If the baby cries due to hunger or fear, it should be soothed immediately. Pediatricians say that especially if the baby cries because of hunger, they should be kept in the same room and fed, only then will the baby go back to sleep.
Children are always active. They like to spend the day running, dancing and playing with toys. Day or night, there is no time or period for children to play. Especially some children will not sleep even at night time. No matter how beautifully mothers tell stories and sing songs to lull them to sleep, they will not fall asleep unless they are actively listening to them. That’s why today we’re going to learn some expert-recommended tips on how to get babies to pretend to sleep…
Do n’t force sleep patterns: Although it is the parents’ duty to make the child accustomed to the same sleep pattern, do not force sleep on children by saying ‘sleep, sleep’. So you can develop the habit of taking a bath at night, singing, listening to soft music, reading story books, gently stroking the baby in bed.
Don’t break the routine: A child who sings, sings and runs around needs rest. Only then can you crawl the next day without fatigue and with the same enthusiasm. So follow the same time for sleep everyday. Changing the baby to the same sleep time without changing it for any reason will encourage normal sleep.
Allow time to prepare: Keep the room quiet and dimly lit throughout the night to differentiate the baby’s room from the day. If the baby cries due to hunger or fear, it should be soothed immediately. Pediatricians say that especially if the baby cries because of hunger, they should be kept in the same room and fed, only then will the baby go back to sleep.
Respect routines, preferences: Respect routines, preferences: Infants and toddlers use their daily habits to make sense of situations. So young children should be given time to understand common events and procedures and learn everything. Likewise, they should be allowed to continue with their usual habits.
Reduce noise, light: When the baby needs feeding or attention at night, you should adopt low light in the room and soft talking. Then the child will understand the situation and start sleeping again.
Do n’t give screen time: Mothers should not allow children to use phones or tablets before going to sleep at night. Because research has found that the light emitted from screens can regulate sleep hormones in children. So it is better to avoid looking at all screens like cell phone, TV, computer, laptop, tablet an hour before going to bed.
Have fun: Encourage your toddler to run, jump, and play outside. This will help them spend their energy better. Also, spend some time talking to your baby before putting them to sleep, this will reduce their stress and encourage them to sleep better.
