Getting Your Baby To Sleep Through The Night
Getting a baby to sleep consistently through the night can seem like the ultimate unattainable goal.
As a nanny for more than 30 years, Nanny Robina has had the pleasure of sleeping many babies. She knows that the same method may not work on all babies, that’s why she has made it her career to help parents with their parenting challenges.
Now you can get the support of someone who is passionate about raising children and who has made it her career to be a parenting coach.
We have tried every trick in the book. Do you still think you can help?
I would love the opportunity to try! Many times parents simply don’t stay consistent or persistent. Often if they do not see results immediately and they move on to try another technique. It just becomes a vicious circle.
How long will take to get my baby sleeping through the night?
That depends on how you manage your part. With team work, it usually takes anywhere from 3-6 nights to notice a difference. I like to remind parents that this is all about remaining consistent. After a sleep consultation, they must take what they learned from the coaching session, put it into action… and keep at it!
Finding A Routine For You And Baby
Routine? Schedule? Parents of newborns may well laugh at such concepts, but it’s crucial, for the parents as well as the child, to at least attempt to create some semblance of a timed-out day. It won’t happen right away, but by the 3 month mark, hopefully your day will start to look a bit more structured.
A baby often wakes for two reasons: hunger, or because baby is overtired. This is often due to not getting enough daytime sleep.
If your baby takes to waking up too early, move your baby’s bedtime 15 minutes earlier. It could be that your baby is overtired and needs more sleep.
If your baby wakes in the night try to soothe them back to sleep. Do not lift your baby from the crib. Make no eye contact, just enter the baby’s room, shush, then exit within 30 seconds. The point is to just reassure your baby that you’re there for them.
