Causes and Tips on How to Concur 4 Month Sleep Regression.
Sleep regression is the refusal for a baby who has been sleeping well, suddenly changes and refuses to nap or starts to sleeps for shorter intervals. The toddler starts waking up at night several times than he or she has been doing, or refuses to sleep entirely and take longer to fall asleep. Sleep regression mostly occur when the bay is around 3 or 4 months, and might still re-occur at 9 months, or when the baby hits a year and a half old. We discuss some causes of 4 month sleep regression as well as ways of lessening the effects.
At the age of 4 to 6 months, the baby has started noticing the things around him or her. Toddlers at 4 to 6 months spends time playing with adults and noticing the surrounding, there, the napping schedule gets interrupted. The toddler sleeps late hours, since the sleeping schedule was interfered with.
To minimize the cases of experiencing the regressions, schedule the plays so that they do not interfere with the toddlers napping time. Evening bath and massage is also a great way of reducing the sleep regressing.
Change of feeding schedule can also lead to 4 month regression. The toddler might not sleep well if fed earlier than usual. Try to maintain the feeding timetable, but if the change was unavoidable, in this case, the regression habits will last longer until the baby get used to the new feeding schedule.
Change of diet can also cause the sleep regression. A 6 months old toddler has not been introduced to several types of foods. A 4 to 6 months old toddler feeds on formula or breast milk. Any change to the above will interfere with the 6 months old sleeping schedule. Make such changes in the morning or daytime to give room for observing any side effects of change in diet.
Change of weather can also cause sleep regression especially to toddlers who are not used to travelling. A toddler who is 6 months old experiences changes in sleeping schedule with the change of weather and surroundings. Sleep regression can also be caused by conditions resulting from change of weather such as a cold or flu. Avoid travelling with toddlers of this age, unless where need be. Keep the toddler warm to avoid interfering with the napping schedule of the baby.
Come up with a routine to be followed during sleep time. The sleeping schedule can comprise of an early meal, bath and a story reading moment to make the toddler fall asleep.
To conclude, take note of the several methods of concurring the 4 month sleep regression. Note that not all methods will work for your toddler simply because they worked on a friend’s baby.
