Sleep Tactics for New Born Babies
The road to sleep is a bumpy. As babies navigate each growth “bump” and “curve” filled with the new developmental milestones between 4 & 6 months, there are going to be “deep valleys” filled with sleep disruptions. These milestones include growing teeth, learning to roll, crawl, sit, pull to stand, discovery of their feet, a new vowel/consonant sound. There are several key components when it comes to a baby's sleep. The first is the ability to self sooth. A baby will cry (signal) when they wake until they learn to fall back asleep on their own. Some babies learn this on their own, while MANY others need our help as they move from being “signalers” to “soothers”. Allowing for some supervised struggle (cry) for a few naps and nighttime sleep gives them the time and opportunity to learn to fall back asleep. After a few sessions of these “struggle opportunities,” babies typically start sleeping better. Techniques and tools such as a blankie (aka lovey) may be used to help babies
