How to get a 3 month old to sleep through the night

Putting a three month old baby to sleep is not an easy task especially if it is your first newborn. The good news is that there is something you can do in order to get a good night’s sleep. If you do not know this than we are here to tell you that newborns sleep up to 16 hours per day, this period is usually broken in up to three naps during 24 hours. As your baby grown and reaches three months he is ready to sleep longer than before especially during the night. The perfect period to make your baby a schedule which will eventually become a routine for the baby.

If you always have trouble putting your baby to sleep, you need to consult a doctor and see whether there are some issues which are preventing this. Moreover, in some cases, babies who had suffered from sleep apnea and went through surgery to treat this, came out with brain damage and his parents had to file for medical negligence compensation. Similarly, there may be something wrong with your baby that your doctor failed to notice either during the pregnancy, or after the birth. Getting medical negligence compensation may offer some satisfaction, but nothing can balance the fact that your child has health problems which could affect him for the rest of his life. On, you can find all the information you need for learning how to deal with such situations. That being said, if this problem persists and you cannot find a method to put the baby to sleep normally, visit your personal doctor and ask for a series of tests.

If you want your baby to sleep more during the night than the key is to keep him busy during the day as much as possible. What you can do is play with him, sing songs and even reading to him because these will make him consume all his energy. By doing this you are not only making your baby sleep longer during the night but you are also helping him make the difference between day and night. As he gets older he will learn to associate the day with playing and the night with sleeping. One important thing you have to keep in mind is not overtiring him because this will not help him; if he gets tired let him have a quick nap.

If you want your baby to stop waking you every five minutes because he cannot get to sleep on his own than you have to apply a tested method: put him in the crib and leave him there, if he starts to cry do not go to him right away, wait five minutes and gradually increase this period. As you increase the period your baby will learn to fall asleep on his own and you will able to sleep for longer periods of time than you did before.

Before you put him to bed set up a little routine such as: bathing him, getting him dressed and reading or singing him something. After a while he will know that when you do this it is time for him to go to bed.

When your baby gets up because it is time to eat try to make the experience as simple as possible because any attempt of talking or playing with him will make it harder to put him back to sleep.
