How To Educate Your Baby’s Sleep

More than educating your child’s sleep, it is teaching him to sleep and be calm at night. When he is six months old, he may start waking up every hour and a half, because his internal sleep cycle is changing. Or you can also have a growth crisis … the reasons can be many, but what matters is that you know how to handle the situation for everyone’s good rest.

You will be able to fall asleep on your own without much help if you know how to do it. Remember that letting him sleep alone and without help does not mean that you should let him cry to make him feel anxious, far from it. You also don’t have to leave the room and leave him alone all the time.

Maybe your baby just needs a little of your warmth, a lullaby , physical contact … to be able to feel calm and rest. And if so, are you going to deny it? How would you feel if you need a comforting hug and the person you care about most in the world rejects it? For this reason, if your child needs you, you must be by his side.

Keys to educate your child’s dream

By this we mean that you can educate your baby’s dream from love and respect, taking into account their needs and yours. To do this, follow the following steps and you will see how everything improves in a short time and your rest also begins to be more adequate. Do not lose detail.

  • When your baby is 4 months old, it is necessary for him to feel secure at bedtime, and you must provide that by satisfying his needs from affection and love whenever he demands you.
  • Control the temperature of the room where your baby sleeps, if it has a comfortable temperature, he will fall asleep earlier.
  • Put him in nightwear that is comfortable. It should not be too warm or too little.
  • Try not to allow your baby to fall asleep while taking his milk (both breast and bibi) to avoid associating feeding with falling asleep. If this happens, the only way to sleep will be by eating and it is not a good option. It is best to wait about 20 minutes after the last feeding of the night to put him to sleep. If he wakes up at night and you have to feed him, don’t wait this long, just try to keep him from falling asleep while he’s drinking his milk.
  • You don’t want your baby to learn to sleep in a certain amount of time … Your baby knows how to sleep, but only does it when he needs it and taking into account everything you teach him with your love. Do not compare her to other babies who may sleep earlier and better… each baby is different and has its own rhythm.

In addition to all this, it is important that you keep in mind that to educate your children’s sleep you must take into account their routines. Routines are key and necessary for your baby to associate the night with sleeping longer. Think of the best bedtime routine that fits your family style and your little one’s personality.…

Division Of Responsibilities For Parents

Ideally, children choose the amount of food they want to eat and parent the quality of food. In this sense, parents should be responsible for:

  • Choose the quality of the food that you are going to give your children: proteins, vegetables, fruits, healthy oils and dairy.
  • Establish eating routines such as breakfast, lunch and dinner times.
  • Have established a place for breakfast, lunch and dinner that is always the same, such as the kitchen or dining room table.

On the other hand, children will have the responsibility to:

  • Decide whether or not to taste the food.
  • Decide whether or not to eat the food.
  • Decide how much food they eat at each meal.

Children decide

Children are connected with their sensations and know perfectly well when they want to continue eating more and when it is time to stop. By being connected to their body and listening to it, they are able to make these decisions. Something that, for example, adults are not so capable of achieving. On many occasions, adults eat without hunger, out of gluttony, boredom or sadness.

This does not happen to children, they know how to control the right amount of food they should take. 

Respect your children

In this sense, it is necessary that you respect the decisions of your children regarding their diet. It encourages the connection with their body, since in many cases we adults have lost it and we have grown up with phrases such as: “If you don’t finish everything, you don’t get up from the table” or “If you don’t finish everything: no You go out / you don’t have dessert / you will be punished ”, etc. Some phrases that undoubtedly disrespected us and forced us to have a bad relationship with food.

It is your responsibility to be aware that your children must learn to have a good relationship with food and that eating is not a continuous conflict. Avoid stress at all costs when it comes to eating so that everyone can live together and enjoy each other and the food you eat.

Your children need to eat less than you, just look at how much they eat to get an idea of ​​how much they need. For example, maybe a 2-year-old with two tablespoons of rice, two tablespoons of meat, and two tablespoons of yogurt will be satiated. The amount of food you need is less than you think and that does not mean that you are not eating well, you are eating what your body needs.

Keep in mind that there will be days that they eat more and days that your children eat less. This is normal. Remember that she has a certain connection with her body and that it must be respected. Only if you think he is having nutritional problems due to a poor diet, then take him to the pediatrician so he can guide you on a good diet.…
