You Will Learn “I Sleep Like A Baby” Is Not A Peaceful Sleep
Babies move a lot when they sleep for several reasons. One reason is that babies are still developing their nervous system and motor skills, and movement helps them to practice and improve these abilities. Additionally, babies are not yet able to control their movements as well as adults, so they may move around in their sleep without being aware of it. Another reason is that during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage of sleep, where most of the dreaming occurs, muscle tone is temporarily suppressed. This allows the body to move and act out the dream, but since babies haven’t fully developed that ability yet, they may move excessively. Lastly, babies have a more active sleep cycle than adults. They spend more time in REM sleep, which is when the body is more active, and less time in deep sleep, which is when the body is more still. It is also possible that they are trying to find a comfortable position or are reacting to something in the environment such as noise or a change in temperature.
