Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?

2 years old baby
Dr. Namita Shenai Vadhavkar
Leena it takes time for a sound sleep at night. Pat him back to sleep unless the baby is very hungry. It takes time.
even my baby do the same
Leena and Madhura.. It takes time to get settled. Till baby is 6 months, it will be only on breast milk..so it will wake up too often. Once you start with solids...slowly things will settle as baby will take time to digest and feeling of fullness also will be there. Sleep whenever baby sleeps ( in day time also). Initially Everything your activity will be according to baby. Take naps whenever possible. Take care
but in between he used to sleep for 4 hours at a stretch, now doesn't do that
babies keep putting up surprises, now and then... don't worry, things will settle down, you will have to have patience...
dear Leena , can u give me baby age and weight .
age is 5.5 months and weight is 6.9kgs
dear leena , the good news is ur baby is well capable of 12 hr sleep. if he was sleeping well before means he can do it again . i need to know how he falls asleep and does he sleep in his own bed .his weight n age is perfect to sleep well more than 1.5 hrs
yes on his cot he sleeps
thanks dear for fast reply
does he fall asleep only after breastfeeding?
no but yes in middle of night wen he wakes up he sleeps as soon as he is done breastfeeding
same problem but my baby is only 27 days old, and is having formula feed. is it normal in case of ff as well
dear tutun , ur baby is very young will get up for milk at night but Leena baby can sleep he is 6 month old
i will be joining work soon! i would need to be fresh, hence asking!
what do you suggest ruqaiya
thank u ruqaiya
Dear Leena, whenever your baby wakes up at night I want you to not feed him try to soothe his crying by gently humming to him ,slightly patting ,or keeping ur hand on his chest till he stops crying n falls asleep again .he doesnt need milk he can sleep long hrs.remove the habit.of needing milk to fall asleep.let me know how this goes
is it Because he is on exclusive breast feed and is thirsty, should i start weaning
as he just takes few sips n falls asleep
u can breastfeed as long as u want . I am telling the baby in night doesnt need the milk they can drink during day time .so u can fed during daytime.at night he is only taking sips becoz he is not hungry but he wants to suck a little to fall asleep. here is where the mistake is .dont think he is hungry he wants to sleep need a little sucking to go back to bed. so at night when.he wakes up try to use other ways to get him back to sleep rather than feeding .it will take time but he can sleep more than.8 hrs at his age
hi ruqaiya, my baby sleeps for 4 hours at a stretch now but rest of times wen he wakes up wants feeding only, you had suggested to pat n Humm,but it's not working
