Your Baby Can Now Sleep Tight Without Much Patting From You

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

Your baby is now ready to take baby steps into the matter of sleeping on his own, without much effot from you. So far, you may have practiced a routine of rocking him to sleep. It’s time to let go of that and pat him to sleep instead; he may create a fuss initially but will eventually learn to sleep on his own.



    What you need to know

    Worried about your baby getting enough sleep? Don’t. Each seven-month-old has different sleep patterns and a few modifications along with some practice will keep your baby healthy and happy!

    Yawning is not the only sign indicating that he’s sleepy. He might turn cranky, unwieldy, or hyperactive. Your baby needs an average of 14 hours of sleep every night along with a couple of naps during the day. Establish precise sleep routines and ensure that he sleeps at the same time every day.

    Avoid waking him up mid-nap unless you absolutely have to. When necessary, coax him awake by rubbing the soles of his feet and the palm of his hand.
