How to Get Your Newborn Back to Sleep In the Middle of the Night

Sleeping Newborn Baby In Mother's Arms

Before you panic into thinking you will never again experience more than two hours of sleep, take a breath and relax for a moment. Babies, especially newborns, wake regularly, but with the right approach this can be minimised. At the very least your baby can learn to drift back to sleep without your help.

Here’s how…

1. Wait

The first step in getting your baby to fall back to sleep is to wait a few moments before going to their aid. Listen on the baby monitor and if the whimpering starts to become more frantic, go to their side before it becomes a full on wail. Timing is key here – if you’re too early you will teach them that you’ll come running the moment you hear a noise but if you leave it too late, their cries will have stimulated them into official awake mode.

When going to your baby, refrain from turning on the light and try not to make eye contact. Place your hand on their tummy and try patting them back to sleep without talk, singing or any other sound. If your baby quiets, wait a few minutes before sneaking back out of the room.

2. Consider the sleep aid

One of the most common reasons why babies call out to their parents in the night is because of a pacifier. Yes, pacifiers may help when putting baby to sleep, but if they lose it during the night they don’t possess the fine motor skills to put it back in. If this is becoming a problem you may need to consider saying goodbye to the pacifier.

3. Play with white noise

Some babies sleep so gently that the slightest sound will wake them. If this is the case, you may wish to play white noise sounds which act to mask sudden sounds and help cue sleep. Incorporating this as part of your baby’s sleep routine can take some of the pressure off you to soothe.

4. Keep soothing time short

If you must pick up your baby for soothing, keep it short and sweet or you may confuse them into thinking it’s playtime. It’s important to highlight when it is and isn’t appropriate for play, and walking away from play instead of interacting with your child is one way to do this.

5. Assist the sibling instead

Not running to your baby in the night is difficult when their cries risk waking a sibling, but running to them can enforce bad habits. Consider preparing the sibling in advance by explaining “they’re just learning to sleep at night”, and instead of trying to quieten baby when they wake, try soothing the sibling back to sleep instead.
