Signs To Tell Your Baby That Its Time To Sleep
Putting a baby to sleep was made possible by Pavlov’s dogs. Ivan Pavlov and his dog’s experiment are a pair who if you have heard of them then you know what the benefits of conditioning are. The dog’s were taught that when the bell rang it was a cue to eat. The dogs eating time was scheduled for any time the bell rang. This might sound easy. 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 perception is similar it is only that we know that here it is the baby but thet training condition is similar. You should start by following your baby’s patterns and identify the sleeping cues.
This will be good to help your baby in sleeping as you will know the sleep time and the behavior traits done when it’s time to sleep.
This is a good concept I’m sure. It may sound easy to read but it is not. Some elements need to taken into account for this concept to work.
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. These steps if followed daily every night the baby will predict and know what comes after the current activity and detect the cue that is supposed to be for sleeping.
Sometimes it is good to leave the baby to sleep on their own and other times you help put the baby to sleep.
During the times when you decide that you want to put the baby to sleep make sure you do it consistently and gently.
When the baby is being swayed it is assisted to sleep by some rhythms. 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. A cue could involve bathtime. Children pick schedules faster so if you start it by bathing followed by activities geared towards bedtime by the time you tell the child to go to sleep it will be easy.
Since conception when the baby is in the womb they grow accustomed to the womb. It is unlikely to come into the world with a lot of vigor as it can cause an insecurity feeling by the baby. For a baby to sleep properly the transition from the womb to the world should be gentle and smooth.
