Tips for mothers to regulate sleep patterns for babies aged 9 to 12 months:
1. If your baby has a daily habit that has been done regularly and never changes every day, then you can be sure that your baby will find it easier to sleep at night.
2. It is best for the mother to commit to a time and establish a routine for sleeping at night. Create a fun routine for the baby before he goes to bed. For example, when he doesn’t really like changing clothes before going to bed, then you should put this activity first before any other fun activity you do.
3. Ability motor system being trained so that your baby is too active when going to sleep or waking up at night is used for training. If your baby can’t do what he wants on his own, then usually the baby will cry. You should not invite him to play, you just need to persuade him to get your baby back to sleep.
4. Mothers can try to give a little opportunity to train your baby to sleep on its own. If your baby is always accustomed to depending on the mother such as patting, being carried when going to sleep and accompanied when he sleeps, this will make your baby cry when he wakes up at night and does not see the mother next to him.
5. Anxiety caused by waking up during sleep and not seeing a mother around him can make your baby cry. If so, you should immediately approach your baby. That way usually the baby can stop crying.
By getting your baby to sleep alone when he is 6 months old or more, letting your baby sleep alone does not mean you are losing time with your baby. When you can adjust your baby’s sleep patterns, this can make your baby healthier and you can spend time with your husband. Attention and communication over the division of tasks for you and your husband can make all difficulties feel easier. Besides that, communication between you and your baby is also very important, emotional closeness is also very necessary to maintain the relationship between mother and child.
