Baby is not sleeping? You may ask: “How to help my baby sleep better?”. It is not easy to help your baby sleep well when he or she wakes up in the middle of the night crying. However, doing this will be helpful for mama and baby.
Our baby son is now 10 months old (has he grown already?!) and in the last couple of weeks, he’s started waking several times during the night (as opposed to the once or twice a night that he used to do). I will say that I am lucky that with him sleeping in his own room since he was 7 weeks old, nurses most nights without waking us up. But it’s not without wanting to give him a good slap! However, after doing a bit of research and then implementing some of them, I’ve found 8 things that help our little man sleep better at night.
A baby’s sleep is a very important part of their young lives. It’s an achievable goal to have your baby consistently sleeping 8 hours a night. Raising your baby to be a great sleeper is also a great way to teach them other things. It sets the outlook for the rest of their lives. I was able to accomplish this with my daughter and it has given me the ability to enjoy my time with her more, as she does not need constant attention and “ear-to-ear” grins every other minute in the day.
Although your baby may give up regular nighttime feedings on his own by the time he’s three months old, do not expect – or insist – that such a young infant give them up altogether, all of a sudden.
But if your child is at least three months old, still nurses or requires a bottle at bedtime, and needs to eat again several more times during the night, then the extra feedings may well be causing the extra wakings. If that is the case, you may be able to help him sleep better by decreasing the number of these feedings.
However, if your baby takes in a substantial amount of food – from extended feedings at the breast, or bottles adding up to more than eight ounces over the course of the night – then he has learned that certain times of night are mealtimes. To eliminate these feedings suddenly wouldn’t be wise or nice.
The amount of milk or juice your child drinks during the night may be considerable. If he finishes four full eight-ounce bottles, that is a large amount for even an adult to consume overnight.
If you have concluded that excessive and unnecessary feedings at night are disrupting your child’s sleep, you will be relieved to learn that although such feedings can lead to severe sleep disturbances, the problem is also one of the easiest to fix.
Two things need to be addressed. The first is to reduce or eliminate the nighttime feedings to avoid their various sleep-disrupting effects. The second is to teach your child new sleep associations so that he can fall asleep without being held, without eating, and without sucking on the breast or bottle. You can do these things at the same time, or one at a time.
To fix the problems caused by the feedings, start by gradually decreasing the number of nighttime feedings, their size, or both. Just don’t stop the feedings suddenly. A program designed to allow new patterns to develop will be easier for him to follow.
Your goal is to gradually move your child’s feelings of hunger out of the nighttime and into the daytime. Once there is only a single remaining nighttime feeding left, you can choose to stop that feeding right away – instead of gradually – if you prefer, since the total amount of ingested food during the night is now fairly small.
Feeding your baby at night or letting him fall asleep while breastfeeding or drinking from a bottle leaves milk in his mouth. This milk rich in sugar will highly contribute to bad oral hygiene and early cavities.
Another day, another sleepless night. As the weeks go by, you’ve tried everything to help baby sleep. You’ve researched and come up with nothing. So maybe it’s time to ask yourself, is it ok for my baby to be sleeping in my bed? THE ANSWER IS NO! You both need a restful night of sleep. When the baby is a newborn, having the crib in your room is practical for those frequent waking-up but after two to three months, you will both sleep better if you have your own room.
