6 Month Old Babies Have Difficulty Sleeping During The Day?
my child is 6 months and 23 days old. Why is it difficult to sleep during the day … at least 30 minutes of napping is 3x. Dr jm 5 in the afternoon to 4 a.m. He just woke up then kept sleeping again … It’s normal for his age now
Hello Norawati, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.
Adequate sleep is needed by every baby to support its growth. The time needed to sleep in infants is very different from adults. Every baby sleeps differently for each age.
Adults normally need enough time to sleep for about 6-8 hours a day. Whereas in infants requires a longer time. Newborns need the longest amount of sleep. The more months / age of the baby, the sleep time will decrease according to his age.
For babies who are 6 months old, babies will need 14 hours of sleep each day. Usually, for 14 hours it will be divided into 3 hours for naps and 11 hours for night sleep. In your child, for normal sleep time according to his age. It's just time to sleep during the day, your child has less sleep than normal. And this is still said to be normal so you don't need to panic.
Right now what you can do is:
Keep providing the child's daily nutritional needs that are sufficient. Give MPASI according to the age of the child. Continue to monitor the development and growth of children. Take care of your child's health. That's all the answers I can give. Wish you good health always.
Thank you :)
