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.

Creating a Healthy Sleep Routine for Your Little One

Please find this very Interesting Blog in where we have contribute for My Deal.com.au

Manage the situation if they wake up:

“If a baby has been nursed or rocked to sleep at bedtime since birth, it's not surprising that they wouldn't know how to fall asleep independently. The good news is that many babies can figure out how to get back to sleep within just a few minutes of waking up in the night! If your child continues to fuss or cry for more than a few minutes, you'll want to go in and offer some comfort, but it's important to let your child do the work of falling back to sleep. You can speak softly to your child and do some gentle rubbing or patting, but you should avoid picking your child up and rocking or nursing back to sleep.”

By teaching your child to fall back to sleep on their own, you can better set them up for an ongoing, healthy sleep schedule”

Is your kid an early riser?

Liliana Amaro

Is your kid an early riser?

early riser-baby

It has been proven by any of us that here in Australia many Kids become an early riser as summer days hit this side of the hemisphere and you wonder why this happens. Some regions understand and have accepted and every summer they change the clock to summertime, this helps to make use the daylight more efficiently and if you think it is logic in sense of sleep.

Our bodies follow circadian rhythms and are just logical that when the body receives some sort of light since noise and change of temperature it feels like waking time. This especially for younger kids and babies.

So here are some tips to make easy those early waking times.

·         Move bedtime earlier 15-30 minutes

·         Make sure the windows or room remains dark as possible in the morning

·        Hot? make sure the room is ventilated

·         If you hear a call in the morning before a reasonable waking time, wait a few minutes before responding.

·         If you have a kid under 3-keep it in the cot-wait the longest possible, he/she may resettle without help (make sure room is dark) If there is a window and they can see daylight is more likely they don’t want to sleep back.

·         If you have a kid sleeping in a bed- reward to staying bed until the desired time

·         Place a digital clock and teach the number to recognize, so that means is time to get up.

·         If still dark and he is waking up, after waiting: go to room explain that is not the time to get up and try to resettle.

·         If none of the above work for you-then is time to reinstate a mid-day NAP

If you have any questions or need a hand for any of these situations, please call or email always happy to help.
