How To Train Your Baby How To Sleep
Putting a baby to sleep was made possible by Pavlov’s dogs. Ivan Pavlov and his dog’s experiment are a pair who if you have heard of them then you know what the benefits of conditioning are. The dog’s were taught that when the bell rang it was a cue to eat. The dogs overtime got used to timetable and associated a bell ring with food. Easy, right? The feeding cue for the dogs was the bell which they would react to accordingly once it rang. However, the issue here isn’t dogs it is the baby’s sleep pattern.
The perception is similar it is only that we know that here it is the baby but thet training condition is similar. Keenly follow the baby’s routine and look out for sleeping cues.
This will be good to help your baby in sleeping as you will know the sleep time and the behavior traits done when it’s time to sleep.
This is a good concept I’m sure. It is not easy to implement as it is easy to write. There are some components which should be captured for it to work.
First you must have a schedule for the baby everyday. Because when you have a timetable which you follow consistently then it will be easy to predict what is coming next. If you constantly follow the steps daily for each night the baby should be able to predict and will pick what follows what and know your cue for time to sleep.
Sometime you want to help the baby to settle so she can sleep on her own.
There are times when you have to sway the baby and this should be consistent and gentle.
The baby should be able to pick a few rhythms to help her go to sleep. Make sure that you sway the baby gently because if you do it fast the baby will not think it is sleep time instead it will think it is time for play.
The next schedule that should be implement is the parents. Bathing time is one such cue. The child will know that soon after bathing , there will be a few other activities all centered around sleep and so at the time you will say it is bed time everybody should just go to bed.
To conclude, babies start their lives in the womb, and they more accustomed to it. It is unlikely to come into the world with a lot of vigor as it can cause an insecurity feeling by the baby. If you want to assist the baby to sleep soundly, you need to make the shift from the womb to the world comfortable.
