February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 161

Trying to get your baby to sleep through the night can be a frustrating experience, but also a rewarding accomplishment when they do sleep through the night consistently. Sometimes baby start by sleeping through the night then will begin to wake up again, making this a journey for parents. Baby sleep is an important factor in a child's routine and life, and there are many tips you can use to help make this an easy transition. Whether it is your first baby or you're third every baby is different and individual.

There are many things that as a parent you can do to help get your baby sleep through the night. The biggest thing is to develop a realistic attitude about night time routines for your baby and be flexible because every day is different. This is where as a parent you can create a secure environment that allows your baby to feel secure enough to relax and sleep in. By taking time to set up a secure atmosphere for your child it will help your child remain in that secure state later in life.

Keeping a routine will also help your baby sleep through the night. This is probably one of the most important factors in a child's routine because naps and bed time are a place of rest, so it needs to be a routine time. Do this by waking up your baby if they aren't up at a specific time, allow one or two short naps during the day and ensure they get to bed at a reasonable time. For example, if you allow your child to go to bed at 6pm at night by 12am they have already slept 6 hours and may need a feeding or diaper change. By adjusting your schedule and routine to best fit both your needs, you are more likely to see the results you desire. Also be open to the fact that the baby may just need a diaper change and be okay to be rocked back to sleep.

Another way that as a parent you can help your baby sleep through the night is to keep the evening calm. This can be done through quiet time, a bath, a lullaby, a short walk if weather is permitting, and being rocked to sleep. This allows the baby to start relaxing after dinner time instead of having them alert with loud toys, music etc.

Overall there are many techniques a parent can use but these are just to name a few of the ways you can create a positive and healthy environment to help your baby sleep through the night.
