Welcome again to our baby sleep guide. As your baby grows and develops, their sleep needs will change too. Between 6 and 12 months, your baby will gradually need less daytime sleep and more night-time sleep.
Tip 1: Encourage Daytime Feeding
By encouraging more daytime feeds, you can reduce the likelihood of your baby waking up hungry at night.
Tip 2: Foster a Sleep-friendly Environment
Ensure the room is dark and the temperature is comfortable. A white noise machine can also be helpful to drown out disruptive noises.
Tip 3: Be Mindful of Teething
Teething can disrupt your baby's sleep. Look out for signs of teething and manage it accordingly with teething rings or gels, if necessary.
Tip 4: Encourage Independent Sleeping
Continue to promote self-soothing and independent sleep to ensure your baby can resettle themselves if they wake at night.
With these baby sleep tips in your arsenal, you'll be able to better manage your growing baby's changing sleep needs.
