A Guide to Baby’s First Year of Sleep

In the first year, aligning yourself with your baby's sleep needs can be overwhelming, especially if you're missing out on all the important ZZZs yourself. This first year sleep guide will give you the rest you need and help your baby sleep soundly like a baby. If your little one has struggled, know that you are not alone. Many babies just need a little guidance to get it right.

Newborn to 3 Months

Your baby's schedule is likely to be inconsistent in the first few weeks of life. Preventing your baby from fatigue is the key to better sleep in newborns. Most newborns cannot stay awake for even an hour before they need to go back to sleep, and short naps often last up to six months. You can take sleep coaching newborn to give a better sleep pattern for your baby.

4 to 6 Months

If your baby starts sleeping longer at night but now seems to be reducing to shorter periods, he is most likely between 4 and 6 months old. You are not alone and it is very common in 4 months of sleep. 

7 to 9 months

Sleep and feeding schedules are now possible for most babies. An example of a schedule is: wake up at 7 am, nap at 9 am, 1 pm and 4 pm, 7 pm. sleeping time. To set the right schedule for your baby, you need to base it on past trends (e.g. not all babies sleep 12 hours). 

10 to 12 months

Most babies sleep through the night at this age, but few need food to survive. More wakes at night than this and you may have to encourage your baby to fall asleep on his own.
