3 Easy Sleep Training Tips
Is your Infant not sleeping through the night? It can be very hard on a family when you have an infant waking up 2-4 times a night. Mom, dad, siblings and baby all become exhausted and irritated. A lack of sleep affects everyone in the household. Get more sleep for you and your family. These 3 tips can help you and your baby sleep through the night.
Make the nursery dark.
Use black out curtains, and cover all light in the room. Light from windows, underneath the door, humidifier light, monitor light, firearm light, cover it with a piece of tape. Make the room pitch black.
If you need to go into the nursery at night, use a red light. Less stimulating for an infant. This creates a womb like feel for the baby, and creates a sleep environment that won’t simulate baby if they wake in middle of night. Sleep training a child is hard, blacking out the room will make it easier for baby to continue sleeping.
White noise machine
When sleep training an infant a white noise machine on ocean or rain can be very helpful. You want the waves noises to be loud. You want it to drown out any noise going on outside the nursery room. Make sure to cover the lights on white noise machine.
Sleep training success doubles when creating a bedtime routine. Make a bedtime routine of 7 things/ habits. Examples: Change diaper, sing a song, lavender lotion, read books, pajamas, etc. 7 things you want to do before baby goes to sleep for the night. Start night time routine 30 minutes prior to bedtime every night.

The hardest part about traveling with an infant or child is the fear of others being upset they may have to listen to a screaming kid the whole flight. Not knowing if your babies ears hurt. How do we ease our minds when traveling with a kid? We take a few important steps.
Surprisingly some kids do shockingly well. It can be exciting for a child. Its new, its fun, its distracting, and its a lot of attention from strangers.
Airlines allow families to board first. Get on the flight early and get snacks, milk, books, coloring books out to have ready when your child needs some distractions.
Time the flight around nap time.
Be sure to do all the same cues you use for nap time at home. Blanket, sound machine (headphones), warm milk, read a book. Whatever your routine is at home, try to mimic it on the plane.
Wear your baby on the plane.
If your infant is small enough to wear on the plane, it is advised to do so. If your child is older they have rolling, traveling car seats you can push or pull the child in. Strollers can be taken to the end of the gate as well.
Give nearby passengers goodie bags.
Pinterest has cute ideas on giving little goodie bags with ear plugs, candy and a little note apologizing if the kids are loud. If your kid(s) are old enough have them pass them out to a few people around them. This reminds the passengers how cute your kids are and that they are in fact children.
Carseats are considered “damaged”
after one use of travel. This is only if you check the car seat. You may want to look into renting a carseat if you are renting a vehicle. Lugging around a carseat can be a lot of work. If you can rent or use a family members, do so.
Toys, books, movies and food.
Make sure you have plenty of toys, movies, books and food for your little one. Distraction is key. Don’t forget their favorite blanket. Headphones can be helpful with noises. Make sure baby drinks while airplane is taking off and landing. This will help his hers pop.

How to prevent the bad germs getting into your child’s mouth.
Now a days our kids know how to use our phones, tablets, and computers better than we do. It is no surprise to see a child at a restaurant or play area with their hands attached to a phone, tablet or gameboy. That is how they are being educated and playing in todays society.
We also know kids don’t wash their dirty little hands like they should. Have you ever asked a toddler if they washed their hands after going potty? The answer is usually “yes” even though you know very well that little stinker did not wash their hands.
Dawipez has been created to help keep our kids safe from germs and bacteria that are created very quickly on our electronic devices. Easy to use and at your finger tips. Parents often keep them in the diaper bag or car for easy access and reminding. Don’t let your childs every day use make them sick. A healthier child, a healthier you, a healthier life.

When to Start
As a new parent, you’ve had an exhausting couple of months – up at all hours of the night, feeding and caring for your newborn. It’s been tough yet wonderful, but it’s time for your baby to start sleeping through the night, so you can, too.
At about 3 to 5 months or at 10 to 12 pounds, your baby will be ready for sleep training – gradually teaching him or her to sleep longer periods of time through the night.
Sleep training can be tricky, especially when you, yourself are exhausted.
This is where Night Owl Nanny Care steps in – guiding you and helping you train your baby to make sleeping through the night an established routine.
We understand that sleep training your baby is no easy task, especially for new parents. Which is why we offer top of the line service to sleep train and care for your baby while you sleep soundly. This leaves you well rested the next day, and ready to care for your little one and spend quality time with each other.
Are you located outside of Colorado? Not a problem. We can consult with you via Facetime or video chat, for an expert assessment of the nursery and to go over sleep training methods with you, so you can have the confidence to do it on your own.
You can then contact us at any time during a 30 day period to discuss how the nights are going, what needs to be changed, or to ask any questions you may have during the sleep training. You will always have the help you need, when you need it.
No matter where you are located, we are dedicated to help you and your baby to better sleep, and an improved quality of life.
