How Can I Get My Baby To Sleep Later In The Morning
Modify bedtime: Many parents buy into the myth that a newborn or young infant needs to be put down by 8 pm & pay the price when baby is ready to start the day at 4 am. That's fine for a 3 yo but unrealistic for an infant. By keeping baby up later & putting them down when you are ready for bed, you can push their morning waking until later. Doing this gradually, by 15 min/day segments can smooth the transition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Avoid night activity: Babies more than 3 months old can usually be trained to sleep through the night. The younger babies might go 6 hours before feeding, but the older babies should be fine until breakfast time the next morning. Do the same relaxing bedtime routine each evening. Put the baby in the crib, say "goodnight", and walk away. He might wake up off and on and cry but will soon learn to fall asleep by himself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Infant swaddling is a transitional measure that replicates the snug feeling of the womb & calms baby when they can't handle the random movement of arms & legs. That said, they didn't need to breath in the womb and without room for arms & legs to move they don't develop muscle tone.To tight is a problem for both. The goal is to gradually loosen the wrap & have it gone at a month. ...Read more
