Signs To Tell Your Baby That Its Time To Sleep
Your baby can be help to sleep by Pavlov’s dogs. Pavlov’s dogs provided a way for babies to sleep. Conditioning benefits are from Ivan Pavlov and the experiment he did on his dogs and they are to be appreciated and you can read more in the website. The dog’s were taught that when the bell rang it was a cue to eat. With time the dogs adjusted to the fact that the every time the bell rang it was eating time. Easy, right? The dogs knew that it was time to feed each the bell rang and as such they would go over the place where they were served the food. We will discuss a baby’s sleep training and not dogs cue to feed.
The concept could be the same though here we know that the baby is not a dog but perhaps you should condition him similarly. Keenly follow the baby’s routine and look out for sleeping cues.
These will be essential in helping your baby to sleep because you will look out for the time she sleeps and what she does and know that the is preparing to sleep.
This is a noble thought. It may sound easy to read but it is not. For this idea to work it is a must you consider some aspects.
You should get a program for the baby to be followed daily. This is because a timetable equals consistency and consistency equally ability to predict. If you constantly follow the steps daily for each night the baby should be able to predict and will pick what follows what and know your cue for time to sleep.
Sometimes it is good to leave the baby to sleep on their own and other times you help put the baby to sleep.
There are times when you have to sway the baby and this should be consistent and gentle.
The baby should be able to pick a few rhythms to help her go to sleep. Make sure that you sway the baby gently because if you do it fast the baby will not think it is sleep time instead it will think it is time for play.
The next schedule that should be implement is the parents. One good cue is time for taking a bath. If you design your schedule in a way that after bathtime there is some activity centered on sleeping it should not be a problem if you tell them to go to bed.
Since conception when the baby is in the womb they grow accustomed to the womb. A baby will feel quite insecure if they came into the world with a lot of vitality. For a baby to sleep properly the transition from the womb to the world should be gentle and smooth.
