Forming A Sleeping Pattern For Your Baby

Putting a baby to sleep was made possible by Pavlov’s dogs. Ivan Pavlov and his dog’s experiment are a pair who if you have heard of them then you know what the benefits of conditioning are. The training that Ivan taught the dogs was that at the chime of the bell then it was a feeding cue. The dogs eating time was scheduled for any time the bell rang. Easy, right? The feeding cue for the dogs was the bell which they would react to accordingly once it rang. However, the issue here isn’t dogs it is the baby’s sleep pattern.

The training aspect of both the dogs and the baby are similarly the only difference is that we know the baby is not a dog. Keenly follow the baby’s routine and look out for sleeping cues.

This will be good to help your baby in sleeping as you will know the sleep time and the behavior traits done when it’s time to sleep.

This is a good concept I’m sure. It is however not easy as written. There are some components which should be captured for it to work.

One, you need a constant organized timetable for the baby on a daily basis. Because when you have a timetable which you follow consistently then it will be easy to predict what is coming next. If you constantly follow the steps daily for each night the baby should be able to predict and will pick what follows what and know your cue for time to sleep.

Sometime you want to help the baby to settle so she can sleep on her own.

During the times when you decide that you want to put the baby to sleep make sure you do it consistently and gently.

When the baby is being swayed it is assisted to sleep by some rhythms. The swaying if needed should be gentle for the baby’s relaxation because if it is done fast the baby will think it’s a cue to play.

The next schedule that should be implement is the parents. Bathing time is one such cue. Children pick schedules faster so if you start it by bathing followed by activities geared towards bedtime by the time you tell the child to go to sleep it will be easy.

We all know that babies are more comfortable in the womb as this is where their lives begin. It is unlikely to come into the world with a lot of vigor as it can cause an insecurity feeling by the baby. For a baby to sleep properly the transition from the womb to the world should be gentle and smooth.
