Forming A Sleeping Pattern For Your Baby
Your baby can be help to sleep by Pavlov’s dogs. Pavlov’s dogs provided a way for babies to sleep. 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 overtime got used to timetable and associated a bell ring with food. Easy, right? Each time the bell rang the dogs would go to the place they were served with food as they knew it was eating time. However, the issue here isn’t dogs it is the baby’s sleep pattern.
The perception is similar it is only that we know that here it is the baby but thet training condition is similar. Pick your baby’s sleeping cues by following your baby’s routine.
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 noble thought. It may sound easy to read but it is not. For this idea to work it is a must you consider some aspects.
One, you need a constant organized timetable for the baby on a daily basis. This is because a timetable equals consistency and consistency equally ability to predict. If you constantly follow the steps daily for each night the baby should be able to predict and will pick what follows what and know your cue for time to sleep.
Sometime you want to help the baby to settle so she can sleep on her own.
During the times when you decide that you want to put the baby to sleep make sure you do it consistently and gently.
Swaying rhythms helps a baby to go to sleep. 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. The child will know that soon after bathing , there will be a few other activities all centered around sleep and so at the time you will say it is bed time everybody should just go to bed.
To conclude, babies start their lives in the womb, and they more accustomed to it. No baby can come to the world with a lot of stimuli as it is feared there will be an issue of insecurity. A baby should be assisted to shift from womb to the world smoothly as this will ensure they sleep better.
