Hi!  I’m Mica Deshaw, a certified Pediatric Sleep Coach and Co-Founder of Rested Mama, Happy Baby, teaching responsive and holistic sleep training to over thousands of families!

I remember very vividly picturing this beautiful life of snuggles and calm, but once I had my first child, it felt more like chaos and exhaustion. From late-night feedings to soothing cries in the wee hours of the morning, sleep deprivation can quickly become the norm for new parents. With the gadgets that claim you’ll sleep better, there’s one thing I wish I would have spent more money on.  It wasn't a fancy swing or toy, it was having more comfortable sleepwear for my daughter and myself for the day.  And, guess what? The evidence is in, and fun and comfortable clothing play a crucial role in promoting restful nights and peaceful mornings for both mom and baby.  Here are my favorite stats:

The Cozy Quotient

Did you know that the average baby spends around 50-60% of their day asleep? That's right – newborns can snooze anywhere from 14 to 17 hours a day, while older babies typically get around 12-15 hours of shut-eye. With so much time spent in dreamland, it's essential to ensure that your little one is dressed for comfort and coziness to maximize the quality of their sleep.

The Pajama Preference

When it comes to baby sleepwear, there's no shortage of adorable options to choose from. But did you know that research has shown that babies sleep best in pajamas made from breathable fabrics like bamboo viscose? Not only are these fabrics gentle on baby's delicate skin, but they also help regulate body temperature and prevent overheating during the night – ensuring a more restful sleep for your little one.

The Robe Revelation

As for moms, the statistics on sleepwear preferences might surprise you. According to a recent survey, over 60% of moms prefer to sleep in a cozy robe rather than traditional pajamas or nightgowns. And who can blame them? With their soft, luxurious feel and effortless style, robes provide the perfect blend of comfort and convenience for those late-night feedings and early-morning cuddles.

The Sleep Style Spectrum

When it comes to bedtime attire, moms and babies alike have their own unique sleep style preferences. While some moms swear by silk pajamas for a touch of luxury, others opt for oversized t-shirts and leggings for maximum comfort. And when it comes to babies, the options are just as varied – from snug-fitting sleep sacks to adorable onesies adorned with playful patterns and prints.

The Sleep Impact

Perhaps the most surprising statistic of all is the profound impact that sleepwear can have on both mom and baby's sleep quality. Studies have shown that dressing babies in comfortable, breathable fabrics can help improve sleep duration and reduce nighttime awakenings – leading to more restful nights for the whole family. And for moms, investing in cozy sleepwear can help promote relaxation and enhance sleep quality – ensuring that they wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated each morning.

Brands like Coco Moon understand this the most, which include focusing on breathable and soft fabric. Their bamboo viscose pajamas are not only incredibly soft and comfortable – they're also designed with baby's safety and security in mind. With their gentle stretch and cozy fit, Coco Moon pajamas provide the perfect balance of comfort and support for your little one as they settle down for the night.

But the benefits of fun and comfortable clothing extend beyond just baby sleep – they're equally important for mama's rest and relaxation. Research has shown that maternal sleep is closely linked to maternal well-being, with poor sleep quality often leading to increased stress, anxiety, and fatigue.

That's why it's essential for mamas to prioritize their own comfort and relaxation at bedtime. And what better way to do that than with Coco Moon's luxurious bamboo viscose robes? Not only are they incredibly soft and lightweight, but they also provide the perfect blend of style and comfort for those late-night feedings and early-morning cuddles.

So go ahead, mama – indulge in a little self-care with Coco Moon. Wrap yourself in a luxurious robe, snuggle up with your little one in a cozy blanket, and let the soothing comfort of bamboo fabric envelop you both in a cocoon of serenity. Because when it comes to better sleep for mom and baby, every little detail counts.
