Forming A Sleeping Pattern For Your Baby
Your baby can be help to sleep by Pavlov’s dogs. Pavlov’s dogs provided a way for babies to sleep. Ivan Pavlov and his dog’s experiment are a pair who if you have heard of them then you know what the benefits of conditioning are. The dog’s were taught that when the bell rang it was a cue to eat. With time the dogs adjusted to the fact that the every time the bell rang it was eating time. Easy, right? The feeding cue for the dogs was the bell which they would react to accordingly once it rang. We will discuss a baby’s sleep training and not dogs cue to feed.
The perception is similar it is only that we know that here it is the baby but thet training condition is similar. Pick your baby’s sleeping cues by following your baby’s routine.
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 noble thought. It is however not easy as written. Some elements need to taken into account for this concept to work.
You should get a program for the baby to be followed daily. This is because a timetable equals consistency and consistency equally ability to predict. If you constantly follow the steps daily for each night the baby should be able to predict and will pick what follows what and know your cue for time to sleep.
Sometime you want to help the baby to settle so she can sleep on her own.
There are times when you have to sway the baby and this should be consistent and gentle.
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. A cue could involve bathtime. The child will know that soon after bathing , there will be a few other activities all centered around sleep and so at the time you will say it is bed time everybody should just go to bed.
Since conception when the baby is in the womb they grow accustomed to the womb. A baby will feel quite insecure if they came into the world with a lot of vitality. For a baby to sleep properly the transition from the womb to the world should be gentle and smooth.
