Tips to help with day and night confusion

It’s 2 am and your newborn is wide awake leaving you up all night!

Some babies may have a hard time differentiating between day and night. This is because newborns don’t have much help in terms of melatonin production yet, which is the natural sleepy hormone we need to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Here are some tips on how to help with these problems!

Tip #1 – Start your day at 7:00 -7:30 AM

It may be tempting to sleep in, but we have to switch those days and nights around.

Tip #2 – Expose your baby to the morning sun

During the awake time, open the blinds, turn on the lights, or get outside to expose your baby to daylight.

Tip #3 – Try for an age-appropriate wake-up window

Good awake time during the day can lead to better sleep in the nighttime.

Tip #4 – Keep the environment dark

During the nighttime, keep the environment as dark as possible. Keep a night light for feeding or diaper changes, but turn it off after!

Tip #5 – Join a baby sleep coaching program

By joining a sleep coaching program, you will be able to meet your baby’s needs and set your days and nights up for success.
