One of the most common things parents go through is baby sleep regression. This is when your baby starts to sleep longer and longer periods of time during the day, which can be really stressful for you. Here are some tips that may help you stop your baby from sleeping too long:
1. Make sure you're getting enough sleep yourself: If your baby is not getting enough sleep, your baby is likely going to start sleeping more or which can be called baby sleep regressions. Try to get at least seven hours of sleep each night, and make sure you're getting quality sleep by avoiding stimulants such as caffeine and sugar in the evening.
2. Keep a consistent bedtime routine: Babies learn best by following a routine, and trying to keep a bedtime schedule will help your baby fall asleep faster. Try to avoid stressing out about bedtime, and let your baby fall asleep naturally without any intervention.
3. Avoid screen time before bedtime: One of the main reasons babies start sleeping longer is because they are tired after spending the day watching screens such as TVs or computers. Try to avoid screens before bedtime to help reduce the amount of time your baby spends watching screens in general.
You can also try to get your baby used to sleeping in a crib early on. This will help him or her develop good sleep habits early on, which will be easier to follow later on.
If you are struggling with your baby’s sleep regression, don’t hesitate to seek professional help. There may be something underlying the problem that needs to be addressed.
