Newborns wake regularly. They often have needs and because they still need to learn about the night and routines, sleeping eight hours will not happen at this stage (I talk about the parents). As the baby gets older this will stop (YEY sleep), but until then you’ll need to understand what he or she wants when waked in the middle of the night. You can read some tips on how to calm your baby on our previous post, just click here.
Baby signs of tiredness often are expressed by whining, fussing, tense movements, eyes rubbing of course yawning and so on. Crying often is a sign of attention so you can pick up your baby sing a song, spent little time with them, even in the middle of the night, but when you calm them you can sleep if not you will not sleep. Don’t discourage yourself as we talked before, when your baby grows up walking and not sleeping will stop. Best advice would be to adapt and embrace the responsibility.
