Q:

Hi mommies/doctors over here, whatevr i try my 7.5mo baby doesnt sleep at night n i only hav to take care at day time also.. my hubby r mil both cant compromise their sleep as both r working.
i have become so weak pls advice some tablets r vitamin supplements for me to b active n gain more energy.



Prashasti Kamat

is there anyone else like ur sis or mom who can visit u during the daytime to tke care of the baby..so u can catch up on ur sleep. also set a routine for ur baby at night like dimming the lights, play some soft music like lullabies, and lie down with the baby. it will take some time but eventually the baby will learn to sleep. start by putting him early to bed. Also if the baby is sleeping in the evenings try to reduce his sleep time in the evenings so that he can sleep in the night

Prashasti Kamat

pls eat on time and healthy food...that will give u more energy than supplements...also u can chk with doc for calcium tabs

one thing you can try is accustom the baby to a series of lullabies... say, three songs in a order... play or sing these three songs while putting baby to sleep... over a few days, baby will start associating these songs with sleep and will automatically fall asleep when you play them... it should be done at an earlier age, but you could try... also, if you have weaned him, give baby a boiled and mashed banana at around 8pm and then by 10 you should tire him out by playing and put him to sleep... set a routine which suits both you and baby... by now, baby should at most wake up for feeds only 1-2 times and sleep well rest of the night...

I have been working with Anusha , the thing is it takes work and patience to teach a baby to sleep . I am most certain Anusha can do this and  her baby will sleep .jus keep practicing 

Prashasti Kamat

sorry to hear that u tried everything and still not wrkng...i guess u need to continue a set pattern for her sleep and have patience. it will work normally babies tend to change their patterns every fortnight or monthly...so this thing will pass..till then hang in there

Anusha Purohit

everyone thank u so much.. i'm going to tak it positively n try setting a night pattern for her.

Sheeba Vijesh

Keep up the spirit Anusha.. and think of it as a phase, which will pass... God will give you strength... No food supplement(except maybe Redbull 😜) can make up for the lack of sleep... Atleast get some sleep when your husband and mil have offdays... Explain to them your situation...

hi anusha. by now ur baby shouldve been differentiating between night n day n they naturally would prefer to sleep at night. they should ideally sleep for 11-12 hours in night n two or three naps in d day time. make sure u create a schedule n stick to it religiously for few days. maybe ur baby doesn't sleep at night coz she is overstimulated. u can give her a massage followed by bath n dim d lights of the room n play some lullaby or sing one. n wind her down bit by bit n eventually d baby will fall asleep. once d routine will kick in the baby will start feeling sleepy. this is my routine. morning 9:30am get up: breakfast - playtime for an hour or so. then massage followed by bathing or sponging. 12-12:30 : nap 1. gets up 2:30-3 : lunch - playtime for an hour or so. 4-4:30- nap 2. get ups 6:30-7: dinner - playtime for half an hour, massage bathing (depending on d weather) dress change reading lullaby. sleeps around 10-10:30. diaper change 3:30-4 am. gets up in d morning around 8:30-9 am.

Anusha Purohit

Hi Sheetal thank u very much, i too have a schedule. here it goes wakes up around 8.30am, bf at 9am, massaging n bath by 10am, nap1 from 10.15 to 12, lunch by 12.15pm, play time for 1.5hrs, again nap2 around 2.30pm til 3.30 ( r sometimes 3 to 4) i'll feed at 4.30 play time til 6.30 then dinner at 7pm and finally massage n bath ( started from today) at 7.30 n i'll put her to sleep around 8-8.15pm.

Anusha Purohit

ruqaiya khan

anusha i cant get ur msg my chat is not working .

Anusha Purohit

oh actually i texted u couple of days ago n was waiting for ur reply..

ruqaiya khan

i cant get ur text tell me wat it is

Anusha Purohit

i have set a routine n she sleeps better with it now.. hardly she wakes up once r twice.. n i can make out that she isnt hungry at night but jus a habit.. i give some water she goes back to sleep n i give her BM if she cries..
but i told u how is her crib to sleep na initially she needs it to fall asleep but later wen she wakes in the middle she ll sleep next to me..

Anusha Purohit

n also ur patting trick worked well.. wenevr she wakes up n finds it hard to fall asleep again i ll not pick her up immediately but jus pat her slowly n she ll sleep.. thank u so much for that idea 😊

ruqaiya khan

dear Anusha , I am glad the advice was.helpful . cud u write me a review I wud be very grateful . take care n send my kisses to the baby .
