Hi all.. My son is 2 months old.. He sleeps throughout the day & Don't sleep at night. I try my level best to keep him awake in the day but nothing helps. How can I change his sleeping pattern so that he can start Sleeping in nights. Or how much more time he will take to develop a pattern for night? Appreciate your response.

Hi Sonia. Relax! And welcome to this amazing world of motherhood! Myth follows that if ur baby was born during night hours then he sleeps mostly during day and vice versa. I dont know if it cent percent true or not but initial 3 months, babies do not fix up on a schedule. Later gradually when they get big and their activities will start, like crawling, sitting, playing, walking, that makes them tired and that helps them to sleep during day time. Still there can be ways out. Just try givung him a nice massage before bedtime. This helped my son, so sharing my experience. Massage with a warm water sponge. Or else, if u want him to listen to some religious tunes like gayatri mantra, that sets the mood too. Giving a bath helps too but conservative oldies at home may not allow u to do so in the evening hours. But still, if its possible, try it out.. Every baby is an individual. My son is 10 months old and he took his own pretty time to get set.. And so will your son too. I m sure this helps.
