To increase awareness for World Sleep Day and reinforce the importance of Sleep for physical, mental, and social well-being, leading Baby Tech company Hubble Connected asked Xan Coffman, founder of MyBaby Sleepology to provide tips to new parents for sleep training.
One of the most common questions asked by new parents is “Should we wait until our baby gets through the 4-month sleep regression to see if we need to sleep train?” Unfortunately, this is the one regression that has no end to it as it is a biological shift in a baby’s sleep. Sixteen weeks+ is a great age to teach babies how to self-soothe and sleep more independently, which will ultimately lead to consolidated nights and long naps for the entire family!
So, What Is the Four-Month Sleep Regression?
All infants experience a shift or regression in their sleep around four months, with significant changes in their sleep patterns and behavior. This is a normal, biological phase in a baby's development, but it can sometimes be challenging for parents.
For one thing, babies may start to wake more frequently during the night and take shorter naps.
At about this age, babies begin to develop more adult-like sleep patterns. They spend less time in deep sleep and more time in lighter, REM sleep, which can mean waking more frequently during the night. Babies also go through a developmental leap, they may become more aware of their surroundings and more easily distracted by noises and other stimuli.
How Can Parents Help Babies Through It?
This can be a tough time for parents to navigate! The team at MyBaby Sleepology works with families worldwide to help them get the sleep they need. To learn more and schedule a free consultation, visit MyBaby Sleepology.
