Sleep is a must need thing for all infants. Moreover, mothers get some free time, only after their infants are fall asleep. But it is important for mothers to know about all the sleeping techniques, as not all techniques work on every child.
So here are some proved techniques which will help in making a child fall asleep
Mothers can sway an infant, back and forth by laying them in a rocking chair. Mothers can even hold their child and walk slowly while patting his back and singing lullabies. Some infants easily drift away to sleep with these techniques.
Most babies even fall asleep, when their mothers lie next to them, while nursing them. Mothers can even breastfeed or bottle feed their babies. Babies easily fall asleep, when after a warm bath, they come to the warm hands of the mother, drinking from the warm bottle or warm breasts and finally lying on the warm bed.
In order to make their babies fall asleep, mothers can hold their babies with their heads place in front of the neck, beneath your chin, slightly swaying the baby so that it falls asleep. Some babies even fall asleep, by listening to their fathers singing lullabies in their deep male voices.
Mothers can use the technique of “Teddy bear snuggle”, to put their babies to sleep. This method includes the mother lying close to the baby, after swaying and breastfeeding him, until the baby falls into a sound sleep.
If as a mother or father, you want to try something new in order to make your baby fall asleep, you can drive your baby around, in a car. You can return home, after the baby falls asleep, hold her in the car seat, so as to ease her situation, then take her from the car seat to your bedroom.
Babies have a certain significant time of sleeping. Mothers can put their babies in a sling, half an hour before their nap time. This method is the best method for babies who are reluctant sleepers and those babies who find it difficult to fall asleep during the night. Once the baby falls asleep in the sling bag, then she or he can slowly be moved out of the bag and laid on the bed. And then after the baby is asleep, fathers can take the place of the mothers, to give them a break. Parents, specially mothers can even sleep near their babies by putting the baby in a sling, with its tummy lying against your chest, snuggling peacefully.
These days most parents do not have the energy, time or wish to try new techniques to make their child fall asleep. These parents who would do anything to make their baby fall asleep and themselves get some rest, should try the wind up swings technique. This mechanical method is less boring, less stimulating and could become a part of the infant’s sleep routine. Sometimes, more than a mothers warm hands plastic seat can make a baby fall asleep. Although some babies find their mother’s hand or father’s chest cozy, warm and secure.
