But what makes the rules sleeping and eating schedule for newborns? Really we do not need to set a rigid schedule for newborns?
"Newborns indeed need frequent breastfeeding and has its own pattern," said Dr. Karen Sadler, a pediatrician in Boston, Massachusetts. "During the first four months, most babies have had a fixed feeding rhythms and sleep all night. Therefore, the task of parents who have to specify the schedule."
Dr. Gregory Germain, a pediatrician at Children's Hospital at Yale-New Haven in Connecticut, US, adding, "Do you have to make your baby is hungry first to wait two hours for the next feeding, only to fit the schedule you made? "
He said the new scheduling as it actually can be done effectively in older infants. "Babies usually have hours of breastfeeding and more regular sleep schedule only during the first six months, but many were up to nine months."
Should woken up?
When the baby is six months old and above, you should also pay attention to the amount of sleep during the day. For example, the old adage says, never to wake the baby who was fast asleep. However, a number of pediatricians in the modern era it emphasizes, the baby should not nap more than 1.5 hours or 2 hours during the day.
"You might see your baby sleeping soundly. But if his already too long, you should wake up from sleep in the daytime," advises Dr. Robert Jacobson, chairman and professor of pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA. "The way it is quite effectively done so that the baby does not sleep too late. "
Dr. Jacobson also said, you do not need while feeding the baby when it is time he was napping. "You have to pay attention to the intake of milk every two hours, especially if still drinking milk. If the baby is drinking formula, you have to feed it every three to four hours.
According to him, if done routinely in this way not only will make the baby sleep soundly in the day and night, but also makes the baby get good nutrition. So the quality of sleep at night would be very good. TEMPAT
