It is often one of the most challenging tasks for new moms to sleep train their babies. That said, it is not as difficult as it is often made out to be.
Here are some simple tips that you may follow to sleep train your tiny one.
Firstly, little ones (less than a year old) have the habit of falling asleep every 40 to 45 minutes. Make sure they sleep undisturbed during these frequent naps.
If you find that you baby is regularly waking up prematurely out of these naps, try to find the reasons for it and eliminate them.
Keep the sleeping chamber of your little one dark and noise-free. Use block-out curtains, white noise devices, etc. for this purpose.
When sleep training slightly older babies, follow a consistent bedtime routine such as nursing, snuggling or giving baths. This will act as a signal to the little one that it is time to fall asleep.
