My LO is 4 months old and often fuss around before she naps. I am thinking of nap training her as she is already sleep-trained for 2 months and can sleep through the night for at least 10 to 12 hours. She will be entering ifc once CB had ended. I will like to nap train her personally before sending her in. Any methods to nap train?
I used the same night sleep training techniques for the naps, and they worked. Perhaps you can do that? Create the same environment/mood/bedtime ritual.
Okay, will try to do so. Thank you 💕
- Is it normal for baby 3.5 mo to have 2-3 hours nap in one go ? She will have short naps around 45 mins around 2 times before going for long nap that can be up to 2-3 hours.... She normally sleep around 9-10pm at night even after long nap. TIA
Yes, it is. Her sleep will gradually mature where she begins to go through the different sleep stages that form the sleep cycle (approximately 120mins per cycle). This will take place when she is around 4 months old. During this period, you can consider starting sleep training and to establish bedtime routine to help baby sleep better.Anonymous
- Hi mummies, I'm currently struggling with my 7mo lo morning nap. She will never nap longer than 15 mins. I have tried to sleep beside her, yet she still not able to nap longer. She can nap for 2 hours during her noon nap and 30 mins cat nap during evening nap. She will wake up 2- 3 times during midnight. Is her routine healthy enough as I know at her age should have stretch nap for an hour at least for morning nap. thanks!
Your baby will eventually build up a sleeping schedule if he already hasn't. All babies are different and they take their own time into reaching their milestones. Give him a nice massage before giving him bath in the morning and after that feed him well, and see if massage does its trick and helps him sleeping longer. Else, do not worry, as long as baby is active and eating well, he is fine.Shirley Lee
- We started potty train my 2yo due to her diaper rash. Took her just 3 days to be fully trained (refuse to pee in diaper now). Problem is.. I only wanted her to potty train in the noon and still pee in diaper when she nap / sleep at night. However, once she is trained, she refuse to pee in diaper even at night and I’m really worried it will be bad for her bladder? Will it or am I worrying too much?
What you can try to do is to bring her to the toilet just before bedtime, and also bring her for 1 “dream potty” session in the middle of the night to empty the bladder, and then to the toilet immediately on waking up. You can observe how much she pees in the middle of the night to see how much she’s holding in. Also bring forward her prebedtime milk feed or reduce the amount of milk so she doesn’t have so much in the bladder overnight.Anonymous
