Thinking about why a baby cries beforesleep, any mother first of all will start to suspect at it any indispositions. Still would! There are so many of them, and the baby is so small and defenseless! But let's think without panic, is it really so terrible in reality? Could it be that the screams and reluctance to sleep are not due to the poor health of the crumbs?
Does the baby cry before going to sleep? Komarovsky talks about the rules of preparing for sleep
The most famous doctor of our time claims that a healthy and strong sleep of a child should be ensured by creating a normal environment in the room where the baby sleeps. It implies the following:
- No accumulators of dust in the form of rugs, pads, a huge number of soft toys in the children's room!
- The temperature of the air in the room for sleep should not exceed 20 °, and the humidity, respectively, is 50-70%.
- Heaters, drying the air, and warm things will not help your baby fall asleep, rather, on the contrary, will make his sleep disturbing and heavy.
Only in normal conditions, the baby will calmly fall asleep, not signaling to "dumb" parents about their discomfort.
Why does the child cry before going to sleep? Down with bad habits!
But not only the above factors prevents the baby from sleeping. Perhaps you have taught him to fall asleep only in your arms (or rather, did he accustom you)? Thus, the instinct of the newborn entered into force.
The fact is that his connection with his mother beforeof a certain age is very strong. Without it, the baby does not feel protected. And he can realize this only when he is on his hands and feels something big and warm next to him. And, succumbing to such a provocation, my mother only fixes this instinct more strongly.
In different children, by the way, this need is expressed in different degrees, while sleep on the hands will not be an acute problem, if you do not support the baby in his request.
The main thing is to make sure that the cries before bed areit is the desire to be "safe". It is clear that no pain is not due to the fact that the baby was picked up. If he screams in the crib, and immediately stops talking on his hands, be patient and wait his turbulent emotions, comforting himself with the thought that it will soon pass. But if the toddler taken out of the crib continues to cry, you need to look for other reasons for your child's anxiety.
