How can I correct irregular sleep habits in an infant?


Answer by  babysitternumber1 (13)

Implement routines in the evening like reading a bedtime story. After this ritual you have to bring the child back to bed without any talk if it gets up again.

This depends on the baby's age. A child younger than three months is usually waking due to hunger and it's best to respond accordingly. After three months, and assurance of a full tummy you can work on regular sleep habits. Pick appropriate nap and sleep times and lay the baby down according to your schedule.

Like any bad habits, the best way to break them is through getting into a new routine which is better for your infant and you.

That is a problem that all infants have. They do not understand that we have schedule and they need to follow it. I would not worry about it too much.

Try to make a bedtime routine and stick to it, and make sure that your little one goes to bed with a full tummy.
