Enter the baby whisperers
14th September,2014
The sleepless nights were beginning to drive young Bangalore mother Ritu Sharma to despair. Her six-month old daughter Sia was waking up four or five times in the night and would doze off only after she was nursed or rocked for what seemed like an eternity to her weary mother. This was when Sharma decided to seek professional help from a sleep coach. Within a week of enrolling for a unique baby sleep training programme, Sia started sleeping for long stretches. A sleep coach deals with multiple issues. It could be a child who wakes through the night and finds hisher way to the parents' room. It could be an older child with bedwetting issues or fears of recurring nightmares. At least six couples approach India's first child sleep consultant, Ajita Seethepalli, every month since she launched kidscener.in last September. "Grannies may say that sleepless nights are an inevitable part of parenting, but it does not have to be that way," says the Gurgaon resident who trained to be a sleep coach at the International Maternity Institute, US. For Rs 8,000, she designs a step-by-step 'Sleep Right' plan with 'gentle' methods to help parents coach babies - mostly aged six-months to two years - to sleep soundly. "Not just first-timers, many mothers-of-two approach me because their firstborns still walk into their room every night, waking them and their younger siblings," says Seethepalli, whose interest in sleep training stemmed from her own struggle - her son slept for no more than two hours at a stretch till he was nine months old. Older children have different sleep issues. "I see about a dozen kids every month suffering from sleep trouble," says neurologist Dr Manvir Bhatia, who runs a sleep clinic at Hauz Khas. He regularly conducts sleep study for kids who display abnormal behavior - terror of the night or sleep walking. "I recently treated a Class X student whose parents woke up to find him lying in the bathroom and another who went into the eighth floor balcony while sleep walking," she says. Unlike adults, babies need to be 'put to sleep' and 'put back to sleep' countless times each night. And in the West, like fad diets, new sleep coaching methods are surfacing. There is the self-explanatory 'Shush-Pat' system or Kim West's 'Sleepy Lady Shuffle' where the parent sits in a chair that moves farther and farther away from the crib. But the three most time-tested - and debated - approaches are the 'cry-it-out' (the baby is allowed to cry till he falls asleep), 'controlled crying' (the baby needs to be checked on at prescribed intervals) and the 'no-tears' (tend to the baby immediately). Seethepalli employs a combination of these ideas based on the child's personality and parents' preferences - how soon do they want the child to be sleep trained and how much crying they can handle. She charts out a 24hour schedule for every child with a set time for waking, napping, playing and feeding. A soothing bedtime ritual has to be followed and keeping babies awake to greet daddy is a strict no-no. Firmly repeating the phrase `It's bedtime' could also make sure the child knows it is time to wind down. A `sleep buddy', like a blanket or a toy , too is a good idea to eliminate the child's dependence on sleep crutches like the bottle or pacifier. Seethepalli also devises plans for parents who want their children to sleep in their own beds. Sima Gupta, 35, who was expecting her third child, used to feel drained all day because her eldest son (5) walked into her room at least twice every night breaking her sleep. "He was fussy when I first implemented the plan but soon learnt to sleep in his own room," says Gupta. Most children just need counselling. They are asked to follow good sleep hygiene -no TV before bedtime, a warm glass of milk, no gadgets and so on. They are also asked to maintain a `sleep diary' with details of their sleep time, duration and disruptions. In a few cases, the doctors may also recommend a `white noise' machine that blocks out distracting sounds in the house.

