    Great Ways To Deal With Night Wakings For Babies

    If you respond inconsistently to every nighttime waking, there will unfortunately be more nighttime wakings.

    This is why a sleep training method is so helpful because it gives you a more systematic way to respond while STILL responding to your child.

    To help babies deal with nightime wakings, it is always helpful to pause, observe, and then run through a checklist of things like:

    • Is this a normal feeding time? They are probably hungry!

    • It is not a normal feeding time– maybe sending in a non-breastfeeding partner would be helpful.

    • How were they acting today? Under the weather, congested, grumpy? They may need medicine, snuggles, etc

    • Was their schedule off? Were they really busy/overstimulated? They could just need some time to settle and go back to sleep or a quick check in for reassurance.

    • And as always, it could be a dirty diaper making them uncomfortable so a quick check for poop or leaking out can be helpful.

    • Is it warm in their room? Colder than when they went to bed? Temperature can disrupt sleep because our body temperature changes with sleep!
