Sleep Patterns For Babies Aged 2 Months Who Wake Up Frequently?
, my baby is 2 months and 5 days old, since 2 days from morning to night at 7 o’clock when I drink breast milk, I immediately sleep soundly but when the nipple is pulled out, I wake up again. But if at 9 o’clock after drinking breastmilk, immediately bobo in the morning at 3. Is this the growth spurt phase? Is it dangerous for my baby to sleep like that? Thank you
Hi Alcisani, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Babies aged 2 months will normally sleep 14-17 hours a day, which is divided into 8-13 hours of sleep at night, and 4-6 hours of sleep during the day. Sleeping during the day will usually be divided into 3-4 sleeps, each ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Babies can only stay awake for about 1-2 hours. When experiencing a growth spurt or a period of rapid growth, babies can sleep longer than usual.
Letting the baby fall asleep while breastfeeding is not recommended because it can have several negative effects, for example:
The baby's nutrition is not fulfilled because breastfeeding is only a little and has fallen asleep, the baby is unable to sleep alone without being breastfed. The baby often wakes up because he cannot fall asleep on his own if he is not breastfed. breastfeeding, you can try to stop getting your baby to sleep while breastfeeding. Some of the things you can try to do:
Shift the time to feed the baby, nurse the baby when the baby just wakes up. Wake the baby when the baby falls asleep while feeding. You can undress the baby while breastfeeding to keep the baby awake. Do not hold or cradle the baby until the baby is fast asleep and then put on the bed. Rock the baby until the baby is sleepy, then put the baby in the bed so the baby can sleep alone. You can help by gently patting or stroking the baby's chest so that the baby falls asleep on its own. If the baby cries when put down, do not immediately carry it back, but try to calm it down with a soft song or a soft hiss while tapping or stroking the baby's chest until the baby sleeps alone.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
