Real Moms Share Sleep Training Tricks

Let’s be honest, putting your little one to bed is not always easy!

 

We all know that when it comes to sleep training your little one, it can be a struggle. But what if we told you that we have the answer. Ok, maybe we don’t have the answer, but we do have some tips that are going to make parenting (and bedtime) a whole lot easier!

 

So why do babies have such a tough time going to sleep and staying asleep? Well, that’s because babies' sleeping patterns resemble that of a cat: they sleep for short periods at a time, then wake up and eat or just look around. To babies, sleeping for eight hours straight is not easy. Their natural sleep schedule can often be problematic for tired parents who want them to get more sleep! Getting babies to sleep well is part science and part art. One major piece of the puzzle is providing babies with a secure and familiar environment in terms of their sleep habits. 

 

When babies cry out in the middle of the night, it may be because they need something. The most common reasons why babies wake up during the night are hunger, discomfort due to wet diapers or being too hot or cold. If you have fed and changed your little one, and they still won't go back to sleep, a baby sleep bag might be the miracle answer you are looking for! Sleep bags can provide that same comfort of being held and keep your little ones from kicking off the covers and getting cold. Sleep bags also provide your little ones with a sense of security and familiarity and serve as a cue for bedtime.

Sleep bags help your little ones to sleep safely and soundly through the night, and in turn, parents get more restful hours of sleep they desperately need as well!
