Between 2 and 3 months of age most babies are still sleeping pretty.
Sporadically maybe sick 4 to 6 hours at night but all in all they usually sleep about 11 to 14 hours during each 24-hour period.
But they’re probably still wanting to eat frequently because their tummies are still a little bit small and they’re growing quickly so they want to eat smaller amounts more frequently throughout the day. Typically about 3 to 4 ounces every 3 to 4 hours.
Now babies start to understand the difference between night and day around 6 to 8 weeks and have developed the circadian rhythm.
That you and I have so that when it’s dark our bodies want to sleep and when it’s light we want to be awake but
until this happens until your baby kind of develops more of a routine.
Which usually starts to happen between 3 and 6 months it’s normal for your baby to be up at night and you mentioned.
Don’t Held Your Baby on Your Sleep ( Its Dangerous!!!)
Specifically that you have a question about how your daughter just wants to be held by you all the time and doesn’t
sleep very well when you put her in her own bed and this is actually pretty normal.
Although that doesn’t make it any easier for you to cope with.
I’m sure because it makes it really hard for you to get any sleep.
You mentioned bringing her in bed with you and at all cost that should be avoided because the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies do not Co sleep with their parents because it really increases the risk of SIDS.
How To keep Baby Safe Doring Their Sleep Without Held them?
Make sure she always is sleeping in her own sleeping area and it’s best if she’s on a tight-fitted mattress in her crib
and that there’s no extra soft fluffy things in her sleeping area so no bumper pads pillows stuffed animals or extra
You can try swaddling her though loosely and see if this helps her feel tight and secure.
But yet it’s not restrictive enough that if she starts to wiggle around and move and come out of the swaddle that it wakes her up.
Most parents when they swaddle their baby put the blankie underneath their kids , lay em on top and then put one corner of the blanket around their back .
Put the middle pull the middle part of the blanket up and then wrap the third piece around their back and tuck it underneath so they’re really tightly packed in there.
But try doing it with her arms out so you can try swaddling her from behind with her arms hanging out , so it’s just beneath her armpit so that she’s still free to move her arms around.
Maybe leave the bottom open so just pull one side around her and then the other or actually gets a little bit older and starts rolling around.
Probably around four months of age then you can just try putting the blanket on top of her and you know
tightening it on either side of her.
Parents say snug as a bug in a rug and tuck it from the top to the bottom then this again allows her some freedom to move but makes her feel tight and secure.
So try that um see if that helps at all but if she’s just really fast you also mentioned crying it out and at two-and-a-half months there are mixed feelings about.
You know whether or not you should let a baby cry it out at that point some experts say it’s fine.
Others say you should wait until your baby’s a little bit older.
I recommend asking your pediatrician what they think because they’re aware of your situation they can ask you more specific questions and they’re aware of your baby’s health history.
They can give you the best guidance and suggestions when it comes to that and your baby being only two and
a half months old.
But once your baby’s about four months of age and they’re not eating during the night then crying it
out might be an okay option but again follow the direction of your.
