WHY DOES MY BABY WAKE UP AT NIGHT?
Each parent has to deal with broken nights. And even if your baby goes through sleepily fast at night, there will always be periods that you are at night beside your bed.
In the first months , a baby wakes up at night because he is hungry. The stomach is too small to sleep at 8 o’clock. With the size of the stomach, sleepies become longer at night.
If a baby wakes up at 3 o’clock in the first few weeks, he will leave for 4 to 5 hours. From 6 months, a baby at night does not need any food, physically.
Sleeping your little one once , it does not mean that the broken nights are finally over. Good periods are interchanged with bad periods. Sleep wounds can also be a good idea!
There are many reasons why a child can not sleep at night: the occurrence of toothache, colds, ear infection, anxiety anxiety, too much impressions during the day … If you look at the enormous growth of a baby in the first year, it is not so crazy that he wants to be reassured by mom by night.
Many babies of 4 months suddenly sleep very badly. One reason for this may be that a baby at this age is too busy with discovering the world around him. That’s why he drinks just enough to keep the worst hunger in the daytime, but it’s too little to add. And so a meal must be taken at night. This can be solved by offering a diet more often during the day.
Another reason is that many mothers start working at this age again. The baby gets the damage at night. This is also called mongering or skin hunger.
An infamous sleeping period also takes place around 9 months when baby’s learn to roll, sit or stand. Through his enthusiasm of this new trick he is also practicing at night.
In addition, babies (and adults by the way) are waking up several times a night. Just because the sleeping pattern is so close together. Some babies fall asleep, others will call their mother by crying. Is your baby such a baby? Then you can help him with good sleep habits .
