Every Baby is Different: Guidance in getting your baby to sleep well

 by: Yohannes Tedjasukmana

While you are pregnant and even after your baby is born, you will get advice from all angles. Some of the advice will make you laugh, other advice will make you mad and other advice will make you discouraged that it didn’t work. The most important thing to remember as a new parent is that every baby is different and you have to find what works for you and your baby. With the advice you are about to get, take it in stride, and don’t get mad or discouraged if it doesn’t work for you. Deciding how best to help your baby sleep is a spur of the moment decision, but hopefully this guide will give you a couple of tips to fall back on when all else fails.

Crying is OK

Letting your baby cry when it is bedtime is okay. By picking up your baby, you are teaching him or her that all they have to do is cry to get your attention. The best way to define their bedtime is for you to stick to it. Talk to your doctor to find out if your baby should be sleeping through the night. When he gives the ok, usually when your baby is eating solid food and is at least 3-4 months old. Although it can be a heart-wrenching experience, your baby will usually not cry for more than 3 or 4 nights before they understand that when they are put down, it is time to sleep.
