The Five Steps to Getting Your Baby to Sleep Through the Night
by Shannon Glenn.

If your baby or toddler is having trouble sleeping through the
night, the first thing you should know is… you’re not alone!
Studies show that up to 30% of babies have sleep problems, and
that 75% of parents would like to change their babies’ sleep
habits.

So, as promised, here they are: The Five Steps to Getting Your Baby
to Sleep Through the Night!

Step 1: Choose an early bedtime.

The best time to put your baby or toddler to bed is sometime
between 6 and 8 o’clock in the evening. 

Step 2: Put your child to sleep in the same place every night.

Whether your child has a room of their own or shares a room with
parents or siblings, it’s important that you put your son or
daughter to sleep in the same place every night (and for naps
during the day as much as possible.) Putting your child to bed
in a familiar place lets them know they are safe and that they
are in a place where sleep is expected of them.

Step 3: Create a predictable bedtime routine.

Consistency and predictability are really important to babies and
toddlers. When they know what to expect at bedtime, it makes it
*much* easier for them to make the transition from waking to
sleeping – and that’s why creating a bedtime routine is so
important!


Step 4: Put your baby to bed AWAKE!


Step 5: If your baby wakes up during the night, wait a few minutes
before intervening.

Everyone – babies and adults alike – will actually wake up several
times every night. For most adults, these wakings are so brief that
we don’t even remember them the next morning. However, many babies
will immediately start to fuss or cry when they wake up.

This is simply because they haven’t learned how to fall asleep on
their own. If a baby has been nursed or rocked to sleep at bedtime
since birth, it’s not surprising that they wouldn’t know how to
fall asleep independently. The good news is that many babies can
figure out how to get back to sleep within just a few minutes of
waking up in the night!

If your child continues to fuss or cry for more than a few minutes,
you’ll want to go in and offer some comfort, but it’s important to
let your child do the work of falling back to sleep. You can speak
softly to your child and do some gentle rubbing or patting, but you
should avoid picking your child up and rocking or nursing back to
sleep.

So there you have it… the 5 most important things you need to
know about getting your child to sleep through the night. Of
course, it’s important to keep in mind that every child is a little
different – there’s no “magic formula” that will work 100% of the
time for every baby!
