby who isn’t yet on a schedule i’d recommend starting 30 minutes before they typically fall asleep. Implement the bedtime routine at that time and spend a week or so letting the baby learn to connect falling asleep with the routine. Once you have it firmly in place you can always shift the timing backwards gradually to get to a more age appropriate bedtime. 
Moral of the story is that having this habit firmly in place will be a HUGE help to any future sleep work. Travelling and wondering how to protect sleep? Having a familiar bedtime routine helps. Trying to get on a new schedule? Having a consistent and predictable bedtime routine helps to change gears to sleep when needed. The list of benefits are endless!

Look familiar? Perhaps you were rushing to get a meal on the table thinking you could squeak it in before a nap and then BOOM your child is asleep in some random spot and that sense of dread spreads over you that you’ve now missed your window and any hopes of a “real” nap are dashed. 😭
I don’t know about you, but in our house naps are SACRED. They are important not only for the kids but for me. It’s my only time to have some “me” time in the day and as a result I am VERY protective of it. 
If you are having trouble figuring out how to get your child on a consistent schedule and taking more quality naps or perhaps you find your baby hard to read and you can’t quite figure out their unique tired cues, I recommend tracking all of their sleep. 
Not just when they slept, but also how long and what they were doing before they fell asleep. Were they wired? Exhausted and withdrawn?  Relaxed? Once you have a weeks worth of logs I guarantee you will start to see some patterns and from there you can begin to build out a schedule that works for everyone. Or of course you can ask me and I can help 😬☁️💤 #tracksleep #setupforsuccess #sleepconsultant #childsleep #sleepbetter #childsleep #familysleep #sleepscience #sleepwork #dreamy #followme #sleeptips #selflove #motherhood #baby #babysleep #positiveparenting #tiredmom #happychild #respectfulparenting #healthysleep #parentinghacks

Hands up if you love snuggles! 🙋🏼‍♀️ Hands up if one of the reasons you are cautious of sleep work is because you think it means no more snuggles at bedtime. 🙋🏽‍♀️
This is so often something I address with my clients. They are experiencing sleep issues but feel they have to choose between their beloved bedtime snuggles and a good night’s sleep. 
Well let me clear this up once and for all. Rarely, do I ever recommend letting those snuggles go in my sleep plans (unless this is the client’s goal). Those bedtime cuddles can become a very important part of your child’s whole day. It offers time to connect, to relax and decompress and also stimulates parts of the brain that reduces blood pressure and stress levels. In other words it’s a bit of a wonder drug!
My job is helping you figure out YOUR family’s perfect balance between a good night’s sleep and everyone’s love of bedtime snuggles. The two can exist harmoniously and in fact even complement each other.

Sleep is one of the greatest gifts you can give your body. We recommend 8 hours a night minimally. And studies suggest that when we don’t have this luxury - catching up on weekends is beneficial. So sleep and sleep in. Recharge and let your body work it’s restorative magic for you.
