Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
1 year old baby
hi Raveena...I have a 5 month old baby too with decent sleep patterns. I ensure to give him an evening bath at 7:30 or 8 pm.. and he immediately goes to sleep after having milk
n then wakes up arnd 2 am for milk and later only at 6:30-7. the evening bath helps. in the morning I try to bathe him by 9:30-10 am max post which he sleeps again for arnd 2 hrs.

ruqaiya ...plz help her...
shweta bath after 6 is not a prob?? i hv heard babies catch cold
hi Raveena not at all.. a hot/warm water bath is great to help with a good sleep. my little never had a cold even though he is on formula milk. since beginning. also m sure they feel cleaner n fresher after all the urine and potty sessions. I wud say try it.. no harm in trying . if it works well and good. :)
dear Raveena , can I know baby age.and weight.. breasfed or formula .
she is 5.5 months.. 5.8 kg. birth weight was 2.9kg..
she is breastfed
dear Raveena , ur baby is a little underweight for 5 months . but u can still do alot abt her sleep pattern . thats is doable . i want u to try this instead of letting ur baby sleep till 12 pm wake her up at 8 in morning .as u do this major change make sure her naps are in order through out the day . the baby will feel sleepy at 8 in evening u can now.make 8 in evening her bedtime . but this will create a less confusion if u do.it regularly and not jus for two days or three days. in a week baby will sleep at 8 to.8 also at this stage will wake up.at night for milk.any more questions do.ask
ruqaiya she takes her bath at 9 n slps bck..
n if she slps
12 hrs at a stretch at nite hw long n hw many naps at day tym.
should naps also b scheduled??
dear Raveena , if the baby of 5 months is sleeping 12 hr at night it still needs 2-4 hrs sleep during day . u can divide this into two naps each . yes naps are soooo over looked but can make ur baby cranky or.well rested . a 5 month old sud not be awake for more than 3 hrs they get over tired and cant sleep.well.at night . If u get the naps right the night will be.a bliss.
thanx a lot.. will start frm tomo..
n d worst part is she has got used to me.. she wants oly me.. nobody in d house can calm her dwn...n i just need to hug n she s quite.. happy n sad too.. sad coz its difficult.. day n night taking care of her.. gng sleepless n frgt the household chores
I know its hard Raveena , but try to set a daily routine .coz waking.up.at.night is ok . but.u can decide well wat is.baby bed time . wen u set a daily routine soon u will have more time n energy .but.as all things u have to work on it . all the best dear
tq ruqaiya fr sparing tym n helping .. thanx baby chakra app.. thanx all
