Why Your Baby is Missing Sound Sleep?

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Varanasi
Why Your Baby is Missing Sound Sleep?

When you hold your new born in your arms for the first time, you will count him or her as the greatest blessing of your life. This is also the time when you are burdened with the responsibilities of another human. The sleep patterns in new-borns are erratic and you will never see them follow any pattern as such. They sleep off just about any time of the day and you will not see any pattern until about your angel is about 6 to 7 weeks old. After that age, they get quite adaptable and you will be able to get him or her adapted to certain patterns. This will make things very easy for you and your partner.

So why won’t your baby sleep?

1. Your baby is too excited to fall asleep

Babies are a powerhouse of energy. Activities like tossing him in the air or giving him an exciting bath full of fun and frolic will probably do the opposite of winding him down. It will make him more excited and he will not want to go to bed thinking he would miss out on the other fun activities that are in store for him.

Solution: Replace the fun tickles with other activities like comforting massages or story time and lullabies. Dim the lights, cosy up the room. Make it a routine and you will find your baby easing into a deep slumber in no time.

2. Your baby is too sensitive to the external or internal environment

Every baby is not a sound sleeper. Some babies may jolt awake with just a simple nod, others may dose off amidst noise and screams as well. If your baby is of the first kind, then you may face a bunch of troubles to keep your baby calm and cosy. You may bother your baby’s sleep if your phone starts to ring around her or by the constant honking of cars outside.

Solution: Keep her surroundings as warm and comfortable as possible. Keep her in a room that is away from the bustling noise of the cars, if possible or sound proof her room. Start by dimming the lights and getting her comfortable clothes that will keep her free when she is sleeping. Keep her sheets and pillows clean and ensure they do not remain wet.

3. Your baby snacks in the middle of the night

As it was mentioned before, babies have erratic schedules. They can get hungry or cranky just about any time of the day. Mid-night snacking is probably numero uno reason as to why your baby will not fall asleep at night. If you feed your baby to sleep every time, he or she might associate it with nursing.

Solution: It is okay to train your baby to comfort itself in the middle of the night. Whenever it may think it is hungry, he or she will cry and expect you to nurse him to sleep. Put him in the nursery when he is relatively sleepy to allow him to fall asleep all by himself. You may stand by till he does, but do not swaddle him. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

Obeserv him if he shows any behavioural abnormalities or a paralysis of part or whole limb, if he does not show anything, then the haemorrhage is extracranial. In that case, apply heparin gel locally to resolve haematoma early.

Best Tips For Tackling ADHD In Kids!

Best Tips For Tackling ADHD In Kids!

ADHD is one of the commonest behavioral disorders that are found in most school going kids. In fact, this kind of trouble might affect kid's ability quite adversely. There are a few signs with the help of which ADHD in kids can be easily detected. Some of the commonest ones are emotional turmoil, unfinished tasks, squirm and fidget, low focus, careless mistakes and other related ones. 

Both interpersonal relationship and schooling success can be hampered to a great extent with this kind of mental disorder. This is why the kids facing the mentioned signs need to be thoroughly diagnosed medically so that the doctors can recommend best treatments that can provide the fastest recovery and that too safely and easily. 

Best tips for tackling ADHD in kids:

  1. Setting behavior limits: If you want your kids learn how to lead a disciplined life, then appropriate behavioral limits have to be clearly established for the key behaviors that are expected from them. 

  2. Anger management - You must control your child's anger actively. Otherwise, it will be difficult to treat ADHD, effectively. For anger management, several techniques can be used, but they must be selected after discussion with the mental health worker.

  3. Setting pressure free routine structure - Preparation of sensible routines and scheduled charts is an important step towards ADHD management. However, the same should not become a pressure for the child. Hence the child's suggestions and interests should be kept in mind while preparing a schedule. 

  4. Advocating child - Advocating your child is very much required maintaining a healthy balance for a child suffering from ADHD. Talking about the child’s interests brings the family members closer to the child. In the course of such an interaction, less strictness brings about more meaningful interactions. Typically, a family member or a tutor should be involved in this process. 

  5. Acquiring knowledge about ADHD - Both parents and kids should have the required knowledge for ADHD. Having a proper knowledge will not only aid the parents in early recognition of symptoms and signs, but also in understanding and implementing necessary treatments.

  6. Being persistent - One of the basic principles of behavior therapy is that the interventional technique has to be persistent. The instruction to be given by parents, the application of incentive or punishment based techniques need to happen repeatedly to have a persistent effect on the child. But it is always important to consult a specialist/psychiatrist if you observe that your child’s maladaptive behavior is not changing in spite of your efforts.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My baby boy who is now 11 months old, was delivered premature by 40 days. Until 6 months, he had been gaining weight regularly and weighed nearly 6 kgs, but henceforth, he gained only 300 gms in the next 5 months. The neonatologist/ paediatrician advised us to give him all sorts of food that we eat. But, my child does not eat all the food readily. My wife has less milk in her due to which our baby is not getting sufficient milk from the breast feeding. He does not like the supplement NAN PRO- 2 that we give him. He is given HEMSI-PD and ULTRA D3 drops as advised by the paediat. Tooth have not shown up for my child. He manages to make a few sounds of a few words in his attempt to say the words. Kindly advice on the overall growth of my child and what food/ supplements could speed up his growth.

Improper nutrition will lower your child's ability to fight infection. A 10 month old child needs vitamins, iron and proteins which cannot be provided by mother's milk alone. Avoid giving him ice creams, cold drinks etc give him dalia/rice khicdi with dal, vegetables and curd. Give suji/rice kheer, custard, yogurt. Give him fruits specially banana, apple, anar and other seasonal fruits he can now have 3proper meals. Try variety of things without being disheartened. Parenting is a tough job. All the best.
