You had prepared to spend a few sleepless nights after the birth of your baby. But things had to get better by the day. Now, he wakes up several times a night, goes back to sleep only in your arms, sleeps like a dormouse during the day and asks for you as soon as you go to bed. What can you do?
Who disturbs it?
- Your baby. He is sometimes grumpy, has trouble getting to sleep.
- You. You can not stand to see him crying and you start to run out.
CASE BY CASE SOLUTION
He sleeps anytime
- You come home from work, eager to cuddle your toddler: he sleeps soundly. At the weekend, you shift his bedtime hoping for a good morning sleep: he wakes up in the middle of the night. Would not it be a little annoying?
What has to be done
- Be patient. Your baby needs a few months to keep up with the pace of a day. At birth, he sleeps sixteen to twenty hours a day. At 3 months, he can sleep six hours in a row, but not always at night! It is only around 6 months that he can "make his nights". In the meantime, it's up to you to agree at your own pace. No need to wake him for a feed or play, it disturbs his internal clock.
- Learn to decipher the signs he sends you: he yawns, rubs his eyes, fiddling with his ear? It's time to go to bed.
