Get Your Baby Sleeping!
By:  Tammy Hussin

Bringing a new baby into the world is a beautiful experience, but it can also be filled with a multitude of anxieties. One major source of that anxiety is in trying to figure out how to get your baby sleeping through the night. This article will provide you with some important tips from the baby sleep book, Sleep Baby Sleep, and will get you started on your way to having a better sleeping baby and a well-rested house.

The biggest secret to getting your baby to sleep through the night is to teach your baby how to fall asleep without you. Instead of rocking or nursing your little one to sleep, try to get your baby to fall asleep without your help. The key to achieving this is by putting your baby down to sleep while your baby is still awake. Each time you put your baby down for a nap, it’s a brand new “opportunity” for you to teach your baby how to fall asleep independently. Sometimes your baby might be too fussy to try it, but given enough of these opportunities your baby will eventually be able to fall asleep without you. Once your baby can sleep independently, he will be sleeping through the night in no time and everyone in your house will rest better.

The earlier you begin this process, the quicker and easier your baby will be sleeping through the night. If you start when your baby is a few weeks old, the process is simple and gentle and your baby will barely have to shed a tear. No matter when you try to get your baby sleeping independently, it’s hard word. But keep in mind that the longer you take to get started, the harder it will be. In fact, if you wait too long – you almost assuredly will be forced to resort to some level of a cry-it-out method to get your baby sleeping alone.

If your baby is not sleeping well, that means nobody else in your house is sleeping well. Months of chronic sleep deprivation will wear you down and begin transform your personality. You might even find that you are sleeping apart from your spouse, and everyone in the house will wind up tired and cranky. If you can simply get your baby sleeping independently as soon as possible, your entire family will reap the benefits.

You should try to remember that it’s important to consider your needs, as well as your new baby’s. It’s a challenge to maintain balance in this new life of yours, and difficult to keep everyone happy, including yourself! If you can get your baby sleeping independently, you’ll then have the time to rejuvenate and to take care of you. Saving time for your partner is also important, and ever so easy to forget. When you have quiet opportunities for yourself and your partner, you will be able to maintain the harmony in your life and allow the love to flourish throughout your house.
