During the fourth month of life, the time spent awake is longer for the baby. After all, there’s a lot to do and discover, right? Consequently, nightly sleep becomes more regular – some children, during this phase, can sleep up to nine hours without issues. There’s even some who can sleep for up to 11 consecutive hours – each case is different. Daytime naps, however, are still important. Don’t try to skip them or stop the baby from sleeping after lunchtime if they feel like it. The most important thing is to create a sleep pattern at night, teaching your child to go to sleep on their own inside the crib. A good way to help them get a good, restful night’s sleep is by placing them in bed as soon as they show the first signs of fatigue, where they’ll grunt or cry. Stay by their side, saying soothing and calming things or singing a bedtime song, until they calm down.
