Q:

My baby is 3 mnths old (was born premature). He is getting a bit cranky, remains awake till late night. Any tips for making baby sleep well. FYIP, I m feeding him enough.



Sheeba Vijesh

check if baby is colic. give tummy time, gently massage tummy in clockwise direction, apply hing dissolved in warm water around navel. if too cranky, consult with paediatrician...

Neha Sharma

small babies don't have any sleep pattern, u will have to help the baby understand the difference between day n night, wake up time and sleep time. keep the lights dim, comfortable room temp, loose clothes, full tummy and probably some soothing music like lullaby. colic/gas can be the issue too as it's very common in young babies, try to do some tummy massage, n leg cycling this will help release any gas. u can put baby on his tummy for few minutes too.

Is it only in the night? Then it maybe due to colic. Do ensure you burp baby very well

give baby massage if he likes the touch... keep massaging gently....and then feed him.... he might sleep then......i have been adviced this from elders. it works for me ..
