Reasons why babies often wake up in the middle of the night

Under 6 months old, it is completely normal for your baby to wake up a few times a night to nurse.

If some nights your baby cries non-stop and you can’t find an effective way to soothe him, he may have colic or another illness…

When the baby is about 7-8 months old, many parents worry because they see their baby crying at night.

Don’t rush to console your baby when he cries in the middle of the night

Research by the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne (Australia) shows that if parents `ignore` the times their children cry in the middle of the night, the baby will gradually create a better sleep pattern for themselves.

Experts analyze that when a baby cries at night, parents need to wait a while to comfort the baby and this will help the baby know how to `soothe` themselves.

Help your baby sleep better


+ Turn off the lights to lull your baby to sleep: Darkness helps the body release the hormone melatonin that causes sleepiness, so your baby will have deep, prolonged sleep and grow.

+ Follow the sleep-wake rhythm: Newborns sleep an average of 16-17 hours a day and divide it into `wake-sleep` cycles every 3 hours, regardless of day and night.

– Should not:

+ Talk when your baby wakes up in the middle of the night: Many sleeping parents are suddenly startled when they see their baby open their eyes wide.

+ Eat before bedtime: Many mothers are too rigid about breastfeeding and feeding times, so when bedtime comes they force their children to eat more cheese, or wake them up to drink milk.
