Many mothers will find that after their baby is born, they often wake up somehow for about 30-40 minutes during the day.

Now I feel that I don’t want to sleep, I can only hold it to sleep, I don’t sleep long, I don’t sleep well, and I wake up as soon as I get out of bed. What happened?
In fact, the sleeping pattern of newborns is different from that of adults. After falling asleep, newborns immediately enter an “active sleep” state. This active sleep lasts about 25 minutes and then enters a deeper sleep state, also known as “quiet sleep”. Quiet sleep is characterized by slow and rhythmic breathing, no movement, and no eyelid tremors. Babies in a quiet sleep state are less likely to wake up. After about 25 minutes, the sleep cycle ends and the newborn either wakes up or begins another active sleep phase that lasts 25 minutes.
