CONSIDER FOR KNOWING BABY SLEEP

CONSIDER FOR KNOWING BABY SLEEP
Illustration
Sleep matter is one of serious problem for parents. Parents today put themselves under immense pressure to be perfect and having a baby who sleeps well is seen as a sign of being successful parents - despite the fact young babies need to feed at night and take months to settle into a good night-time routine.

Getting your baby to sleep through the night is every first time parent biggest concern. So here is my special 'Seven Secrets' guide to getting it right:

  • Follow a bedtime ritual consistently every night. Babies and toddlers relish routine and ritual, they like to know what's coming next, they like certainty.
  • Treat every hour between 7pm & 7am as night time which means dark and quiet with no talking and no games or activities. Baby will soon understand the difference between night-time and daytime.
  • Never let your baby fall asleep in your arms or while feeding - always lay your baby down awake.
  • Use 'Spaced Soothing' to calm baby and reassure him that you are there for him without having to pick him up. 'Spaced Soothing' techniques are explained fully in the 'Baby Secrets' book.
  • Don't rush to your baby at every sound - many of the noises a baby makes are his attempts to fall asleep.
  • Give your baby a late-night feed or 'dream feed' at the same time every night even if you have to wake him to do so. Continue until he is ready to sleep through the night.
  • Set a base time for his middle of the night feed and never feed before it: stretch that time gradually until your baby sleeps through the night.

A tip for twin babies is to recreate the closeness they experienced in the womb. This can be done by placing them side by side but feet to end. You will know when it is time to separate them, they will wriggle so much they will wake each other. (by baby-secrets.info)

When the baby ready to sleep?

Some of new parent do not have idea to know when the baby ready to sleep, this information give some way to know how the sign that baby ready to sleep.

If you can pick up on the clues that tell you your baby is ready to sleep it will be easier to help him settle in his cot or crib. Throughout the day and night there will be ‘sleep windows’ - drowsy periods when your baby is more ready to fall asleep. If you can recognise these times you can use them to help establish good sleep habits:

  • Look out for signs that your baby is tired and put him down to sleep then - it will be easier for him to fall asleep at these times
  • Start to get him ready for sleep when he is still in an active phase so that he can enjoy his bath and be dried and dressed just as he is beginning to feel drowsy
  • If you miss one drowsy period you may have to wait an hour or so for another, as the whole cycle takes about this long to complete
