Biological Changes after Birth-Sleeping Regression

After 4 months, sleeping pattern permanently changes. Yeah, call it the sleeping regression. What is sleeping regression? A sleeping regression is a biological stage where the sleeping system/circle of your toddler changes after 4 months.

Read this also to know more about 4 months sleep regression.

This does not only happens to 4 months babies but, even in the first weeks of birth it does occur. What are these reasons why all over sudden your child doesn't sleep well at night?

Top 6 Reasons Why Babies Wake Up At Night

6) Unfavorable Temperature

The sleeping conditions of any baby matters. The little ones are not like adults who have adapted to the world's temperature. Remember children have come from a different environment with a different temperature and transforming and soon adapting to the new environment with a new temperature must be a gradual change.

If your toddler wakes up at night after a short nap, then is either the temperature of the sleeping room is too hot or too cold. Just learn how to balance the room temperature for your baby to enjoy the naps!

5) Too Much Daytime Sleeping

Unbalanced sleeping time is the reason sometimes babies wake up. Any parent or guardian must take the initiative to regulate time duration of sleep. In case your child loves to sleep a lot during daytime?

Then, be prepared of awakening up at night because her or his sleeping time has been exhausted. What one needs to emphasize on is the timing of sleep for your baby to have a balanced sleep time during the day and night.

4) Feeling Hungry

Sometimes a hungry child is an angry child. Why the loud cry from your baby at night? The satisfaction level of your baby determines the level her/his comfort. When the child goes to bed early yet not well fed, then s/he must have been awakened by an angry stomach demanding for food. Always have a bottle warmer for these moments!

A limit of satisfaction for your toddler is a priority. Any mother must be in a capacity to identify the level of satisfaction of her toddler since the young always enjoy their sleep after a good meal. A good meal means total combination of both qualities vs. quantity.

3) Wetness

Who doesn't know that wetness brings babies discomfort? The tendency of the toddler to wake up at night can sometimes be caused by humidity. Also, the wetness is the sign of changing the diapers.

The diapers cover when filled, they need to urgently replaced. The delay to change new diapers will bring a lot of discomfort to the baby because the skin always feels irritated by the excretion products and this might keep the baby awake at night.

2) Nightmares

I know how funny it sounds, to just imagine the kind of nightmares toddlers experience. Were you really even aware that babies too undergo nightmares that scare the sleep out of them?

To babies at 12 months plus, they begin to experience nightmares. The moment a baby reaches 4 months, s/he starts to have a normal adult sleeping hours and at 12 months plus, they already start to have an experience of nightmares. These nightmares scare the hell out your toddler hence waking up at night! If this happens to your baby, it would be a great idea to get a co-sleeper for your little one.

1) Sickness

Babies don't talk. The knowledge of feeling sick is biological, and to your child, she might not know how to express herself by saying she is feeling sick verbally. The language of toddlers is full of gestures, and when having digestion problems or shedding of teeth, the babies can be awake at night.

The pain or side effects caused by illness rob babies sleep often. The attack by illness is inevitable and when the toddler succumbs to these conditions, s/he will be awake at night because her sleep has been snatched away by sickness.

To cut the long story short, please allow me to rest my case by saying that, if our sleep is disturbed, then obviously we will stay awake at night. There are numerous reasons why babies wake up at night and the 6 above mentioned reasons, are the key! Thanks for your time reading this article and am sure you have learned.
