5 tips to get parents to lull babies to sleep soundly.
Whatever the means chosen do not ignore the need for security in infants.

Quality of sleep not only affects the baby’s physical development, but also her attitude the next day. Babies who sleep without frequent awakening enough to be more fit and not easy to fret. The benefits can also be perceived mother and father. Sleep quality can be better parents if the baby can sleep soundly through the night. Activities from morning to evening can be lived well.

The problem is, babies often wake up at night not because of hunger or other disorders, but as revealed in his book Sleep Siobhan Stirling, most babies wake up at night because sleep phase change, from deep sleep to light sleep.
Light sleep or REM sleep (rapid eye movement) sleep is a condition characterized by, among others, irregular breathing, the body tends to tense, and eyeballs moving under the eyelids. In this condition, the baby woke from his sleep easy. This type of sleep experienced by infants from age 6-7 months in the womb. Most normal infants in a state of REM sleep.
Conversely, deep sleep or non-REM state is characterized by a very casual, relaxed, lying quietly with the heartbeat and breathing regularly, and almost no dreaming. It’s hard to wake the baby in this phase of sleep.
Babies will experience a phase change from REM sleep to non-REM. Newborns, for example, it will enter a phase of REM sleep, but 20 minutes later through a phase of non-REM sleep. Built during the phase displacement is common. When awakened, the baby may be crying and looking for the mother. Not infrequently, mothers breast-feeding or holding a baby and then many times, of course, interfere with sleep quality. Every few hours, the mother or father should wake up and calm the baby.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE MOST APPROPRIATE
If the baby is often awakened in the middle of the night and parents feel the quality of sleep decreases, it is better to teach your baby to sleep. Actually he can calm yourself and go back asleep after waking moment. Choose the method that best suits you and your child like Stirling has to offer the following:

1. BE COLD
This method is a method of “most violent”. But like the promise of Stirling, this is the most accurate method. Parents may feel the effect within three days. You do this by putting the baby in bed. After saying good night to him, lived alone until she fell asleep by itself.
Most babies will cry so parents disappear from view. But for long, because it does not get a response, the baby will give up and eventually fell asleep. Maybe the baby will cry for long. Frankly, this method is very hard and became a very difficult choice for parents.
* Tip for success:
– Before starting this method, the baby must be safe and comfortable. Consider the state of his bed, clothes, diapers, and other equipment.
– Willingness, patience, and perseverance are the recipe for success of this method.

Tri Novida, Psi. explained, this method is quite risky. Babies may cry for hours because they felt unsafe. Disorders such as spit up, vomit, colic, and choking can make it more uncomfortable and even painful. In addition, in certain infants, this action is felt to be a waiver and it was difficult to get a sense of security. Very likely the child will eventually grow into a “tegaan”, in addition to making it a figure of cowards. This method also requires that babies have their own rooms.

2. CONTROL THE CRIES
This method is widely used in many countries parents and effective enough to calm the baby after a few nights. The principle is similar to the method of unity, ie let the baby cry. Babies also will give up and eventually fell asleep. The difference is, this method gives a time interval that extended gradually. Before the start, parents can decide how long the child will be left to cry, at least one minute. After putting it in bed, say goodnight and leave the little guy. If the baby is still awake, return within a predetermined time period, say 5 minutes. After the baby is inconsolable, left again and back in a longer time, and so on until a parent could leave babies at most 20 minutes.
Do it the next night. Gradually increase the time lag before examining the baby state. For example, do not come back to see your baby before the 10 minutes expire, and then lengthen the time up to a maximum of 25 minutes. On the third night, after 15 minutes of new mothers could see the baby in the crib, then the gap was extended to 30 minutes, and so on.
* Tips for success
– Perform routine four supporters to calm your baby (see box).
– Use a clock or stopwatch to monitor time interval before checking the baby’s room with accuracy.
– To be yourself is not agitated, trying to do fun activities while waiting for the time interval.
– Do not look back if the baby is quiet. The arrival of a baby crying parents just fishing again.
* Comments expert:

* Comments expert:
“This method is more gentle and humane,” said Tri. Mom can control the baby more easily. Sense of security is also maintained because the baby can still see the mother, although somewhat far apart. Parents’ bed and crib may be in one room.

4. GIVE KISS
After putting the baby in bed, say the word and give it a bedtime kiss. Promise to come back and give him a kiss. Step back a few steps before giving a second kiss. If the baby is moving or crying carried ask, do not reprimand, but lay back and give a farewell kiss. After a few days, we will know the amount of kisses and time required.

5. SLOW REVERSE
Lay your baby, and sat beside him until he fell asleep. In the following weeks, slowly Move a little farther from his bed, until finally you do not have to be in the room when the baby is asleep. He’ll probably refuse whenever parents moved from the bedside. If the mother remained calm and resolute, the refusal will expire in just one or two nights.
* Tip for success:
– Do not make eye contact or any activity with the baby. Read the book that he found it hard to draw your attention.
– You can only stay away if the baby has been accustomed to the previous position.
– Adjust the speed to move with the baby’s ability to cope. If he was so anxious to see “movement” you, then bergeserlah little. Conversely, if he is not disturbed, you can speed up the withdrawal.
* Comments expert:

5 THINGS THAT NEED TO BE
Tri revealed, there are some things to consider before the baby is asleep, among them:
1. GIVE FOOD / DRINK ENOUGH
Many babies have trouble falling asleep or frequent waking from sleep because it was not full. Therefore, meet the needs of the baby eat and drink before bed. If their physical needs met, the child no longer wake up in the middle of the night. Noteworthy, in terms of dental health, habits of feeding at night should be stopped after a baby tooth appears (at about age 6 months after the period of exclusive breastfeeding). Instead, give water if he is thirsty or soothe a baby to sleep again.
2. SELECTING THE RIGHT CLOTHES
Choose comfortable clothes to sleep. Adjust size as the baby’s body. Do not be too big but not too small that can make it crowded. Choose a soft material. Comfortable nightgown help babies sleep through the night.
3. CLEAN AGENCY
Body sticky with sweat and dirt after every meal and play easy to make baby’s skin itching that interferes with sleep. Instead, wipe the baby’s body with a wet washcloth before bed. If you need to brush the powder into the folds of his skin and apply oil telon in the abdomen and back. The way it can make the baby comfortable and fast asleep.
4. ARRANGE ROOMS AND ROOM
Set the room atmosphere so comfortable to sleep. These include lighting, ventilation, full color, temperature, and also the state of her crib. You can put a crib in the bedroom, in addition to parents’ bed or in a separate room. Each of these options has advantages and disadvantages. If the baby is often restless and wake up, prop his side with a small pillow or blanket bundle (can also soft towel) so that the baby feels there is guarding. Avoid also the noise that makes it easy to awake.
Do not use air freshener and mosquito repellent drug that could make it crowded. Mosquitoes do not often make babies sleep soundly. Use a mosquito net that can protect infants against mosquitoes.
5. WASTE WATER BEDTIME
Wet and dirty trousers could disturb sleeping infants. Therefore, keep the baby’s bowel movements (BAB) or urine (BAK) before bed. Granted, this does not guarantee the baby’s bowel and bladder not at night, because it is often influenced by whether or not baby pee drinks and food intake, as well as various other factors. But at least, the baby used to set the biological clock, including bowel and bladder. Well, so the baby can stay “dry” do not get used to give him milk when he wakes up at night or use pospak. Nutritional needs of infants 6 months or older should be met in the morning until 1-2 hours before bed at night alone.
