How To Help Your Baby Sleep Longer

    When you breast feed your baby, allow him to finish the first breast that you offer. This gives the baby the best milk, which is the hind- milk that helps provide wider gaps for his night time feeding. This also is quite good for helping your baby sleep through the night.

    Carry Them

    Holding and carrying the baby helps the baby relax, especially during the evening hours. This relaxes the baby thereby leading to an easy conversion to sleep.

    Keep Them Calm

    Keeping the baby calm especially during the evenings will ensure a good night’s sleep for him or her. If a bath helps to relax the baby and ensures more sleep during the night, it is a good idea to bathe him before bedtime.

    Breastfeed In A Dark Room

    If the baby wakes up and wants to feed, try not to have too much light in the room while feeding the baby. The baby should realize that night is for sleeping. If possible, do not change diapers during the night.

    Take A Walk

    Walking in the sun and taking in fresh air is good for both the mother and the baby. Taking walks with your baby in a sling or baby stroller can help relieve stress. You must also rest when your baby is sleeping, especially if the baby is a high-maintenance baby.
