Yes, at nighttime, he sleeps in a dim room. He's 5 weeks now and it seems that he's starting to get what nighttime is.... At least i think he is. Tho, sometimes he would get fussy before sleeping.
The thing is, he would tend to always fall asleep after feeding (daytime or nighttime). Sometimes, though, he would stay awake more at night when he misses a daytime nap. I still dont get his sleep pattern and it equates to sleepless nights for me.
Just out curiosity, is it generally pretty quiet in the room at night?
At only a month old sleepless nights (or days) are pretty much part of the deal. :)
Yes, it is quiet in the room at night. During daytime, we dont go out of our way to tiptoe around him when he sleeps. I would like him to sleep longer during nighttime. He tends to sleep longer during daytime.
There is the potential that maybe it's just too quiet in the room. I would try a white noise maker to use during nap/bed times to see if that has any positive impact. Or a white noise app, either way.
Well, there's the hum of the electric fan.
I would start by downloading a white noise app (if you have a smart phone) and using it whenever your little one naps and sleeps. Use that in conjunction with my original tips and see if it makes a difference.
Good point about eye contact and talking. This is something else we used to keep to a bare minimum during the night time hours and was very helpful. We will still do this with our nine month old.
