Subject:  Baby cries at night
I dont know what is wrong with my baby. She is not letting me sleep the whole night. She is crying so much. I am not able to understand why she cries only at night. Is she afraid of dark. I have tried all methods to pacify her but she does not calm down at all. I feed her properly then also she wakes up at night and cries a lot. I do not know how to correct this problem.

Subject:  Good night sleep for a baby
Nighttime waking is one of the most common dilemmas for new parents. Sometimes a baby who started out sleeping through the night will begin waking again, much to the dismay of hie or her mom and dad! I wish I could offer you a magical solution to help you get more sleep at night. Here are a few simple tips you may want to try to get a bit more uninterrupted sleep:

1. Keep to a routine. If your baby wakes up late in the morning to help make up for some of his late nights, begin waking him at an earlier time each day to help encourage him to get the sleep he needs at night -- when the rest of the household sleeps.

2. When your baby naps, allow him to sleep in a well-lit area. This will help encourage shorter naps, which in turn may help him sleep better at night.

3. During the day, nurse in a quiet, darkened room. You mentioned that your son isn´ t very interested in daytime feeds. Babies of this age are often caught up in what is going on around them. Feeding him more during the day will allow him to meet his nutritional needs at a time more convenient to you.

4. Is your baby using a pacifier? If so, allow him to meet his sucking needs at your breast instead, offering nursing in lieu of the pacifier. Regular nursing sessions during the day may help to reduce his middle of the night waking.

5. When nursing, allow your baby to finish the first breast offered. This will provide him with more of your rich hindmilk, which may also help to space out his nighttime feeds.

6. Carry your baby -- with the aid of a sling or other baby carrier. This will help to keep your baby relaxed, especially during the early evening hours, encouraging an easy transition to sleep.

7. Keep the evening calm to avoid overstimulation. If a bath is relaxing for your little one, you can bathe him before bed. If it´ s too stimulating, bathe him at another time.

8. Nurse in a darkened room at night if your son wakes and wants to feed. Avoid nighttime diaper changes if at all possible. Let him know that night is for sleeping.


And don´ t forget to take care of yourself!
•Rest while your baby rests. This is especially important when you have a high-need baby.
•Take a walk. Sunshine and fresh air are good for both of you. Going out together, with your baby in a sling, baby carrier or stroller can be a great stress reliever.
Hoping these ideas help you to get some much-needed rest!

My baby wakes up at night for feed since many days. But, even if I feed my baby she does not stop crying. I do not know what makes her cry at night. If this habit of baby is not controlled, it may stay for longer. Is it normal with all the babies that they wake up in the middle of night crying?

RE:How to Develop a Sleep Routine for your Newborn
According to me this is good but then you cannot force your child to sleep as per your wish as kids as really bad in this and they have a tendency to sleep in day and get up in late night so according to me this is not the key to success, please post if i am wrong.... - Anita [View Message]
