Babies Aged 2 Months Often Sleep At Half Past 3 In The Morning?
Hello … I want to ask … Why do 2 month old babies often sleep at the set time of 3 in the morning?
Thank you for the question.
Babies that are still very small are generally not able to adapt well enough to the changes day and night. Therefore, sleep patterns are often irregular, unlike adults. Although not always dangerous, this condition must be changed early on. Therefore, good sleep patterns are important in supporting your baby's growth and development. Not only that, irregular baby sleep patterns can make you who take care of them become fatigued and easily experience stress.
So that your baby's sleep patterns are more regular, the best thing to do is:
Create a regular schedule for breastfeeding, bathing and playing for your baby, so, indirectly, his sleep and wake patterns will be more regular In the morning to evening, condition the environment around the baby to stay bright and noisy so he knows that it's time awake. Meanwhile, at night, condition the environment around the baby to be quiet and dim, so that he knows that it's time to sleep. In the afternoon and evening, limit sleep that is too long on your baby When going to sleep, make the baby feel comfortable, namely by bathing him in warm water in the afternoon, giving him comfortable clothing, gently massaging his body, changing his diaper, burping he after feeding , and chanting that makes him sleepy Of course, the above efforts should not be done suddenly, but gradually over several days to weeks. Although it's not easy, as long as you are patient and disciplined, often the steps above can help to make the baby sleep more regularly.
If it still doesn't work after a few weeks, don't hesitate to consult further with your doctor or pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
