What I mean is, you have to talk to your doctor first, try to figure out of there any issues like sleep apnea, reflux and any kind of allergies. These are kind of physical problem that can be treated medically. That’s why we suggest that you talk to your pedestrian before starting to do something on your own.
- Tips 3: Set the Sleeping Environment Right
Your baby can be an infant, or toddler or anything in between. You have to make sure that you have set the right bed environment based on baby’s age. When the baby turns to toddler from infant, you have to make sure that baby’s bed size, mattress size, and pillows are on the right size. As an example, baby needs a medium sized good quality mattress combined with a soft little pillow (larger than infant’s one) and some more.
- Tips 4: Make a Log of Your Baby’s Sleep
This is something that would help both you and your baby’s doctor to grab the problem right away. Also, as a busy parent, you can have a hard time remembering when and how much your baby has slept in last week. So, making a log can help you to understand the condition and take necessary steps accordingly.
- Tips 5: Prepare Your Baby through A Routine
If your baby is not likely to sleep much, then you need to do something to prepare him/her for the sleep. You can do some calm activities like grab its hands and legs, sing a lullaby or place baby’s favorite stuffed animal by him/her etc.
- Tips 6: Make Sure the Temperature is Fine
The temperature and humidity of the room is a big sleeping factor, especially for babies under 2 years of age. The ideal sleeping temperature is between 20 and 25 degrees. Based on the season and baby’s own preferences, this may vary a lot. However, all you have to do is, find out baby’s comfortable temperature range of temperature and sit it in that way when the baby’s about to sleep.
- Tips 7: Get Proper Amount of Darkens
Your baby may like lights in the room, or he/she can’t. As a parent, you are the one who has to find it out and make the room in that way. If your baby has trouble with lights or complete darkness, get a mix. Arrange some darkening shades surrounding the baby’s bed. Also, set a dim light instead of complete darkens, so that the darkness may not scare your baby when he’s awake.
- Tips 8: Be Consistent with Your Approach
No matter what, I have seen parents not to be so consistent about the issue of baby sleep. One of two weeks of fine steps and they think the baby has come over with it. But what you should do is, be stick to the plan that works out for the baby. No matter it’s an infant or a toddler, you have to make sure that baby consistently gets the right sleeping environment every night.
