Baby nap

If your baby does not sleep well during the first few months of life, you can try to reduce the waking time by 15 minutes. When over-stimulated, she will have difficulty falling asleep and taking naps. The way to prevent this from happening is to pay attention to her “drowsy” signs and make sure to remove them when she is drowsy.

Some parents think that letting their children cry is harmful to them. Fifteen or twenty minutes of crying will not harm your child physically or mentally. Babies will learn to calm themselves down and fall asleep on their own, but only if you allow it. It is very important for babies to learn to fall asleep on their own so that they can calm down when they wake up in the middle of the night. Otherwise, you may have a child who hasn’t slept for many years.

Regular sleep patterns and regular eating habits are interrelated, so let’s take a look at the life stages of babies:

* Newborn: Your newborn will sleep 16 to 20 hours a day, including a nap between feedings. After feeding the baby, let them stay awake briefly, and then let them lie down before they become over-excited.

* Two months: Starting from two months, your child should be able to try to calm himself down at nap and bedtime. It is normal for the baby to cry when lying down, but it does not matter. If he cries for more than 10-15 minutes, go in and see him. Until he calms down, don’t hug him, pat his butt, or gently rub his back.

* 3-6 months: After about 3-6 months, your baby will stop taking a nap. Usually they don’t need to take a third nap or nap so frequently. He may be a bit fussy and may want to take a nap, but if you want him to go to bed at the right time and get a good night’s sleep, you need to work hard to keep him awake.

* Over 16 months: When your child is 16 to 20 months old, they usually stop taking naps and sleep longer. Babies of this age usually sleep 10-12 hours a night and take 2-3 hours nap.

Basic rules of nap
1. You decide the start and end time of the nap, not the baby.
2. If your baby is over 4 months old, he or she will cry when he or she wakes up when he is sleep deprived. She may have dirty diapers, in an uncomfortable position, or cold/hot. Solve the problem and encourage her to go back to sleep. Babies who have enough rest wake up happily, can talk, and are in good spirits.
