Babies can be really annoying sometimes. No matter how much you love them, they’ll always come a time when you would just desperately want to make them stop crying or screaming. For under slept and overwork people, it becomes the most stressful part of the day. To be honest, the first year of a baby’s life, no matter how much you try to sleep train, you will have to deal with all the fussiness. Being a parent, you have to bear with it until it goes away. Even though it cannot be avoided, it sure can be helped. Here are some tips to make those parts of your day a little less stressful
- Turn off all the lights in the room, even the little nook and crannies that spew out little rays.
- Do not use mobile phones for television near the sleeping time of a baby. Not only it gives off light but gives off blue light with which hinders sleep in adults and babies.
- Make the room not too hot, but just cool enough for an uncomfortable night. It is hard to sleep when you are burning up.
- Make the use of sounds to induce sleep in your baby. White noises and static sound actually mimics the sound in the womb, which comforts the baby.
- Try different sleeping techniques like Cry It Out. Don’t jump in just as they start screaming but let them soothe themselves. This will help you in the long run.
- Cuddling up the baby actually helps them go to sleep way faster. If you wrap them in a warm garment, some babies might fall asleep the next second
- Make them take naps even in the morning. When they are sleepy, get cranky and in turn, have a hard time going to sleep. If they well sleep in the morning, they won’t fuss at night. Going to sleep early can make them feel less irritated, as well.
- Use a pacifier or other objects to keep them distracted; some of these activities make the baby sleepy.
- Do not expose your baby to noise or movement when nap time comes.
As a parent, your baby is getting enough sleep as the first year of life is vital for the growth and development of your child. Don’t forget to get some shut-eye for yourselves as well. If you are experiencing Burn Out symptoms, you should seek your doctor for good advice. Do not hesitate to ask for help if you think you need it.
