Getting required hours of sleep is the major challenge that most of the parents face during their early stages of parenthood. Irregular sleep is unhealthy for both baby and mom and it even affects the entire day by making the baby more inattentive, fussy and cranky.
Here are few strategies listed out that helps in making the child to sleep:
Schedule a regular bed time for your baby.
On every night, try to skip one feeding and make the child sleep for more than 6 hours.
Handle the crying baby in a professional way by assessing the type of cry before you think to feed milk and calm down the baby.
Give little more extra attention if your baby needs it by patting on his/her back.
Try different means of entertainment before feeding food and track the way in which the baby will consume food.
According to mommyrelief.com, it is important to set a timer and schedule the baby activities so that they get habituated to these activities.
