Question: I was using diaper in the night for her comfort sleep till two months. But now my mother in law says diaper is harmful for baby so try to make her sleep without it and bring it in her habit. I obey her and do this. But without diaper none of us can sleep. Because she breaks her sleep when she discharge and it becomes too difficult to make her sleep again. How can I get rid off this problem
Answer: Hii dear. She is too young for potty training. U must give her diaper at night so that she can have sound sleep . Wet bed can affect baby and can make her suffer with cough and cold. So define ur mom in law about it. U can use diaper rash cream so that no rash will come. And use good quality of diaper which are meant for long hour sleep.
All the best.

Answer: Babies have their own sleeping pattern but these tips can help you. Try them.
Feed your baby. Don’t give her/ him so much that she or he is overly full and uncomfortable, but give her/ him enough so that she/ he is satisfied and not hungry before bed.
Give her/ him a gentle massage. Before bed, try a short massage. For 10 to 15 minutes, use slow, long strokes and moderate pressure to massage her/ his arms, legs, hands, feet, back, and tummy.
Put on a fresh diaper and pajamas. Use a good, thick, nighttime diaper to prevent leaks and unnecessary mid-night changes. Choose soft pajamas made from a breathable fabric.
Walking around with her/him in your arms.
Rocking her/him gently in a chair or in your arms
Singing her/ him a song
Playing her/him quiet music.
Put her/ him to bed when she/ he is sleepy but still awake. Look for signs of tiredness, such as yawning, heavy eyes, making fists, and eye rubbing.
Avoid eye contact at this stage, as it might stimulate her/him and wake him/her up again.
Lay her/ him down on her/ his back. Babies should always sleep on their backs, as babies who sleep on their tummies are at an increased risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).
Soothe your baby with physical contact as you transfer her/ him to bed. Gently lay your hand on her/ him stomach, arms, or head to reassure her/him that you are there and make her/ him feel safe and secure.
Turn off the lights or create artificial light.
Consider dimming the lights during your pre-bed routine to reduce your baby’s exposure to light before it’s time to sleep.
