How can I get my baby to sleep at night instead of during the day?

Babies often 'have their days and nights mixed up." Remember: make them adjust to your schedule, don't adjust to theirs. Help your baby adjust to a regular day/night rhythm by keeping days bright, noisy, and active and keeping nights dark and quiet. If you're up at night, don't turn on the lights and TV.

How will co-sleeping influence my baby's ability to sleep through the night?

More difficult

Baby
Co-sleeping babies do tend to wake more, perhaps because mom and baby are quicker to hear and react to each other, but also because it's quick and easy for mom to nurse. If independent sleep is a top priority for you, co-sleeping may not be the way to go.

Have insomia i get little sleep then if i fall asleep during the day or at night i'll sleep for 10-15 hrs and struggle to get up typical insomia?

Not normal

Convulsion
You are alternating between sleep deprivation and hyper somnolence . You have a seizure disorder. I recommend you see a neurologist who specializes also in sleep medicine to sort out these issues.

Is sleeping in contacts dangerous? Or do they just irritate & dry out? I sleep with them to be alert In the middle of the night to care for my infant

Don't do that

Sleep
They can cause corneal irritation/ ulcers due to trauma at night. I hope you have a pair of glasses to put on.

I'm 36 wks pregnant and having sleeping problem--I can't get good sleep at night some time i take pills clobazam 10mg will it be any prob for my baby?

What did your OB SAY

you should be asking this to the OB taking care of you , and go by your Ob's rec, i would not advise that if you were my pt, I would advise my pt to take benadryl 25-50mg if necessary for sleep and if the problem gets worse i would offer to induce my pt between 39-40 weeks which is the safest time for the baby to deliver, i do not let any of my pts go past their due date

I have a baby 7 month 7 days,i dont know why he always cry at night during sleeping?

Probably separation

Baby
As most infants reach 6-9 mo they become aware of how important their primary caregivers are to their happiness & well being. At that point their brain doesn't usually let them understand that people they don't see are still around. If baby is awake as you check them at night and settles immediately when they see you this is likely. Some babies just fuss as they drift thru sleep stages to settle.

When should I seek medical care for my baby's sleeping difficulties?

Right away:

Sleep
"Medical care" does include reassurance if the "difficulty" is something completely normal like night terrors or awakenings, or counseling on the best way to deal with it. In fact, for sleep disturbances, medication is the least likely solution pediatricians would advise.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

Will sleeping on a soft mattress affect my baby's growth? Eg. The bones formation.

Not likely...

Baby
babies in general move quite a bit during sleep..soft/firm/pillow top beds probably won't make much of a difference since a new baby is only a few pound anyway. Just make sure baby sleeps on his/her back and that no blanket/bedding near face which may suffocate baby. follow up with family doc/pediatrician regularly and ask lots of questions. Baby is precious. Congrats and good luck.

Wat are the things that instantly change your baby's sleeping behavior on the nite itself?

Sleeping Issues

Sleeping-baby-420x0
Baby's sleeping behavior is of concern to many parents. If you are asking how to help your baby sleep I would need to know many more details of the situation. How old is the baby? Where does the baby sleep? Babies do not sleep through the night until 4 to 6 months normally. The issue of where the baby sleeps is controversial but being close to the mother at night important.
