These proven tips will help you put your baby to sleep quickly. One of the biggest challenges in the first few months after birth is getting the baby to sleep. Most days they wake up minutes after falling asleep. He gets cranky when he wakes up, and getting him back to sleep is big business. This can go on for a long time. That’s why we’re sharing all the tips and tricks to help you put your picky baby to sleep.
1. Use a pacifier
This is a foolproof trick to get your baby to sleep quickly. After feeding the baby, offer a pacifier. The pacifier helps to calm the baby and put him to sleep. According to a study, pacifiers help soothe the baby at night and also reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Remove the pacifier while the baby is in a deep sleep. Do not put the pacifier back in your mouth (when using a baby pacifier) if it falls off by itself.
2. Play lullaby
Music can have a positive effect on your baby’s brain. Choose a soft and soothing lullaby. It will help create a soothing atmosphere for your baby and sleep well. You can find a few of them on YouTube. Choose the right one for your baby. If you can sing a soothing lullaby to your baby, there’s nothing quite like it!
3. Shake the baby
For the first one to three months, most babies cannot sleep on their own. Rocking can help them fall asleep. You can use the car seat, which can also be used as a swing seat, to put my baby to sleep at night. Laying the baby on his side and cradling him in your arms will also help him fall asleep quickly.
4. Turn off the lights
Feed the baby in a dark and quiet room to sleep. Use subdued lighting if necessary. According to a study, dim light or no light helps baby sleep longer.
5. Give them a leg massage
Babies are tired of playing all day, so they may not be able to sleep. A short leg massage relaxes them and helps them fall asleep quickly. You can take some oil and warm it in your palms and do a leg massage.
Babies should sleep 10-12 hours or more each day. If your baby is resisting sleep, contact a specialist. Let them know your concerns as there may be an underlying health issue behind them.
