How can I help my baby sleep through the night?
No one really ‘sleeps through‘ the night. We all wake naturally between 3 and 6 times, this is an in built safety mechanism that takes us back to caveman times. We wake, we check our surroundings if everything is the same we just go back to sleep, most of the time we aren’t even aware we have done this. However, if a baby wakes and they are unable to self settle, they will naturally wake up and seek the same help they had at bedtime to put them back to sleep. In the early days, they will be waking due to hunger, comfort, needing a nappy change etc, as until they are 12 weeks old, there brains aren’t capable of developing the skill to self settle so they wake due to need.
