Aargh those Pesky Sleep Problems!

It's 2am and your baby is up for the third time since 7pm. She's 2 months old and from all the books and magazines you've read SHE'S SUPPOSED TO BE SLEEPING THROUGHT HE NIGHT!!!!! How long can this go on?!!! As difficult as this is it doesn't last forever.

The first few weeks of a baby's life are key in setting a healthy sleep pattern that can last a lifetime.

At first your infant doesn't know much about the differences between day and night. From what she is used to when the home turns quiet is the time to wake up and when there is movement and activity around her is the time to sleep. Slowly she will adjust during her first few weeks and as she does it's important to set up nice bedtime and wake up time routines so she will understand her roll in it all. Here are some things to keep in mind...

1. Does your baby have a bedtime routine? Setting up a bedtime routine is key. Bath, book, etc. This can be added on to as the child grows.

2. Is your baby going to bed at an age appropriate time? This is part of the routine. Yeah we know they're just going to wake up for a bottle in 30 minutes but putting them in the place for sleep early on sends the message that "this is bedtime".

3. When your baby wakes up each time during the night do you respond immediately with a bottle and cuddling or do you first try the pat and assure method to see if it's just normal night time waking?

4. Does you child take enough naps during the day

5. Sometimes a little "white noise" can help. I myself sleep with a fan and use hymn CD for my babies.

6. Make sure you keep baby's crib and bassinet free from toys. This is the place for sleep not play.

7. I'm sure you've heard to try and keep the night feedings boring. Change, feed, bed. No talky no playie. I've actually done this

with great success.

8. Upon waking make sure you greet your baby with a smile and a good morning. They love that!

Whatever you try remember that there is light at the end of the tunnel and you are not alone.
