I recommend seeing a doctor to get checked out. ...Read more

My son feeds all night. How can I prevent myself from sleeping on him while breast feeding? I can't help it!

My son feeds all night. How can I prevent myself from sleeping on him while breast feeding?  I can't help it!

He doesn't need to: Dr. F is right. Not only will putting your baby in his own crib, on his back, drowsy but awake, reduce his chance of sids by 50%, it will allow him to learn self-regulation for consolidated sleep. Breast milk sugar bathing his teeth all night can cause cavities as teeth erupt, so wipe out his mouth before bed. At 6 months learned behaviors develop. Do you want him to be a trained night feeder? ...Read more

Dear sir.
Currently I might working in a night shift job and in day means after my shift I can't sleep what to do its affects my body I think pls tell?

Shift work disorder: You're probably describing shift work disorder in which your sleep & work cycle don't coincide w/day & night which then screws up your circadian rhythm. Check out http://goo.gl/joad0q, http://goo.gl/UxRSUA & http://goo.gl/jOVnL4. Do some research on sleep hygiene to improve chances of sleeping during daytime. Failing that, see Family Doc or sleep specialist for medicines that might help. Good luck ...Read more

Really difficult to sleep in the night. Feeling kind of anxious but don't know why and this prevents from falling asleep. And happens only at night?

Initial Insomnia.: When some people lie down to sleep and there are no distractions, they begin to ruminate. The more they ruminate, the more anxious they feel & the more they stimulate their brain. The brain needs to slow down for you to sleep. Buspar sometimes helps someone to be calm at that time just before sleep. Consider deep breathing exercises, meditation or progressive muscle relaxation. ...Read more
