    Babies usually sleep around 16 hours per day, but their sleep is broken down in stretches which are not continuous.

    Here are a few tips for helping your baby sleep through the night:

    Routine

    Stick to a fixed routine. If the baby starts waking up late in the morning to compensate for his sleeping time, start waking the baby at an earlier hour every day so that he sleeps more at night with the rest of the family.

    Lighting

    Allow your baby to nap in an area with plenty of lights. This ensures that the baby takes a shorter nap, which allows the baby to sleep better during the night. This is very useful for helping your baby sleep through the night.

    Nurse During The Day

    Sometimes babies seem are reluctant towards being fed during the daytime. Very young babies are usually very interested in what is going on around them which basically dulls their appetite. Feeding the baby during the day will ensure that the baby meets his nutritional needs and help him sleep better at night.
