I guess, you will have to reset yours. No way around it.
Your baby will eventually change sleeping patterns , but in the meantime it is sleepless nights for everybody.
You are going to miss those days. believe me.
PS : Try to nap when your baby naps.
At one month old she shouldn't be sleeping all through the night anyway. As much as it su(ks, she has to eat every 4 hours, so you should be waking her up at least once. Alot of people are afraid to wake babies up, but it's really effective at regulating their sleep patterns, because the worst thing you can do is let her get too hungry (in which case she starts getting control of the feeding process - and thus the sleeping process too). Keep her awake during all feedings, don't let her doze off and *above all*, try to keep the noise level down during both day and night. Kids whose nervous systems get jacked during the day oftentimes have a hard time sleeping at night.
Prob solved if you stick to that plan.
Typically there are very good reasons why your baby is waking up in the night. It could be colic, maybe the baby wet her diapers, or after the night feed, you have not burped baby enough. At 1 month old, they typically need 4 hour feeds. This is of course only an average, they range from 2 hours to 4 hours, it varies. I would recommend that you observe closer to the activities before and after their cries and learn their "language"
It could help however, if you are breast feeding, not to mention that it is alot more convenient. You could go to this site.
Apparently it is operated by a group of nurses. Maybe they could offer you some professional help or advise.
You can't and shouldn't. At one month old, your baby is entirely guided by mother nature. Most babies get their days and nights mixed up at some point, and it corrects itself. The other poster is correct that a baby that young should eat every two to four hours; the feeling we associate with hunger has not kicked in yet.
The lack of sleep for you is a killer, I know. But I promise it does get better. If you have a partner, try doing shifts. It helps a lot. The white noise suggestion is good, too; my toddler still falls alseep to a cd of it.
What is the environment around her during the day? Some babies are actually lulled to sleep by the noise and activity of daily life, just as they were in the womb. When the noise is gone, they wake up. Try white noise in her room as night. Mine still likes a fan now at two years old.
I wish you the best! This is an exhausting time, but you'll get through it!
I left the light on all night...then when it reset I started turning off the light at night....
It'll fix itself eventually. Although I will say that with both of mine I started them off with a routine from birth. Nothing harsh or strict, just the same things, in the same order every day, especially at night. Even as infants I fed, bathed, (when they were younger I nursed again before story time)read stories and said good night to my kids in that order, around 7-7:30 every night, the time was different with both as they both were different, but the routine was always the same. It took a while(my daughter was 2 1/2 months, my son 4 months) but they eventually got the hang of it. And I never made any noise going in to nurse them in the middle of the night, just a quick nursing, not much talking/stimulation, put them back in the crib and out of the room. It worked for me, but all kids are different, I wish you luck, and enjoy the time with them. :-)
no. you have to reset your own body clock.
Her days and nights are mixed up, dont worry this happens to most babies. You gotta try and turn it around. Keep her awake as long as you can and it should turn within a few days. Good luck!
You are going to need to bite the bullet and keep her awake more during the day. Let her nap in the earlier part of the day but keep her awake and busy in the later afternoon and evening. She may be fussy, but if you can do this for a few days, she should start to change her sleeping patterns!
i was blessed with a child that slept all night. but then he was on phenobarbitol so really he was drugged. just try to keep her awake during the day. play with her. get right down on the floor and don't worry how dumb you look.
or you can always reset your clock.
thats how one month old babys are, there is no resetting but it will change to normal when they are older
Ask her Doc if she can have a spoon of cereal mixed in her bottle before bed... I cant remember what age you can start that.
Try to keep her awake longer during the day........worth a shot.
