Schedule The Best Baby Sleep Habits

Schedule The Best Baby Sleep Habits

Sleep times vary widely and your baby should sleep 10-12 hours at night and 3-4 hours during the day. At first, your newborn will likely experience day-night confusion, which may take several weeks to settle down, and will need to feed every three hours.

Some babies will continue to need to be fed every three hours until they are 3 months old. For more detailed instructions on how to speed up this process, check out our newborn sleep tips on this website

During this time, babies begin to process sleep more than adults, which can cause sleep association problems if your baby doesn't learn to fall asleep on his own (without a pacifier, you rock him, etc.). 

Many 4-month-olds still need up to two dinners, with the longest period of sleep usually being the first five hours. Getting to bed early and getting a good night's sleep is essential for a good night's sleep, but for many babies it may still be too early to schedule it. At this age you can expect an earlier bedtime (6-8 hours) and your baby should sleep 11-12 hours at night and 2-3 hours during the day.

To set a proper schedule, you must log his sleep. You can use pen and paper or online baby graphics software. All naps should last at least an hour, except for the third nap, which is usually just a 30-45 minute nap to help you fall asleep. 

Many babies nap three times in 9 months, but some babies only sleep twice, and others sleep three to two times around 8 months. Many babies have slept through the night without food, some still need dinner. Continue to sleep earlier (6-20 hours) at this age and your baby should still sleep 11-12 hours at night and 2-3 hours during the day.
