Getting Your Baby to Sleep
Getting Your Baby to Sleep

Good sleep for your baby or toddler doesn’t always have to be overly complicated. Nor does it have to involve ‘crying it out’ or traditional “sleep training methods” often used by doctors. Sometimes improving your child’s sleep is a really simple fix.

Baby Sleep Training

Check out our 5 proven steps for improving your child’s sleep:

Sleep Environment

Sleep environment is one of those things that often gets easily overlooked because of stress and anxiety about ensure you are doing everything else correctly. Sleep environment is all about the sleep space in which your baby or toddler sleeps in and ensuring it promotes good sleep. Having a dark room is essential for the production of melatonin (AKA the ‘sleepy hormone’) and having the room at the correct temperature is also important. Babies and toddlers will pick up on small changes to their sleep environment such as a light that was on outside of their room when they went to sleep being switched off by 1am in the morning. These changes can affect their sleep so it’s important to keep the sleep environment the same throughout the night if possible.

Awake Times

Having the right awake times for your baby is crucial to your baby settling easily and sleeping and napping well. A baby who isn’t awake long enough between naps or who only naps for short periods might fight going to sleep because they’re not tired enough. A baby who is awake for too long between naps will also fight sleep due to overtiredness. Awake times are constantly changing as your baby grows and develops – so the awake time for a 2 week old baby will be vastly different to the awake time of an 8 week old baby.

Bedtime Routine

Babies can get overstimulated very easily and some wind-down time before a nap as well as bedtime at night is important to let your baby get in the zone for sleep. This also signals to your baby or toddler that naptime or bedtime routine is approaching and act as a sleep cue in their day. Positive bedtime and naptime routine includes ensuring your little one has a full tummy, bath, massage, cuddles or a book.

Settling

A baby’s ability to settle to sleep depends on their age and whether they actually have learnt the skill of self setting. Before the 4 month regression hits, there is absolutely nothing wrong with settling your baby completely to sleep. If possible, it’s a good idea to settle them to sleep in their bed as it will help them learn this skill the older they get. As your baby gets older, they will slowly learn to self settle and there are different methods you can use to promote this skill being learn.

Baby Sleep Training

Age Appropriate Routine

Ensuring your baby is on an age appropriate routine is crucial to promoting good sleep habits. This includes nap length as well as awake times. Some babies need a hand regulating their nap lengths so that they nap for the perfect amount, at the optimum times of the day, to lead to easy settling and good night time sleep. Some babies love to sleep in the day and are then up all night because they’ve had too much day sleep and genuinely aren’t tired enough for a deeper sleep overnight! Overtiredness and undertiredness will both affect your baby or toddler’s ability to fall asleep and stay asleep of a night time. So, age appropriate routines including nap times, nap length and awake times are very important.
