Sleep baby. How many different opinions on this issue! What can be done that can not be. What is good, what is bad. But, the child is not a household appliance, and the instructions are not attached to it. Therefore – how many parents, so many ways to put your child to sleep.
When I was pregnant for the first time, I did not know much. I didn’t have experience in communicating with babies, I didn’t care for my nephews. Therefore, listening to the older generation. I remember talking about my girlfriend, told the mother-in-law that she was putting her son to sleep at the breast. Mother-in-law said: That’s bad. Naturally in my head, this assessment was postponed.
When my daughter was born, I definitely wanted to feed her with my milk. And what do children do when they suck titia? That’s right, fall asleep. Naturally, my daughter automatically had this bad habit of falling asleep in my arms, sipping milk. For me, then it was a reason for experiences.
In the diary entries, no, no, yes, and these phrases zipped in accustomed to sleep with a tita. Now I know that this is a normal process, and that is how it should be. And before that, doubts about this sensibly poisoned my life.
With a son, I treat everything easier. Using the sleepy effect of GW, I taught him to sleep a long day. He had a period of bad daytime sleep: he slept for about 20 minutes and woke up. I quickly offered him Titia and he fell asleep again. Now here – 2 hours at least.
I remember the words of my mother-in-law. Well, why is it bad, then? Probably because the child is difficult to leave with someone other than mom, if he goes to sleep, only sucking breast. But if you fully breastfeed, another option is difficult to imagine.
I remember how I was told: Do not accustom to rock. So, and this is bad? And, for me, so commonplace. But what about the cradles, beds on the legs-arches? Our ancestors for this purpose also thought up them. And what do we want all the time against nature?
True, I really, never put my children to bed, swaying. Probably because both are on GW. They have their own method of falling asleep. And in the carriage and in the car, all the children happily fall asleep under the measured swing, so it turns out by itself.
Put in the crib – and all
There are such children. Honestly, this is fantastic for me. Mom of a familiar girl does just that. I envy a little: Well this is how much you can redo! Her daughter will lie down, lie down in the crib, then fall asleep. My son will not lie at all for a second. Of course, the girl’s breast hasn’t been sucking for a long time, but she will not refuse from a pacifier before going to bed.
Many of my familiar children go to bed with a bottle of milk. In principle – almost the same as with the breast – they eat milk and, well fed, fall asleep. Anyway – we will have to wean.
One familiar twin mom puts her son only in her arms, gently shaking him, although she does not breastfeed. In another way, he can not sleep. Grandmother once stayed with him, could not put to bed. By the way, when their children were several months old, they had trouble sleeping (like many people actually). So parents put them to bed, rolling in the car.
Our mothers-grandmothers are sure that to sleep in the arms of the mother is also bad and should not be taught. True, children do not agree with this 🙂 It’s good that now there are other opinions on this topic. Any mother can decide for herself whether she needs it or not.
Together on my mother’s and father’s bed
Even if they don’t breastfeed, many mothers go to bed with their baby and then transfer it to their bed. Children love to sleep next to her mother, stroke her hair, listen to the fairy tale … When I took my daughter away from my chest, I either went to bed with her on the big bed or sat next to her bed: she told her fairy tales, put her head on her pillow and waited she will fall asleep
Sleeping babies often becomes a problem. And while the children are small, for which only tricks the parents do not have to go to put the child to sleep. I am sure that with time all the problems quietly go away. After all, no one has ever had to put a schoolboy to sleep, shaking him. Or give a pacifier. So, I think that it is more convenient for someone, who has adapted as much as he is used to, and puts the child to sleep. And nothing bad or forbidden here can be. Gradually, everything settles.
Probably, you also came across this and thought out how to put your baby and how to make his sleep stronger? If not, then you are lucky …
