Gentle, effective help

for waking overnight

If your baby is over three months and still waking every couple of hours at night, you are probably exhausted. You need a bit of help. (Or a lot of help!)

Our most popular products for babies waking through the night are our Feeding to Sleep Tip Sheet and our Rocking/Cuddling to Sleep Tip Sheets.

Here’s what one our mums said about our tip sheets: “My bub is 5 months and was waking 4-6 times a night from midnight until 6am. I used this tip sheet and by night two my baby slept from 6pm – 5:45am!! I never thought it could be so quick! Highly recommend getting this. Happy Mumma!” Rebecca

WHY DO BABIES WAKE OVERNIGHT?

When your baby won’t sleep, it can be incredibly demoralising but sleeping through the night can mean different things at different times. (I know we all want it to mean, sleeping 12 hours straight without waking!!)

Let’s take a look at what happens as baby ages.

NEWBORNS

For a start, newborns need to feed regularly and can’t sleep more than a few hours without feeding. The early days of motherhood can be exhausting. You feel like you are living in another world and at times, everything takes on a slightly greyish tinge from sleep deprivation. For those who used to sleep eight hours a night, sleeping in small snatches can be brutal. It is normal to have a baby waking through the night when they are very little – their tiny tummies can’t take in any more milk to keep them going for longer.

12 WEEKS AND BEYOND

Things change as babies age and by 12 weeks, if your baby is sleeping five or six hours overnight, this is actually considered “sleeping through”. So take the pressure off yourself and your little one!

Smile politely and congratulate those mothers who tell you they have an exceptional baby and try to visualise puppies. Or kittens. Whatever works for you to avoid pouring your coffee into their handbag.

In terms of taking action, work on getting that routine happening because that is often what prompts babies to sleep longer.

Between three and four and half months you can really get your baby and yourself into a nice little routine, especially at night. It is around this time that your baby really can start to sleep for long periods overnight. If they haven’t started to do this by themselves then there are things you can do it get it happening.

I believe that babies of this age still need to be fed overnight if they haven’t naturally started to sleep through. They naturally know what they need to eat at this stage. But you can work it so that they are getting their biggest chunk of sleep over the middle of the night – and so you can get some good rest too.

BABY ROUTINES

One of the most important things to establish is the night time ritual and your baby should have a definite bedtime. Bedtime can be anytime between 6pm and 7pm but even if your baby doesn’t seem that tired, I wouldn’t wait longer than then or they will miss the part of the night when they tend to have the deepest and most refreshing sleep.

Once your baby has gone down for the night, they need to stay there for the whole of the night, only getting up to feed and then straight back to bed, no playtime, no chit chat, straight back to bed. You will notice now too that your baby doesn’t need to be awake for too long overnight, they usually start to feed much more quickly and can go back to sleep without too much fuss. It is still important that you give them time to burp after you have fed them but you may find that they are less bothered by wind and tummy pains than during the day.

SIX TO NINE MONTHS

Between six and nine months, your baby should be in a nice routine and sleeping well both day and night. If you are still feeding overnight, this is when you can start to reduce that and hopefully by nine months have a baby that is sleeping all night and by that I mean eleven to twelve hours, every night!

With gentle settling techniques and routines, you can get baby sleeping for longer without waking but getting a baby sleeping through the night is not always easy and it doesn’t happen automatically. Go easy on yourself.

NINE TO TWELVE MONTHS

By twelve months, babies should be able to sleep through without waking overnight and without requiring being settled back to sleep every time by someone. There are a range of gentle, effective techniques that can help without using controlled crying or cry-it-out techniques.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BABYBLISS

“Babybliss, the book, is basic, easy to read, understand and follow… The book is brilliant not only for mothers but for their partners as well. We have recommended this book to so many of our friends, and love talking to them about Babybliss.”

“I was, and still am stunned at how easy and quick Jo’s method was for getting my daughter (19 months) to sleep through the night… The night following our phone consultation, it was like a magic ‘BabyBliss’ wand had been waved and she was sleeping for 12 hours straight within 2 days. I would highly recommend BabyBliss to anyone who is even fleetingly considering it. Their services are worth every penny and more.”

“We could not be more thrilled with how Jo’s day visit transformed our little world. Jo was so amazing. She seemed to have a sixth sense about what our baby needed and how to calm her and best of all, she showed us so that we could do it ourselves in a way that made sense and was tailored to us perfectly. If you are considering engaging Jo’s services, don’t hesitate; just do it. Every moment you delay is one more moment between a more rested you and your happier baby.”
