TIPS TO SETTLE ONE OF YOUR TWINS (BOY/GIRL) -11 MONTHS

Liliana Amaro

1.     Revise her bed time routine, 7:30-8:00 could be a bit too late for her sleep cycle to be already pass, try moving it a bit earlier by 15-30 minutes earlier, and try this for a week.

 

2.     The strategy of sitting next to her is good, however you should try to avoid the contact o keep it to a minimum.

 

3.     Your Bed-time routine should be short max 30 minutes.

 

4.     Wait a few minutes (10mins ideal) before attending, sometimes we are so scared of letting them make some noise with the fear of waking up the siblings but by giving time we give them the chance to resettle again. If there is not chance there is not attempt.

And yes it is possible that in the beginning the brother will wake up but in not more than 3 nights both will be used to, one to keep sleeping through the noise and the other one to resettle.

If you don’t feel like testing your luck, then move the good sleeper baby to your bedroom in a portable cot for a short period of time and start the strategy! 3+ nights of hard work on the same method will be great to see changes.

 

5.     Do not bring her to your bed, children love the company of an adult and will develop the habit of crying every night to get moved into the parent’s bed. Do it one more night and once you are ready talk to her about that won’t be more visits to the bed and explain that she will need to resettle in her own cot.

 

6.     Once you’re are 100% convinced that is the time to start. Begin to apply the tips 1-5 and do not mover into your bed again. Hard Work? Yes but no more than what you do now and the good thing is that this will have positive results and more happy long nights. Give it a go for a least 1 full week (5-7days) and then decide if works or not.

3 HOT TIPS TO SWAP THE COT FOR A BED!

Liliana Amaro

The Following three tips are perfect to know if now is the right time to swap your baby’s cot for a little bed, you will find how and when is this change ideal, every week mother around the world ask me this question.

1. If you baby is younger than 3 years of age, it is recommendable to keep it in a cot, and you may wonder why, this is because him/her has not 100% perception of the space and place while sleeping. You can evaluate this by observing your child whether he/her still rolling all over or waking up in the opposite direction. I can warranty you that by the age of try a kid is more likely to enjoy a single bed.

2. If your child is sleeping all night without waking then is a good time to make this transition. If your kid is still waking through the night and you think this change will be the fix, you may be lucky and it is possible that happens but by my experience as sleep consultant the cases of this being a fix to sleeping problems are rare.

3. Take ownership of the new bed! Before you make the change of the cot to a bed, make sure your child fully recognizes and knows the new sleeping place like “hi/her bed”. Speak about the change and make it memorable for them.

24 Hours time line to create a Sleep Routine

Liliana Amaro

In this basic time line you can learn the best and recommended times for your child to have a nap, eat and go to bed . This time line will be changing as your child grows and the naps suddenly will be reduce until they end n just one NAP at mid day (around 12-15 months).

Also bare in mind that the newborns have feeding times during the night, but essentially by 6 months you want to achieve a routine similar to this time line.

Direct Approach: “Crying out Method”

Direct Approach: “Crying out Method"

They majority of mums have a fear of sleep training with the help of a Sleep consultant, they fear the crying out method. This method is NOT used by Zzleep my baby, however I will explain the science behind it.

In the Sleep Consultant circle this method is known by the “extinction” and is based on Ignoring the cry or call of your baby this is the most difficult for parents and especially for the mum if she still breast feeding, as she won’t know with certainty if the baby is hungry.

When this method is applied the crying in a baby will increase, and if is the technique chosen by the family is necessary to have an action plan and routine in place for the consistency and effectiveness.

 Surveys have demonstrated that lots of families still using this approach due to advise by other parents or as the last resort, especially when they don’t know about the existence of the professionals in the field, Zzleep my baby can help you with gentle techniques for the baby and the mother.

Sleep Tips for Infants

Liliana Amaro

  • Establish a regular sleep time for your baby.
  • Create a consistent, enjoyable and short bed routine.
  • Avoid feeding your baby to sleep. If necessary feed him earlier.
  • Put your baby to bed drowsy but awake, this will encourage him to fall asleep independently. A baby that can self-soothe to sleep at bed time, will be able to do it at any time during the night.

Mus that follow routines will be able to enjoy a more predictable and balanced life style.
