How To Train Your Baby How To Sleep

Your baby can be help to sleep by Pavlov’s dogs. Pavlov’s dogs provided a way for babies to sleep. If you have heard of Ivan Pavlov and his dogs experiment then you know and appreciate the conditioning benefits. The training that Ivan taught the dogs was that at the chime of the bell then it was a feeding cue. The dogs eating time was scheduled for any time the bell rang. Easy, right? The dogs knew that it was time to feed each the bell rang and as such they would go over the place where they were served the food. However, the issue here isn’t dogs it is the baby’s sleep pattern.

The training aspect of both the dogs and the baby are similarly the only difference is that we know the baby is not a dog. Keenly follow the baby’s routine and look out for sleeping cues.

The sleeping cues are helpful to your baby as you will know the sleeping time and the behavior that should tell your it is time to sleep.

This is a good concept I’m sure. It is however not easy as written. For this idea to work it is a must you consider some aspects.

One, you need a constant organized timetable for the baby on a daily basis. This is because a timetable equals consistency and consistency equally ability to predict. These steps if followed daily every night the baby will predict and know what comes after the current activity and detect the cue that is supposed to be for sleeping.

Sometime you want to help the baby to settle so she can sleep on her own.

During the times when you decide that you want to put the baby to sleep make sure you do it consistently and gently.

When the baby is being swayed it is assisted to sleep by some rhythms. The swaying if needed should be gentle for the baby’s relaxation because if it is done fast the baby will think it’s a cue to play.

The next schedule that should be implement is the parents. One good cue is time for taking a bath. Children pick schedules faster so if you start it by bathing followed by activities geared towards bedtime by the time you tell the child to go to sleep it will be easy.

Since conception when the baby is in the womb they grow accustomed to the womb. No baby can come to the world with a lot of stimuli as it is feared there will be an issue of insecurity. A baby should be assisted to shift from womb to the world smoothly as this will ensure they sleep better.
