We’re delighted to present another guest post from our favorite sleepytime expert, Nicole from BabySleepSite. Today she shares how to help your 4- to 6-month old baby find a sleep schedule.
You know that point you reach during parenthood where you just think to yourself, “This is it — I can’t take it anymore!” I think we all have at least a few of those during the course of raising children. But I’ve learned in my years of sleep consulting that many parents reach that point when their babies are around four-months old.
Why? Because by the time your baby is four-months old, the newborn phase is done. Your adrenaline is gone. And the sleep deprivation is starting to catch up with you.
No wonder, then, that this is the time when many parents start anxiously trying to piece together a daytime schedule for their babies. They are desperate for some measure of order in the day!
If this sounds like you, then keep reading – I’m sharing tips on how you can get your 4- to 6- month old baby eating and sleeping more predictably during the day (which in turn can buy YOU some much-needed down time!) After all, you deserve some time to plan your baby’s classes or spend time with your spouse.
