Understand Your Baby’s Sleep Needs
During the initial two months, your toddler’s want to consume overrules her desire to sleep. She might feed nearly every two hours if you are breastfeeding, and a little less frequently if you bottle-feed.
Your child may sleep from 10 to 18 hours daily, occasionally for 3 to 4 hours at one time. But childs do not understand the difference between night and day. So they sleep without a respect for what time it really is. Meaning your child’s wide-awake time might be from 1 a.m. to five a.m.
But just because you believe that your baby is becoming a wonderful routine — normally between 6 and 9 weeks — ordinary developmental phases can throw off things. For example, as soon as your baby starts to associate bedtime with being left alone, she could begin crying simply to keep you around.
Set a Bedtime Routine
A study of 405 mothers — with childs between 7 months and 36 months old — showed that babies who followed a nightly bedtime routine went to sleep easier, sleep better, and cry out in the middle of the night less often. Baby Care Association conducted a survey that those parents who use waterproof baby sheets, provide desired sleep to their new born babies.
Put Your Sleepy Baby to Bed
Beginning when your child is 6 to 12 months old, soothe her till she’s drowsy. When she is on the brink of sleep, then put her down and let her drift off by herself. Do not wait until she is completely asleep in your arms; this might be a behaviour that might grow to be a battle to do away with afterwards in her life.
This routine will teach your baby to soothe herself to sleep, and you won’t need to rock or cuddle her to sleep every time she wakes up during the night.
