My Best Parenting Advice: One Eye on the Baby, One Eye on the Clock? How long can Baby stay awake? I need sleep! by Tracy Spackman
I love to use technology to make life easier! Who doesn’t?! Have you thought about using your smart phone timer to think LESS about your baby timing? Let me explain.
But what about night sleep? Aim for 12 hours at night after 4 months. (Including wake ups.) If he wakes at 6am, aim for a bedtime of 6pm. Catching his sleep window for all his naps can make night sleep easier. Go ahead and use your crutches for naps. Motion sleep or nursing to sleep is better than no sleep. Sleep begets sleep. A good nap day makes for a better night’s sleep. At 4 months things may be getting a little crazy so do what ever it takes to get the sleep. Soon, he will be old enough to learn serious sleep skills.
