Nursing 6 Month old to Sleep

6-9 Month Baby Sleep Guide
October 16, 2014 – 01:37 pm

If your baby is in the 6-9 month age range one of two things is happening:

Things are getting dramatically better!

Your baby is taking longer more predictable naps, you’re down to 0-1 feedings at night, you’re no longer wearing flannel PJ pants to the grocery, and you’re reading enough to show your face at your monthly book club meetings. WOO HOO!

Things are bad or possibly getting even worse!

Your baby is taking short unpredictable naps, bedtime is a dreaded chore, and you’re up so often at night you wish you could go back to the newborn phase because that was easier. (If so keep reading!)

You’re probably done swaddling your bigger baby but some older babies still need to be swaddled although I promise you you’re very close to being done with wrapping up your baby Houdini. You’ll want to continue to use loud white noise and work hard to make sure you aren’t keeping baby awake too long. Your 6-9 month old baby is hopefully taking somewhat longer and more regular naps (check out Baby Sleep What is Normal for more details on this). Most babies at this age are napping ~3 times a day. The first 2 naps are serious where the 3rd nap (which falls in the late afternoon/early evening) is generally more of a cat nap.

teaching baby to fall asleep You can no longer nurse, rock, pat, etc your older baby to sleep. If your 6-9 month old baby is sleeping poorly THIS is the problem. It’s not the teething, growth spurts, wonder weeks, learning to roll over, or any of those other changes that make parenting an older baby so exciting. The problem is that they haven’t yet learned how to fall asleep on their own.

How much should a 6 month old puppy sleep?

Generally, sleeping about 16-18 hours per day is considered normal, but this can vary depending on size, breed, level of activity and the amount of exercise/play they get throughout the day. Dogs who are regularly exercised tend to sleep better, and more regularly.
If your dog is sleeping almost all of the time (ie. Waking up only to eat, drink and poop) they may be at risk of having worms. If you think this is the case, take them to the vet to get worming medication (this should have been done by 6 months already!).

Co sleepers, how can I get my 6 month old to fall asleep in his crib without nursing to sleep? | Yahoo Answers

i breastfeed and also co slept with my daughter, shes almost 9 months and still needs to nurse to fall asleep, its a habit i guess, lol..but i dont mind,( she wont take pacifiers) i do put her in her crib now, so she does sleep in there for half of the night, but the other half she sleeps with me, just as soon as you are done feeding her, just lay her gently in her crib, until her next feeding and do it again, it will get easier...my daughter never stays up when she wants her middle of the night feeding, we got her on a scheduale when she was 2 months old, =] good luck and dont give up
