4 months old baby

Question: Hi, my 4 months old baby boy, struggles to go to sleep. And the sleep lasts for just half hr or less in the day time. I spend atleast 20 mins to get him to sleep even when he is sleepy. At night he wakes up every 2 hrs. He sleeps well in lap, but the moment I put him in bed he cries and wakes up. Any ideas?

Answer: Following tips might be of help – • Dim lights & have relaxing & calming effect on baby • Instead of complete silence, you can try soft sounds or very soft music which will make the baby fall asleep quickly • Maintain right room temperature • Keep the surrounding clean & less of any distraction • Make your child wear comfortable clothes at night • Give your baby massage morning and once at night. • check if baby if not having cold or congestion issue, as it can disturb sleep • Feed your baby nicely for little longer so that once babys tummy is full, he feel sleepy
Answer:  Be patient dear. Till 12 months you will see frequent changes in your baby's sleeping patterns. they wake up  multiple times. cry again and then again sleep. It will last at least till 12 months. It will be fine. Don't worry. feed your baby milk 50-90ml every 2-3 hours and make sure the baby is not hungry.
