What is it, when does it occur and how can you help ease it?
Here in this blog I will discuss this hard transition we all go through as parents and ways to help your child through it. Whilst it is a lovely to know that your child wants you, they are showing attachment and love to you, it can also be exhausting. You may never be able to leave the room to go to the bathroom let along go out for the afternoon on your own for some well-earned Mummy/Daddy time without hearing cries and screams and the sound of those little feet chasing after you down the hall.
So you are here, reading this blog through foggy eye lids held up with match sticks to stay open. You were up every hour last night…and you need to find a solution to this problem. It is just not sustainable any longer for any of your family. And you are right. It is not sustainable for all of the family and your baby needs to sleep long stretches of time through the night for their own health, development and growth. Don’t fear, these waking’s in the night can be a thing of the past and your sleep can be restored.
How many times have you heard someone telling you their baby slept so well and now they are waking every 2 hours in the night? I for one can tell you I have heard it many times, it comes with my job! Now this can be very normal especially around the 4 month mark due to the maturation of your baby’s brain in what we know as the four month sleep regression but what about the following months? You just want to have a good nights sleep right...!
