One of the biggest concerns for new parents is their baby not sleeping. Many times parents don’t understand how much their bodies can take and end up pushing the limits of their physical capacity. If this is your case, then it’s important to know that you’re not alone.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed after being deprived many hours of sleep. If you want to guarantee a good night’s rest for you and your baby you need to implement certain changes. In the beginning, it may take some work but if everyone in the family cooperates and perseveres, the changes will happen. Here are 4 common baby sleep problems and how to solve them.
1. Some Babies are Scared of the Dark
Being in a totally dark environment makes them feel like they’re alone. If the child has a problem with the dark then a night light can really help with making him (or her) feel more comfortable. However, studies have shown that it’s better to sleep in the dark because your body will naturally produce melatonin when it becomes dark. So when your baby has been sleeping for a while then you can turn off the nightlight.
