Baby Sleep Problems: 4-Month-Old Waking at Night

Have baby sleep questions about schedules? Maybe you’re wondering how to get baby to sleep through the night? You’re not alone. Recently I got an email with a baby sleep question from Tara, mom of a 4-month-old baby girl who is waking up at night after sleeping for only 30-45 minutes and needing lots of soothing and nursing to go back to sleep. This is one of the most common baby sleep problems, Tara! In fact, many moms do say their babies go through a 4 month sleep regression. In this video I talk about a few baby sleep tips that have worked with my five babies.

How to Get Baby To Sleep

In my view, you have to look at your baby’s sleeping and feeding schedule as a whole to make sure she’s well-rested and well-fed, which is essential if she will be able to self-soothe back to sleep. I also think it’s especially important to make sure that your baby is completely full at that last feeding before bedtime, gets a nice burp and is rejecting more milk.

For Tara, I would recommend that you check out my sample feeding and sleeping schedules for a 4 to 6-month-old baby below. And keep me posted!

If you have advice for Tara or a question about babies and sleep, post it in the comments.
