Why won’t my baby sleep?
As your baby continues to grow it’s important to understand that their sleep patterns will change and grow with them. Babies before the age of 3 months old on average are typically supposed to sleep 16-17 hours per day while babies from 4-6 months old should be sleeping 12-16 hours per day. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services stated that it’s normal for babies to sleep a lot and they start really developing their sleeping cycle at about six months of age. So it can be very frustrating and confusing when as a parent, you aren’t able to get your baby to comfortably rest especially while raising them in a city as busy as New York. Your baby’s uneasiness could be due to something simple such as a need for better sleep hygiene or their problem could require a bit more attention. Here are some possible reasons why your baby is having trouble sleeping:
● Scheduling Issues
● Room Temperature
Why Good Sleep is Important for Babies and Parents
Sleep is an extremely important aspect of your overall health and wellness. If your baby isn’t sleeping that means that you as a parent also are not sleeping. In order for you to be able to give your baby the best life you possibly can, you have to also remember to take care of yourself. A parent’s lack of sleep can lead to weight gain, hormonal changes, a weakened immune system, and lack of concentration. Sleep deprivation can potentially put you and your baby in harm’s way when you’re doing simple day-to-day tasks such as cooking or driving. Sleep is also important for your baby’s functionality. You want to establish early sleeping habits with your baby in order to avoid potential problems such as obesity, poor academic performance, and learning difficulties. Be sure to educate yourself on early child development and remember that consistency is key to establishing a strong sleep schedule for your little one.
