2018.05.17 908

Tired of your baby staying awake late into the night? Learn how to get him (and you!) a good night's sleep with these baby sleep solutions. Awake baby at night isn’t a good idea for working parents who need to sleep to repair their brain’s neurons for tomorrow. Most parents are struggling with crying awake baby at night. And this is not just a coincidence, it’s definitely fixable and you parents can teach them how to. Here are 4 baby sleep solutions from HappyMom.Life that can help exhausted parents out.   




Get Baby to Sleep!


That newborn of yours took a while to figure out the difference between night and day -- and you expected this. But you didn't anticipate that his whole first year could leave you feeling like you got a job working the graveyard shift. Take him sleep earlier. After 4 months, a baby's natural preference is to sleep. He just doesn't always know how to stay asleep. But even bad habits are usually fixable in just a few days.

 



Getting A Newborn Baby To Sleep Through The Night


Can't get baby to sleep continuously through the night without waking up? Use a white-noise machine or a fan to create a gentle hum that masks other sounds. A whooshing white noise becomes a sleep association. If you turn it on as part of your baby's bedtime routine, it'll cue her to relax and go to sleep.

 



Avoid Soothing Baby Too Long


If she's going through a developmental growth spurt, like learning to crawl, she may be too excited about practicing her new skill to quickly fall back asleep. Be firm about the fact that nighttime is not the time to play. If your baby is chatting and cooing, ignore her. "Hopefully, she'll entertain herself until she decides to go back to sleep. But if she's crying, your baby may be experiencing separation anxiety, which usually comes with new motor development. When this happens more than 30 minutes before her typical wake-up time, soothe her for a few minutes, tell her you'll see her soon, then leave the room.




Stop the Nighttime Feedings


The one thing that seemed to soothe your colicky daughter was nursing. The advice is putting the baby down sleepy but awake, then checking in every three minutes until she nodded off. You can start slowly reduce feeding baby at late night. If she's getting multiple bottles, eliminate one at a time over a four-day period. You can also try decreasing the amount of formula in each bottle. When she realizes that milk is no longer on the menu, your baby will stop angling for it.
