    Many parents wish to see their baby crawl and no doubt it is one of the major milestones for a baby. The child automatically masters how to balance on his knees and hands, later he will move forward and backward by pushing with his knees. Crawling is a baby's first experience with independent movement. It strengthens their neck, link and trunk muscles and prepares the childís body for walking.

It ensures that arm, leg, and back muscles are strong enough to keep them strong, stable and upright. But crawling does more than just strengthen their body. Crawling actually strengthens their brain and is their first step toward future learning.

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.

At the age of 1 to 4, the child needs mom or dad to be beside them. This makes them stay awake. Starting from six months your child is partly free from sleeping in the daytime. As day goes, your child finds it easier to sleep on its own. If your child is sleepy; at daylight, let them have nap. Do not over tired them thinking that they might have a good sleep in night. Once you succeed in training your child to sleep through the night, keep in mind that there may be times when she is still wakeful. You may need to help your child reestablish her bedtime routine. Comfort your child for a peaceful sleep; let your kid have a good night.
