Doing Parenting The Right Way
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. Conditioning benefits are from Ivan Pavlov and the experiment he did on his dogs and they are to be appreciated and you can read more in the website. The training that Ivan taught the dogs was that at the chime of the bell then it was a feeding cue. The dogs overtime got used to timetable and associated a bell ring with food. This might sound easy. The feeding cue for the dogs was the bell which they would react to accordingly once it rang. But, in this article the talk is not about dog rather babies.
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.
These will be essential in helping your baby to sleep because you will look out for the time she sleeps and what she does and know that the is preparing to sleep.
This is a good concept I’m sure. It is however not easy as written. There are some components which should be captured for it to work.
First you must have a schedule for the baby everyday. Because when you have a timetable which you follow consistently then it will be easy to predict what is coming next. 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.
There are times when you feel you would like you should help the baby settle and other times you feel like letting her sleep on her own.
If you decide to sway the baby ensure it is gentle and consistent.
The baby should be able to pick a few rhythms to help her go to sleep. The swaying if needed should be gentle for the baby’s relaxation because if it is done fast the baby will think it’s a cue to play.
In case you do not have a schedule it is about time to draft one. Bathing time is one such cue. If you design your schedule in a way that after bathtime there is some activity centered on sleeping it should not be a problem if you tell them to go to bed.
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. A baby should be assisted to shift from womb to the world smoothly as this will ensure they sleep better.
