Why Do Babies Wake Up Early?

Many new parents find themselves wondering why their babies wake up so early in the morning. After all, they would love nothing more than to sleep in on their days off from work. However, there are a few reasons why babies tend to wake up early. First of all, babies have shorter sleep cycles than adults. This means that they wake up more often during the night, and as a result, they are more likely to be awake when morning comes.

Additionally, babies’ bodies are not used to producing the hormone melatonin, which helps adults to sleep. Finally, light is a cue for our bodies to wake up, and babies’ eyes are more sensitive to light than adults’ eyes. For these reasons, it is not surprising that babies tend to wake up early in the morning. However, there are a few things that parents can do to help their babies sleep later in the morning.

For example, they can try to create a dark environment for their baby to sleep in or give them a feed before they go to bed. By taking these steps, parents can help their babies get the rest that they need.

Some Ways To Help Baby Sleep Through The Night

If you have a baby who is waking up too early, there are a few things that you can do to help them sleep through the night. One thing that you can do is to make sure that they are getting enough daytime sleep. Babies need to get around 12 hours of sleep during the day. If they are not getting enough daytime sleep, they will be more likely to wake up during the night.

Another thing that you can do to help your baby sleep through the night is to establish a bedtime routine. A bedtime routine can help to cue your baby’s body that it is time for sleep. A bedtime routine might include a bath, a story, and some quiet time before bed.

If your baby is still waking up too early, there are a few other things that you can try. One thing that you can do is to move their bedtime earlier. If your baby’s usual bedtime is around eight or nine pm, you can try moving it to seven or eight pm. Another thing that you can do is to make sure that their bedroom is dark and quiet. You can also try using a white noise machine to help them sleep.

If you have tried all of these things and your baby is still waking up too early, it might be time to talk to your doctor. There could be an underlying medical condition that is causing your baby to wake up early. If this is the case, your doctor will be able to help you find a solution.

Conclusion: Patience

To summarize everything, though parents may not want to hear it, the fact is that babies wake up early because they need to. Their little bodies are growing and changing so rapidly that they require frequent feedings and diaper changes. In addition, they are still adjusting to the world outside the womb and need plenty of time to explore and learn.

Though it can be frustrating for parents, early wake-ups are a normal part of infancy. So try to get some extra rest when you can and be grateful that your baby is healthy and thriving.
