14 Things That Affect Baby Sleep (And Ruin Your Night)

Hi mommy
One good thing though u hv struggles is that u try to put him on bed.
What I would suggest is try to put him to sleep on ur lap, when is almost going to close his eyes put him immediately on bed before he sleeps.
Have consistency, they will resist bit try until it becomes a practice

Vaishnavi does ur baby sleep on ur shoulder ? If yes, make him sleep on ur shoulder and once he is fully slept.. place him on bed and pat him slowly on back.. make sure to sleep nearby to him atleast for sometime so that he feels secure..

Also after placing on bed try to sing lullabies in low tone.. am sure he will enjoy it and fall into sleep 😃😃

@Ruqaiya Khan pl advise

Sowmya Prithvi (sonu)

Allow baby to play on the bed, he vl get tired and sleep by his own.. u just sit on bed and have an eye on him.

Dear.Vaishnavi , as baby is 9 month old he will fight any new change in sleep. U must now try to put baby to sleep with his eyes open on his bed; flat surface. Pat baby botton slowly as if rocking so baby feels sleepy and falls asleep. Try this method several times . Do not use cloth cradle as 9 month old has grown out of it. Lay him down wen he is sleepy n.try to pat slowly . This will take time n patience but some babies will only.cry one night and leanr to sleep from second night itslef. All the best

I tried as what sowmya said.. he played until 1am and got totally tired , started crying asking for my lap.. he struggled to crawl on my lap to sleep...
I couldnt control more than that.. so made him sleep on my lap... and the same story while shifting him to bed..

Vaishnavi

Consistency matters, in a week or so everything will settle. Keep practicing patiently.
