Gentle Ways To Help Your Child Sleep Through the NIght

helping baby sleep better WITHOUT letting them cry it out.
One of the biggest challenges a new parent faces is with a child who won't sleep. Here are a few gentle ways to help your child sleep through the night (aka alternatives to crying it out)
We talked about this last night, but I found a post that may be helpful to you! Despite the advice of some well-meaning people, I never resorted to crying-it-out with Jack. I believe all parents have the right to make the best decision for their child, and Forrest and I never felt good about letting Jack cry-it-out, despite his terrible sleep problems. He’s had health problems since the day he was born, that often result in pain, so we just didn’t think it was the right decision for us. And before any of you think I’m judging you if you used crying it out, I’m not. It just wasn’t right for us! Because of that decision to not use the cry-it-out method, I found myself searching high and low for tips to help Jack sleep better. Even though it took a little longer to get him to sleep through the night, it was worth the effort and sleepless nights. He now goes to bed really easily (well, at least when we are at home) and takes a nap every day between two and four hours. I like to think we’re being rewarded for those many sleepless nights. If you are finding yourself with a child who just won’t sleep, but for whatever reason don’t want to use crying it out, here are a few things we did that we found effective. Some of these ideas are based off of The No-Cry Sleep Solution, which is a book I highly recommend. It’s very well-written and has some great tips. While none of these are fast fixes, I believe they are gentle ways to help your child be more comfortable! 1) Routine Children are creatures of habit. I think one of the most important things you can do is establish a sleep routine early on. With Jack, we usually put him down to sleep at the same time every night, but it wasn’t until we finally started having a very specific routine right before bedtime that he not only stopped fighting us when we put him down to sleep but seems to look forward to our nightly rituals. I’m sure our routine seems a little bit silly to some, but it works. One night when I was away taking some photos for my sister-in-law, Jack was having problems going to sleep, so I sang to him over the phone the song we always sing, and it helped. It can be hard to make sure your child goes to sleep around the same time every night, but it’s important to try and do so. Their bodies start to get trained to get tired around the same time if it’s done over and over again. If you are putting your child to sleep at random times, it can confuse them, making it hard to get them to sleep ever! 2) Comfort I think it’s important to make sure your child is comfortable and knows you haven’t abandoned them. Whether or not you decide to have your child cry-it-out is up to you, but whatever you do, let them know you haven’t left them to the wolves. Before your put your child down at night, be sure to make sure they have a clean diaper on (who wants to sleep in a wet one? No child I know), and that the clothing they are wearing are appropriate for the climate and temperature. There have been a few times that we put my son to bed with just a onesie on, and he woke up earlier than usual because he was so cold. Giving your child a comfort item at night is a great idea, too. Whether it’s a favorite blanket, a stuffed animal, or something else, having something to cuddle at night can help them feel less alone. For my son, he has to have some of his little trains, his “Grammy” blanket, and his WubbaNub before he’ll let us leave the room. 3) Wind Down Time This is something Forrest swears by. It seems like right before bedtime is when Jack gets the most wound up, especially when we’ve been spending time with family. For anyone, it can be hard to go straight from non-stop fun, to non-stop quietness. Right before naptime and bedtime, we take about 10-15 minutes where we help our son wind down a little bit. It usually involves reading a book, or just snuggling on the couch, but we’ve found that he goes to sleep much eaiser if he’s not wired. And when you think about it, isn’t that the same for most of us? I know that when I try to go to bed after a rather intense workout, or even watching a captivating television show, I have a really hard time falling asleep. It can take some time to wind down, but the ten minutes that it takes is worth it, when it prevents 60 minutes of whining and trying to avoid sleep. 4) Sleep Associations The author of the No Cry Sleep Solution suggested creating “sleep associations,” which is basically something that the child only associates with sleep. This can be anything from soft music playing, to a blanket, to lavender essential oils in a diffuser — it just has to be something that is only used during sleep time. It may take time to create a sleep association, but after a little bit of consistency, these sleep associations can be incredibly powerful and comforting. For Jack, we have some white noise that we only put on right before bedtime or nap time, and as soon as it goes on, he falls asleep pretty soon after. 5) Wear their blanket This is something that works best with younger children (under about a year.) Infants are usually comforted immensely by the scent of their mother, especially at night time. And since you probably don’t really want to climb in their crib and sleep with them, putting a blanket, or even an article of clothing, near them that smells like you can help calm them down. When Jack was smaller, I would often put his swaddling blanket (the Aden and Anais brand is the BEST) around my neck, like a scarf, for about two hours before I wanted to put him to bed. When it was bedtime, I would swaddle him in it, and I really feel like it helped him fall sleep faster and for longer. It’s not recommended to put loose blankets or pillows in a baby’s bed when they are young, so keep that in mind. 6) Bath A lot of children are very soothed by their baths, and it can really help them sleep better. Jack isn’t one of those children — he’s hated bath time since he was about nine months old. However, from everything I’ve read, giving your child a nice, warm bath right before bedtime can help soothe their minds and body and prepare them for bed. Lavender is a scent that is oft associated with relaxation, so if your child isn’t sensitive to scents, I would recommend getting a lavender shampoo or bubble bath. We always like using Lavender and Chamomile from Baby Magic. 7) Rule Out Illness As I mentioned, our primary reason for avoiding crying it out with Jack was because of his health problems. He has had digestive problems, acid reflux, and ear infections since he was young, which does affect sleep. This was something we discovered after several doctor’s visits, and I’m grateful that investigated why he had so many problems sleeping. After countless ear infections, he had tubes put in, which almost immediately helped him sleep better. The stomach problems have been harder to help, and he does occasionally still wake up because of them, but not nearly as much as he did before. Not all children have health problems if they are having problems sleeping. However, some do, and if you find your child just won’t sleep, or cries inconsolably for hours, I would definitely consult your doctor. You never know if there’s any underlying problem! If you find that your child is having a lot of gas, one thing you can do is use gas drops. We never had a ton of success with this (since Jack’s problems were more than just gas), but I know a lot of people swear by them. 8) Patience It’s not realistic to expect your child to sleep through the night a few weeks after they are born. Nor is it realistic to think that it may not take a little bit of work. There will always be those children that start to sleep through the night, with no trouble, super early on, and then there will be others who, despite your best efforts, refuse to sleep for a very long time. Although it can be incredibly frustrating, and tiring, try and remember that “this too shall pass.” Easier said, than done, I know. But I promise, there will come a time when your child will sleep through the night, and you might just miss those middle of the night snuggles. As always, be careful with putting blankets, stuffed animals, or other objects in your child’s crib, especially when they are young. SOURCE
