Every Baby is Different: Guidance in getting your baby to sleep well
Page 2

It’s very important not to let your baby sleep while on the breast or they will begin to associate the two things together and you will be unable to get your child to sleep without feeding him or her. It is natural for your baby to begin to fall asleep while feeding as the milk has a natural substance that helps induce sleep. However, gently pry your baby’s mouth off or your nipple by sticking your finger in the side of his or her mouth to release the suction. If you do this before your baby falls into a deep sleep, you will ensure that your baby does not continue to suck and use feeding time as his or her only means to get to sleep.

Experiment with rocking techniques

This is one area where every baby is the different, but very much the same. All babies love to be rocked, bounced and cuddled – all at the same time. Experiment with the technique that works best for you. In our house we would sometimes put our baby in his car seat and swing it from side to side. This made our baby sleep, but it was quite a chore for us. There are moments in a newborn baby’s life when you will try anything to help your baby go to sleep. Don’t be alarmed if you find yourself walking up and down the stairs or even vacuuming with your baby in tow in an effort to comfort your baby. After all, it’s a completely natural instinct.
