    What we look ahead is to have a peaceful sleep, if you are a parent of a new born baby, sleeping is something you have to give up at the end of the day. One common thing is babies sleep in day times and wake up throughout the whole night. Many babies have the difficulty of sleeping over night.

Normally newborn babies sleep the whole day and evidently will not sleep during the night. They do have naps, but we cannot expect the child to sleep at a stretch. They do sleep anywhere from fifteen to twenty hours. Every two hours, their small tummies need feeding. When you dress up the child or feed, make sure the light is dimmed, making things faster. If your dear one is bothered, it will take times to get back to sleep.

When babies do not have deep sleep, they keep crying and make all sorts of noise. If the baby continues to cry for several minutes, we should look for other reasons. The child might be uncomfortable, hungry, wet, cold, or even sick. When new born sleeps for longer period, they will be extra hungry and have to be feed frequently. You can always tutor the kid with signs, letting him know its bed timing. You can give the child bath, changing him into pajamas, feeding and rocking in the cradle will be the major signs to know that its bedtime.

Longer sleep patterns at night should be expectant. You should make available a regular timetable for feeding and sleeping. The job of the parent is let the child know how to soothe itself to sleep. You should teach the kid that nighttime is to sleep. Your child is least bothered what time his or her needs are met. Place your baby in the crib before sleeping. Let your child fall asleep independently and encourage him or her to go to bed even if they are disturbed. Do not disturb their sleep like talking or turning the lights on.

When your infant wakes in the middle of the night, the longer you wait to attend him the more distressed he is likely to become and the harder time he will have getting back to sleep. On the other hand, if you respond immediately to every whimper, you will train your baby to wake with every minor start and depend on your to fall back to sleep. So try to take the middle ground. Donít jump up the instant your baby makes a noise in the night but if the whimper persist for a few minute or escalate to cries, got to your child as soon as you can.

Teething can be a worrying experience for both baby and mother. Baby has an erg to chew and bite on things. Most probably, babies own finger will be in the mouth. Some can bare the pain, while some are fussy and irritated. Symptoms are drooling, coughing, chin rash, biting and gnawing, cheek rubbing and ear pulling. In addition, diarrhea, low-grade fever, running nose and not sleeping well are some other symptoms. If your baby develops high fever or diarrhea, you have to consult the pediatrician, for teething does not cause all these heavy symptoms

To help them out with pain, you can give them cold water, cold coffee, cold food and all cold stuffs. Keep trying different things to help out your child. Chilled cucumber and apple slices are recommended. If things do not work with cold food, you can also turn to infant Tylenol. Though applying teething pain medicines to the gum helps your kid, consult your doctor for suggestions and prescriptions. Besides all these, seeing your child teething is a pleasant as well as exciting moment ever to remember.
