Your baby is 6 months or older and you’re wondering when he’ll finally get a full night’s sleep (and so will you!)?
When evening comes, it’s time to put your baby to bed. You’ve bathed him, diaper-changed him, fed him, kissed and cuddled him. In short, you’ve thought of everything. You lay him down into his crib and less than 1h30 later, he’s already awake and ready to go !
There are many reasons that prevent a baby from sleeping but here are the 6 most common causes that can hinder a baby’s sleep after the first 6 months.
1) Going to bed too DROWSY or ASLEEP;
2) TOO LATE of a BEDTIME;
3) NAP DEPRIVATION during the day;
4) TOO BIG of a WAKEFUL WINDOW from afternoon nap to bedtime;
5) INCONSISTENCY in your response during the night;
6) UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS (such as asthma, allergies, reflux or undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea).
