Perhaps the most important dream of all parents, in addition to the child's good appetite, is a sound and healthy sleep of their beloved baby. But many families struggle to get their toddler to sleep more than five hours a night, let alone sleep throughout the night.
First of all, think about your lifestyle, analyze the manner of communication and behavior in society, in particular with a child. This applies to those who like to talk in a raised voice. Completely revise your previous habits and foundations and create an atmosphere of comfort and tranquility in the house. Try not to pour out negative emotions on each other in the presence of the baby, because later the child will be restless and capricious, constantly waking up in the middle of the night with anxious crying. And you will ask each other with a surprised face, "What's the matter? After all, the baby is fed and does not need to change diapers."
The second mistake many mothers make is not breastfeeding their baby too early. They cannot imagine how this restricts the baby not only in vital trace elements and vitamins that will help him grow and gain strength, but also deprive him of his attention. Therefore, try to continue breastfeeding for as long as possible. When the mother feeds the baby every time before bed, he develops a certain habit, which gives a signal on a subconscious level that it is time for him to fall asleep. Breastfeeding is a kind of "sleeping pill" for the baby. As a rule, children of those mothers who were breastfed sleep much more peacefully than those children who were deprived of it.
And, of course, the daily routine for the child is very important. Develop it from birth. Teach your toddler to sleep and eat, play, swim, and other necessary procedures. The baby will develop reflexes that will help him navigate throughout the day, he will be more balanced and contented and therefore will feel more cheerful during the day. And you will get enough sleep at night.