What's app at midnight? India's teens
There was a time when Gunjan Jain pored over her books and notes till late at night. Now, the only texts that keep her up past the witching hour are those sent by chatty friends. All I do is text till midnight and even later,” says the 17-year-old North Delhi resident, who’s taking a year off to prepare for the medical entrance exam next year. “During the day everyone is busy with studies, tuitions, sports and spending time with parents. Night is our ‘me’ time,” she claims. Nimisha Kumar, 18, also enjoys pinging past midnight. “I usually chat till 1 am with my college friends or cousins. We gossip, share photos on Instagram or Snapchat, watch trailers and songs on YouTube,” says the Indr aprastha University, Delhi student whose Facebook page reveals most images, status updates and comments are made between midnight and 2 am. Bitten by the late-night texting bug, Gunjan and Nimisha are part of a worldwide coven of ‘vamping’ teens — a cool Twilight-inspired term coined for a generation that prefers Snapchat over sleep. A quick search on #vamping throws up images of teenagers looking bored, lying on bed, looking at the moon and saying #iamsleepless, #whoallareup, #iusedtosleep...help! A 2012 survey by Assocham revealed that nearly 60% of Indian teenagers view 125 text messages a day. It will be fairly safe to assume that the number has gone up. Dr Manoj Kumar Sharma, who works at India’s first internet de-addiction clinic run by NIMHANS Bangalore, is studying the trend. “Based on my research and patients, teenagers attribute this habit to the need to discuss academics with friends. They are not forthcoming to discuss the exact content of texting either with their parents or the counselor,” says Dr Sharma, who is an assistant professor in clinical psychology. While both Jain and Kumar insist that they are better off than many of their friends who stay up till 4 am, Jain admits her academic performance nose-dived after her parents gifted her a phone in class 10 and that she didn’t get admission in Delhi University. Jain calls late-night texting “midnight madness”. “Everybody does it...even children in class 4 and 5,” she says, claiming it is the only way to keep in touch with friends. Parents, of course, are aware of their nocturnal going-ons, privy to the constant beeps, buzzes and dim light peeking out from under closed doors. “It’s not only at night; they are texting while eating, watching TV and even when we are on vacation,” says Priya Venkataraman, mother of two teenagers. Kavita Devgan has a midnight curfew for her 17-year-old son. “Or else, his sleep cycle goes out of whack and affects his mood as well,” says Devgan. While teenagers typically need 8-9 hours of sleep every night, the onset of puberty and ensuing hormonal changes — melatonin, the hormone controlling sleep cycle, is secreted later than usual — pushing their bedtime. As a result they want to stay up late and wake up late. “A habit of sleeping just for a couple of hours at night can lead to poor memory, weight gain and mood swings,” cautions Dr Manvir Bhatia, a sleep specialist. Teenagers admit they nap during the day. “It is common to see some our friends dozing off in class,” says Anirban, a class 12 student in Delhi who also stays up late, but only to study, he claims.
While I was sleeping
If asked “Are you sleeping every night?”, you’d most probably say “Yes”. But if asked, “Are you satisfied with your sleep?”, your likely answer is “No”. Unfortunately, that’s what the Philips Sleep Survey, conducted by the Nielsen Co. in December, found: 93% of Indians are sleep deprived, getting less than 8 hours of sleep per day; 87% think lack of sleep is affecting their health; 11% took leave from work because of it; 58% felt their job suffered, with 11% actually falling asleep at work. Philips Healthcare plans to establish 130 sleep labs across the country this year. Most larger urban hospitals have sleep labs which can identify what causes the lack of shut-eye but people shy away from these labs because “the sleep study test is a little expensive and people don’t know what to expect from it. In fact many people don’t consider snoring as a disorder and hence seek no treatment for it,” says Manvir Bhatia, chairperson, sleep medicine, and senior consultant, department of neurology, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi. According to her, 5-6% of Indian males above 40 suffer from sleep apnoea, and the numbers for those who snore are higher.
Can't sleep? Sound the alarm!
Six years ago, when 36-year-old software engineer Mehul Kohli scored a job with a US-based multinational, he was both ecstatic and relieved. He’d struggled to get this far and that dream job was finally his. Sure, the hours were erratic, but the pay made it all worthwhile. Or so it seemed at first. Then, things started to go wrong. “I’d come back from work at 3am, and it would be at least an hour before I’d get into bed,” Kohli recalls. “By the time I actually slept it was 4.30am. Though I had time till noon, the light and noise meant I didn’t get sound sleep.” He’d find himself waking up at 7.30am every day, unable to return to bed even though he’d only had three hours of actual shut-eye. It took its toll – poor concentration and sluggishness had no room in the corporate world – and Kohli ultimately had to seek professional help. Even two decades ago, someone like Kohli would have had no recourse but to see a psychiatrist. Regular doctors were unprepared to deal with sleep problems, and even those diagnosed with any of the 80-odd sleep disorders had no place for specialised testing or treatment. Today, however, almost every Indian hospital has a sleep centre equipped to diagnose and treat sleep-related problems. Some 300 sleep clinics have sprung up in our cities. Kohli went to one, and after a year of mediation and specially designed therapy, his