How To Help Your Baby Sleep Through The Night

 

If you are a new parent, your quest for the solution of the crying baby in the middle of the night brought you here. First of all, don’t despair! After the first couple of months, your baby will learn the difference between daytime and nighttime. Until that happy time, the following advice can help keep your baby sleeping through the entire night.

Try not to jump to your baby’s every coo. When your little one is learning new skills like walking or crawling, chances are they will wake up in the middle of the night to try out one of their new skills. If this is the case, don’t fuss, but leave them be, they will probably get back to sleep soon. If they have separation anxiety, you should comfort them, but don’t overdo it.

White noise in the background can help if your baby wakes up to even the slightest of sounds. Not only will the sound mask all the others, but they will also become sleep-related, so every time your baby hears them, it will be easier for them to fall asleep.

If the pacifier is the problem, let it go. Babies fall asleep easier with a pacifier, but that also means they wake up when it falls out of their mouth. If you don’t want to go to your baby’s room every half an hour, let them cry it out. After a few days, they will learn to sleep without it in their mouth.

Good luck!
