What can I do to let my one year baby sleep early?

What can I do to let my one year baby sleep early?

Sleep deprivation: Most babies sleep a consistent number of hours per day. It's a matter of when they sleep. If you'd like your baby to fall asleep earlier in the evening, keep him/her awake for a longer time during the day, perhaps skipping an afternoon nap. This should tire out the baby so he/she falls asleep more easily that night. Once you've 'reset' his/her internal clock this way, it usually stays on schedule. ...Read more

That's called an: "extinction burst". When you consistently ignore night-crying , it first increases in duration & intensity. Continue to ignore it & it will soon "extinguish". Go in & pick her up after 1 1/2 hrs. & you teach her to cry for that long. At a consistent bedtime,feed, brush her teeth, read, cuddle, then put her in her own bed in her own room drowsy, but awake, to learn to self-calm to sleep. ...Read more

Sleep problems: Not wanting to go to sleep can be normal in a toddler who doesn't want to miss anything, but the waking up is not. Is your toddler having night terrors? Snoring? Is there activity in the house with lights on and noise that could account for the awakenings? Please see the child's pediatrician to discuss the problem. Some children suffer from sleep apnea, important to rule out. ...Read more
