How to help settle your baby

There are many different routines and strategies you can implement to try and settle your baby to sleep. Remembering every baby is different, some babies thrive off routine and it works really well for the whole family, and other babies may not settle whether they have a bedtime routine or not. Your routine may differ slightly from a day sleep to a night sleep, but it can contain any or all of the settling techniques discussed below. Every strategy is going to work differently for every child, always persist and do what works best for you and your little one.

As your baby has just spent 9 months tucked up in your safe and warm womb, it is not surprising that they will love anything that replicates the womb or being close to you. 

Settling your baby in a dark room using a swaddle, white noise and movement are generally very effective ways to settle them to sleep. Swaddling is a simple strategy to relax your baby and help them feel warm and secure, as well as reducing their startle reflex which can wake them up while they are sleeping. Your midwife in hospital will show you and your partner how to swaddle your baby before you go home. You can buy affordable muslin wraps/swaddles or alternatively use a sleep suit which are easy to use, especially in the night. White noise or meditation music can also be relaxing for bub, or any sounds that are similar to the womb. White noise is defined as a type of noise that is produced by combining sounds of all different frequencies together. While your baby was growing in your womb, they could constantly hear different sounds including your heartbeat and breathing, therefore some babies like background noise playing when it is time to sleep because it is familiar to them. There is evidence to state that white noise can reduce the length of time that it takes for an adult or child to fall asleep, therefore it can help to settle your baby. In the womb, your baby also felt you move frequently even while you were sleeping. In the fourth trimester, babies enjoy movement and it can be a great way to help settle them to sleep. You can move them in your arms, put them in a baby carrier or pram, or use a baby bouncer or bassinet that moves. And lastly, your womb was quite dark for your baby, so often they will settle easier in a room that has dimmed lighting or completely dark. Using blackout blinds over windows can achieve a darker room.

One of the first steps in settling your baby is to reduce stimulation 30 minutes before bedtime. This includes; turning the lights down or off, everyone talking quietly and turning on some gentle music or white noise. Having a bedtime routine or ritual that works for your baby and your family can be vital in getting bub to settle to sleep easily. Also ensure that both parents are aware and do the same routine for your baby to keep consistency at bedtime. 

A warm bath or shower is very commonly part of bedtime routines around the world and can help to relax bub before it’s time for bed. It is a great reset after a busy day, and can also be quite calming for parent and baby, especially if you get in the shower or bath with them. After a bath, it is up to you how you want the bedtime routine to look. Often dressing bub into a onesie or sleep suit and reading a book can be a good way to help them wind down. After a book, a breastfeed or bottle-feed followed by a cuddle before placing your baby into bed will make them feel loved and comforted. Once they are in bed, some babies may settle better with a comforter toy to hold or a dummy/ pacifier to suck on. This is up to you and your choice if you want to introduce either of these to help them settle to sleep.

If a bedtime routine isn’t working for you or bub, you may need to implement some further settling techniques to assist them to settle to sleep. It is important to be aware of your baby’s tired signs, and begin their bedtime routine when they are showing early signs so they do not get overtired before you get them into bed.

Other settling techniques you could try, include:

  • Place baby in cot when settled but still awake. If they start to cry, try to settle them by patting them in the cot first. You can place bub on their side, firmly patting their back in a rhythmic motion, and once they are relaxed or falling to sleep roll them onto their back before you leave the room
  • Before leaving your baby’s room, you can also rock or jiggle the cot slightly to help them further relax and settle
  • If the patting technique is not successful and baby escalates, they may need extra cuddles and love which is SO normal. Remember mama, you can never spoil a baby!
  • Also having background music such as white noise in their room or making ‘ssshhhhh’ sounds can help them settle
  • Offer a top-up feed or dream feed if bub isn’t settling to rule out hunger
  • Also ensure your little one has an appropriate amount of clothing on, and they are not too hot or too cold. You could check their temperature for reassurance, to ensure it is within the normal range of 36.5 - 37.5 degrees.

Victoria:

Hello everyone my name is Victoria brown and I want to testify about how I was cured of HIV virus by Dr Omosun. I contacted HIV in the year 2018 from my ex boyfriend. I was so depressed and frustrated about life in general. I kept searching for solution for my health challenges and I bump into a testimony from a lady that got cured after using Dr Omosun’s Herbal medicine. At first I was skeptical because I made up my mind to contact Dr Omosun. He advised me on how to get the herbal medicine and the usage. I received my order through DHL after 3 working days. After weeks of using the herbal medicine I went for a test and result came back negative. I’m so happy to be healthy and free again. You can also reach Dr Omosun via email omosunharbalhome@gmail.com

How to get your ex boyfriend back even if it seems impossible.
My boyfriend that left me a few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. My boyfriend left me and I was devastated. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant for him. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my sister and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to give it a trail. I messaged the spell caster called dr.unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be ok, and he told me what is needed to be done and i provide the necessary things. He cast the spell and surprisingly 28 hours later my boyfriend called me. It was so surprising, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that has happened He wanted us to come back together. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to Dr.Unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your boyfriend moved to another girl, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..
Here his contact.

We can’t forget CYBER CREDIT GURU in a hurry. My husband was declared bankruptcy in 2019 (and we later on realized that the mobile home in which we lived was included). While I had a debt of $26k and about 9 negative items on my report. As a result, we couldn’t get a mortgage until we had our reports fixed. We were frustrated, there was absolutely nothing we could do until we encountered CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM / +1 (650) 439 0624 via a positive review about them on a blog. Today we are in a house of our own, all negative items removed and score raised from 430, 470 respectively to 782 each in 6 days. Thanks to team CyberGuru!

Carol Gavin:

Hello ladies, my husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost 5 years. I had an ectopic pregnancy in January 2017 Emergency ended in them removing my left Fallopian tube. In July 2019 I had an ultrasound where they noticed small cysts on my ovary. Gyno said I POSSIBLY have PCOS. Followed by that I had a hystero in August 2019 and my right tube was NOT blocked. It has been years and some months since the hystero and I have not naturally conceived. I pray everyday so I can have another baby because I want to give my son a sibling. He’s 3 and I feel like he is bored 😩. I did everything I could medically to make it possible but unfortunately getting a positive result was truly almost impossible. I never knew it was beyond medical until I was introduced to a powerful spell caster Dr Ozigidon who told me how spiritually my issue was, I just want to appreciate Dr. Ozigidon for restoring my fertility and helping me to be pregnant again. contact him via email; drozigidonhenz.spell.net@gmail.com} what-app +2349054750112.
