Someone please tell me how I get her to sleep at night and not during the day . If she would sleep as good as she dose during the day at night, that would be great:sonicjay:
white noise. in the womb, the babies are accustomed to all the noise of your body (or hers) from the crashing of heart valves to the rushing of blood flowing, to the rumbles of belly gas and stomach acids digesting food.
somehow, we think that by giving them silence they'll sleep... ours literally would sleep through the vacuum running under their bassinet back in the day.
that being said, the lack of sleep will likely return when they struggle to potty train as well.
the only other thing I can suggest is to just persevere - depending on what you believe, we as a species have been managing it for millennium...
BWAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!Someone please tell me how I get her to sleep at night and not during the day . If she would sleep as good as she dose during the day at night, that would be great:sonicjay:
For the mostpart, that was my experience with our daughter. The other thing I will add is just make sure that when the baby wakes up in the middle of the night, you keep the lights dim. I think the mistake a lot of people make is that they go down to the living room, turn on the lights, tv, etc to pass the time while they're up.My boy had the sleep schedule down at around 6 weeks. He's been sleeping all night ever since. You just have to give her a little more time.
They now link pacifiers to ear infections. The constant sucking keeps the ear canal open at the back of the sinus cavity and suseptible(sp) to bacteria thus causing infections.Another thing.
Before he takes a nap or goes to bed for the night, I turn everything off. Tv, most of the lights. It's not a problem for him to want to sleep if there's no stimulation. My kid is 17 months and this is always how I've done it, and it's always worked. He's been sleeping 11 or 12 hours a night ever since 6 weeks or so. The bitch is going to be when she starts teething. It's not just the pain of the teeth coming in, it's the diaper rash and runny nose that comes with it. Ear infections are another one of my favorites. Go out and buy a big bottle of liquid tylenon, liquid motrin and the baddest diaper rash cream you can find. You'll need it before you know it. Ambesol too.
