How to Make Baby Sleep Faster

Making baby sleep is a daunting task. If baby is in a habit of going to sleep at wrong time the baby may wake up again in the middle of night. Therefore, it is very necessary for mothers to make baby sleep at right time. At the same time mothers must learn to make babies sleep faster. Read on to know some tips for making your baby sleep faster.


It is very tiresome and disturbing for a mother to see her baby cry and unable to sleep. Any parent would like to give maximum comfort to her baby so that he gets relaxed and sleeps well. It is only when the baby sleeps well, he is calm, happy and stays relaxed most of the time. It is very important for a baby to sleep well. 


Tips to Make Baby Sleep Faster

  • First of all calm yourself because babies catch the worries and hurry of their mothers and cannot relax and sleep in this condition. If you are restless, your baby will not sleep. So, you need to calm down and then try to make your baby sleep with slow and comforting ways.
  • Making a bedtime routine is must. Most of the mothers do not pay attention to this and when the baby does not sleep on time, they get annoyed and frustrated. As soon as your infant is ready to stay awake for sometime, you should make him understand when the time to sleep is and when not. You will have to put in some effort so that he does not sleep untimely and stay awake during night or daytime.
  • Play soft music when it is time to sleep. Music soothes the baby and helps her stay calm and relaxed. As soon as your baby is relaxed, he will fall asleep. This is the proven way to make baby sleep faster and has been in practice since years.
  • Make her crib with fresh sheets and arrange it neatly to make it comfortable.
  • Having a bath before sleep also helps baby sleep faster. If your baby is bathed and fed well, he will sleep easily and without much effort. Make sure he is also comfortable in the crib.
  • Make the baby’s room free of any sunlight. Do not make it completely dark because that would be not right for the safety of your baby.
  • Repeat the actions that you take to make your baby sleep every day in the same sequence. Babies get habituated to routines very fast. As soon as you will take one or two steps, he will understand the meaning.

These are some of the tips that are helpful to make a normal baby sleep faster. However, if you find that your baby is restless during sleep and wakes up very soon, find out if there is any health problem. Consult the doctor and get it checked.

If the problems are such that can be sorted out, try and see whether it works or not. For example, sometimes the babies cannot sleep even in a slight sound. So try to make her room sound free as far as possible.

If your baby is a newborn do not try these steps because newborn babies do not take up routines. Also, a newborn baby will sleep for the most part of the day and night. This is not the time to set any kind of routine. If you promptly attend your babies in the first few months, you will find that it is easier to soothe your baby and this makes nighttime parenting much easier.

Be aware that not everything that is suggested will work with your baby. All infants are different and unique and so it is possible your baby has something unique and if you are able to find that out, parenting will be undemanding for you.

these tips are good but for me they are not working. I tried hard to make my baby fall asleep but it seems impossible. she sleeps when she feels like. I have not yet set a bedtime routine for her as she is just three months old.

You are so right. We moms need to calm down first, which usually proves to be challenging when you are dealing with a fussy baby and you are exhausted! If you consider it, music and water calm us down or we wouldn't spend so much on beach vacations and CDs. It only makes sense it should work with babies. We have found the sound of ocean waves does the trick for our baby girl. A friend also recommended a Sleepy Bee. (http://www.sleepybees.com). It's great when I'm out running errands or in a restaurant a naptime.
