how to get a baby to sleep through the night through routines

When you know you will have baby, your life will be filled with joy. You and your partner start to décor a room to welcome your baby. You then buy all the nice clothing and toys for your baby. It is just like heaven on earth.


9 months later, the situation turns 180 degree around. Your baby is waking up every 2 hours for 24 hours 7 days. Well, first 5 days or may be first two weeks is fine for you and your partner. Because both of you have been committed to love your baby. But after two weeks, both of you started to feel so depressed. You are so extremely exhausted. How to get a baby to sleep through the night? I believe you will feel that is a question with no answer.

Dear new parents. Baby is human and they do sleep. Your frustration is simply because you don’t know what happen, why, you don’t know what to expect and most importantly you have no idea what to do. All you need is just one simple understanding to open up your mind. In this article you will learn how to get a baby to sleep through the night in general term. I would say this could be the basic you need to know.

How long does baby sleep in general?

Babies do sleep. Your baby will need lots of sleep, but he won't stay asleep for more than three hours or four hours at a time in her first few months. He needs to wake regularly so that he can top up her tummy, so be ready for some interrupted nights. He may feed almost every 2 hours especially during growth spurt. When babies get older, they will sleep longer.

Babies are different one to another. Below are the conditions in general and can be used as a basic so you will know what to expect.


 Total Sleep (Hours)

 Night Time Sleep (Hours)

 Nap Time (Hours)

 Newborn - 2 months 16-18  8-9 7-9 (3-5 naps)
2-4 months 14-16 9-10 4-5 (3 naps)
4-6 months 14-15 10 4-5 (2-3 naps)
6-9 months 14 10-11 3-4 (2 naps)
9-12 months 14 10-12 2-3 (2 naps)
12-18 months 13-14 11-12 2-3 (1-2 naps)
18 months - 2 years 13-14 11 2 (1 nap)
2-3 years 12-14 10-11 1-2 (1 nap)
3-5 years  11-13 10-11 0-1 (1 nap and usually stop by age of 5 years old)
5-12 years 10-11 10-11 no longer needed


Babies sleep with no regard for what time it is because they don’t know the difference between day and night yet. It means that your baby’s wide-awake time may be from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m.

In general you can start to follow a set pattern every night once your baby is about three months old. He may even sleep through the night (for about 6 hours stretch) from around six months. This is allowing you to get more sleep again.


So, how to get a baby to sleep through the night?

What is the secret?
