Good Night Sleep Tight

From 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies — "General Secrets"

 

 

 

Secret 7-Babies need both quality and quantity of sleep.

                               This means getting:

  • The right kind of sleep-unfragmented, uninterrupted and "motionless." Don't wake your baby to eat unless he physically needs to eat, and no rocking, swinging or car riding, as movement keeps the brain in a lighter sleep, which is not as restorative to the brain as a deep sleep.
  •  The right timing-as in consistent bedtimes, wake-up times and nap times.
  • The right amount of sleep (see the average sleep requirements for kids of different ages). Your child shouldn't vary from these numbers by more than an hour.

      Secret 8-Nobody puts you to sleep at night, so your baby needs to learn to do it, too.

      You figured out a long time ago the tricks that help you fall asleep: a warm bath, a good book, imagining something pleasant-like walking along a beautiful beach.  Your baby will also need to learn how to drift off by herself.  Teaching her how is your job.