sleep patterns returned to normal. THE LIE OF THE LAND It used to be that sleep was just something you did at the end of the day. Man rose with the sun, milked the cows, tilled the fields, napped during the hottest hours, worked some more and still had plenty to yawn about by twilight. Then, as most Western sleep researchers believe, the Industrial Revolution came along and ruined it all. A long, continuous workday cancelled out the siesta, turning the urban worker from a bi-phasic to a mono-phasic sleeper, forced to recharge in a single nocturnal stretch. Indian sleep experts believe that the recent rise in India’s sleep problems (or at least our recent willingness to seek help for them) stems from the same switch. Bedtime isn’t when the sun sets, it’s when we’re done with TV, laptop, overtime or 10pm dinner reservation. Bedroom lights stay on later in cities, alarm bells ring earlier – everything eats into sleep time. “This kind of lifestyle has wreaked havoc on our biological clock, which is controlled by sunlight,” says Dr JC Suri, professor and head of Safdarjung Hospital’s department of respiratory and sleep medicine. “Our body normally gets the signal to sleep when it’s dark, but that hardly happens these days, which leads to sleep disturbance.” Others agree. Dr Preeti Devnani of Jaslok Hospital’s Sleep Disorders Clinic, says that while the body’s daily rhythms do dip in the afternoon (making you crave a nap), urban life buzzes unceasingly until 1am. Neurologist and director of Delhi’s Neurology and Sleep Centre Dr Manvir Bhatia adds that most of us see sleep issues as non-issues. “While self-medication for sleep is rampant, people don’t discuss it,” she points out “Even physicians didn’t take sleep into consideration until recently.” To make matters worse, India equates rest with laziness, claims Prasad Karnik, technical director at Mumbai’s International Institute of Sleep Sciences (IISS). “We’re a nation in denial,” he says. “We think nothing’s really wrong if we can’t sleep.” For most of us, there really might not be anything wrong. A normal adult needs seven to eight hours of sleep daily and a child needs about nine. Dr Suri says it’s quite normal to have the occasional sleepless night, or a week or two of troubled bedtime. “However, think of consulting a doctor if the symptoms last for more than a month,” he advises. SNOOZE OPERATORS At a sleep centre, doctors typically start by ascertaining your sleep history – how you sleep, how often, how long, your snoring patterns - and looks for underlying causes like medication or existing conditions like diabetes or hyperthyroidism. You may also undergo a sleep study, in which tiny electrodes are strapped on to your head, face, chest, arms and legs while you are encouraged to sleep for eight hours. The electrodes record electrical impulses to the brain, eyeball movements, nasal flow and pressure, heart rhythm, stress or tension in the chest, snoring, oxygen saturation and limb movement, offering real-time data for an expert to analyse. It’s an essential tool to determine the problems you have, or confirm that there are problems in the first place. “If you think you’ve stayed up all night but were actually asleep, a sleep study will prove paradoxical insomnia,” says Dr Ashim Desai of the Nova Specialty Surgery chain, which has tied up with Norway’s Eurosleep to establish India-specific sleep data and raise awareness about sleep disorders. The most common of the 80-odd sleep disorders is insomnia – trouble falling asleep, sleeping through the night or waking up earlier than the intended hour. Other diagnoses include apnoeas or breathing problems during sleep, insufficient sleep syndrome (which creates a condition called absenteeism – you’re physically present, but not “quite there”), or delayed sleep phase syndrome, (in which the day-night sleep cycle has shifted, making it hard for the person to function). Many diagnoses also include bruxism (gnashing of teeth in sleep), restless leg syndrome, sleepwalking or chronobiological disorders like jet lag. “A lot of the cases are referred by endocrinologists, cardiologists and neurologists, as these diseases are directly linked with sleep deprivation,” says Dr MS Kanwar, senior consultant, chest diseases, critical care and sleep disorders at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital. “Sleep disorders can independently lead to diabetes and other metabolic disorders.” Insomnia is particularly worrisome. Dr Bhatia warns that not only can it be a precursor to depression, but long-term insomnia can actually cause depression. Similarly, many people think stress causes insomnia. “Often it is insomnia that causes stress,” says Karnik. - See more at: http://www.hindustantimes.com/brunch/brunch-stories/can-t-sleep-sound-the-alarm/article1-1083497.aspx#sthash.N114s8kK.dpuf

Even I consulted a lot many clinicians in my native place but no relief rather popping all different kinds of pills was my usual routine I got to read about Dr Manvir Bhatia while surfing the net & decided to consult her & I would like to appreciate the patient listening along with judicious use of medications that Dr Bhatia adopts really made me confident & believing in me that my health issues will surely get addressed I hereby state that I got to see the results after first 2-4 months of my consultation; She has been really kind enough to have a word even telephonically & offer a piece of advise if I could not come to see her in Delhi After 1 year of treatment there was a significant difference in my sleeping hours,my temperament & my attitude towards life. I was able to engage myself throughout the day & my mood started lifting up Now iam completely fit & my medications are now stopped . I extend my sincere thanks to Dr Manvir Bhatia who has been instrumental in terms of offering support,guidance & helped me to improve my quality of life
