When we Adults are busy and need time; then suddenly we remember those wonderful inventions: the iPad, the tablet, the phone, the television, the video games, and we believe that we could not survive these days without them. But I invite you think about our parents a generation that grew up very well without these electronic devices. The human being is adaptable, and it is extremely easy to adapt to comfort, but we are also tricky, and we get used to the comfort and ease that we have at our fingertips.
Nowadays due to this “pandemic” children are spending more time in front of this technology since we find that they can learn from dance classes to academic classes even being isolated we can also feel accompanied and perhaps not lose that study so valuable but in addition to studying we are also taking the “breaks” in front of an electronic device , apparently we believe that nothing will happen because it is like “if they are going to school” or to their “dance class” but unfortunately it is not so, all electronic devices emit blue light that increases macular degeneration related to vision, this light penetrates the retina, which also has connection with the brain and prevents the production of the sleep hormone from starting.
It is usually recommended that any technology be used limited by children under the age of 5, preferably not to use it. But children are not the problem is the adults who are already enslaved to use them as a tool of our daily lives.
Zzleep My Baby recommends to any family that wants to start sleeping better and with an ideal routine eliminate the use of electronic devices during the afternoons if it is not possible at least one hour before going to sleep. We know that many families put movies before bed even Liliana Amaro remembers that her best friend had to sleep with the television on because the screen end of programming, if that of colored stripes and gray sound was what made her friend sleep better (this noise is similar to the one that the white noise machines make). It sounds unbelievable but these habits exist in many families and of course create bad habits. That friend was always late to school because she always woke up too late, also she never concludes her studies and even now she sleeps late at night and her day begins around 11-12pm.
Health is in these times is particularly important and good habits at bedtime influence a lot in behavior and physical regeneration as adults we should try to spend more time with our children than make them to look at screens.
When a child has trouble going to bed, wakes up at night, has nightmares and spends a lot of time in front of an electronic device it is easy to diagnose.
