How to regulate your baby’s sleep disorders
It is difficult for a baby to fall asleep, and he wakes up many times in the evening. Every day, he has a top problem at home. Why does the baby have a sleep disorder?
Sleep disorders Infants with sleep disorders, including difficulty falling asleep, waking up at night, eating at night, early and interrupted sleep cycles (ie, sleep early, wake up early; sleep late, wake up late), etc.
Sleep disorders are related to your baby’s physical, psychological, and temperament characteristics, and are the result of interactions between your own characteristics and the external environment, such as parenting styles, disturbances in the surrounding environment, and food allergies.
Babies who have difficulty falling asleep and who wake up at night are slow to fall asleep. They need to go through a light sleep state of about 20 minutes before entering the deep sleep stage with the assistance of their parents.
I believe most parents have the experience that the baby seems to be asleep, but will wake up and cry as soon as it is put down.
This is because he has not entered deep sleep and needs more breastfeeding, soothing, patting, shaking, etc.
At night, it is normal for a baby to wake up after a period of sleep.
If you don’t have high blood pressure or urine, you usually move a little bit and then move on to the next sleep cycle.
However, if the baby has developed the habit of being hugged, patted, shaken, or covered with nipples (pacifiers) to fall asleep, after waking up at night and discovering that the situation is not the same as when he fell asleep, he will cry until he meets the requirements. This phenomenonCalled “sleeping conditions.”
Correction: When the baby starts crying, you can let him cry for 1-2 minutes before giving comfort, but do not pick up the baby or feed him.
If you cry again, wait longer (2-5 minutes) before giving comfort, and repeat this many times.
Don’t be distressed, stick to it, it usually works on the third night.
The baby will gradually cry from crying to weeping, and then stop crying and fall asleep by itself.
Babies who eat at night 3-4 months old can give more positive stimulation during the day, such as talking, touching, playing, and gradually stop breastfeeding at night (including artificial replacement).
This is good for cultivating your baby’s good rest and eating habits.
Some parents think that the baby crying at night must be more and more unbearable, so they are busy feeding, but after the baby falls asleep again, his digestive system has to “work the night shift”, causing excessive urination and other conditionsWake up again.
Let your baby eat enough before going to bed, such as milk and some rice noodles, to make the milk thicker and hungry, and try to make your baby drink less water before going to bed.
After the baby wakes up at night, feed the baby directly. Don’t worry about the baby being hungry. His main energy consumption is during the day.
If your baby is still crying, give a small amount of milk.
The milk powder should also be made a little thinner than usual, and slowly he will prolong the time of continuous sleep, thus gradually quitting the milk at night.
Early and delayed sleep cycles Most babies sleep between 8pm and 7am.
However, some babies start to sleep in the evening, and wake up early in the morning, and some babies fall asleep and naturally wake up later than normal.
The baby sleeps early and wakes up late and wakes up late, both of which conflict with the parents ‘sleep time, which reduces the parents’ sleep time.
Over time, parents will feel very tired because of this.
Gradually reduce the time to bed.
For babies who go to bed early and wake up early, go to bed 10-15 minutes later than the previous day, so that the wake-up time in the morning will gradually change.
Gradually fall asleep early.
For babies who wake up late and wake up late, wake up the baby 10-15 minutes earlier than the day before, so you can gradually advance his time to sleep, and at the same time, gradually adjust the time of feeding and nap during the day.
Do not arrange a nap within 4 hours before falling asleep at night to avoid difficulty falling asleep at night.
Of course, the causes of babies’ sleep disorders include too wet or too tight diapers, uncomfortable pajamas, newborns at this time, overeating or feeling obese, and diseases.
