My 6wk baby is very clingy. During the day I use a sling but at night i want to sleep. Suggestion?
New plan needed: Using a sling all day essentially returns baby to the movements and closeness of the womb.Separation at night is a dramatic change. The reaction is expected. Begin gradually placing baby in the crib for longer periods between feedings so baby accepts it as a safe place. The sling is fine for temporary transport but i would retire it as an all day placement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it bad for my health if i don't sleep at night and instead i sleep during the day because i work after 9pm?
No: Plenty of people have your work schedule, especially doctors & nurses who work in shifts, like in the hospital. They get home and darken their sleeping quarters and soundproof them as best they can and get a full "night's" worth of sleep during the day. Just make sure that you get in a healthy diet and some daily exercise and you should be fine. ...Read more
My baby is we days old, sleeps during day and wakes during night . how to make him sleep at night and awake during day?
You can't, but you : can promote sleep consolidation at night between 1-4 months. Put him on his back in his crib with no loose bedding or items when he is drowsy, but awake to learn to self-calm to sleep. Babies cry out during light sleep; it's easier to wait till he's fully awake before feeding if you put him in his own room. See tips on healthy children.org. Play during daylight; minimize interaction at night. ...Read more

My son is 6 weeks and 9lbs14oz. Is it ok to wake him up every 3 hour during the day so hopefully he will sleep at night or feed him his bottle on demand?
Drowsy but awake: I often find that babies who won't sleep are overstimulated. Don't insist on putting him to sleep, allow him to put himself to sleep. Feed, change, swaddle, cuddle- then lay him down while he's awake, and leave the room for 10 minutes. If awake at 10", soothe baby with soft talk, gentle touch, no more than 2-5", then leave again. Repeat. Holding, jiggling, etc can interfere with sleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
