Doesn’t fall asleep well

08/06/20 12:59

Hello, I have a two-month-old girl, she’s doing really well, I breastfeed, we have a little problem with farts but I want to ask about something else. Every night before she falls asleep, she always almost drops off, and then her eyes open wide and she begins to twitch and breathe in fits and wave her hands and her eyes flit around the room, like a little nutter. This has repeated 6 times in a row. Is it possible that this is a sign of a neurological problem? It doesn’t seem completely normal to me prior to sleeping and I’ve tried not overtaxing her during the day so that she doesn’t have a heavy head in the evening, etc ... and it’s the same every night, as though she’s gone mad :( We’ve tried giving her Baby Calm drops, but to no avail :/ Thank you for your help.

Hello, this does not necessarily mean a neurological problem. It is possible that your daughter is disturbed whilst falling asleep which scares her and then she reacts in this manner, it is also possible that if she sleeps less during the day, or does not sleep enough and wakes up more often, she may be fatigued which escalates into overtiredness in the evening before she falls asleep, so it takes longer and she reacts this way. Another possibility is that the neurological system is still evolving at this age and is immature and, for example, deals with many perceptions in this way. Try to eliminate all disturbing sounds, air the room well before going to bed, remove all electronics, including mobile phones, from around the cot, introduce a regime and a certain ritual before going to bed, if you cannot, try to put her to sleep at about the same time, leave enough time before putting her to bed so that you and she are not stressed that it is late and she has to go to bed right away, etc. If the condition persists or worsens, consult it with her paediatrician. You can also try to record it on video and then show it to the paediatrician.

Tummy ache

08/06/20 12:49

Hello, my son of 3 months is constantly waking up crying and whining. He writhes like a snake and frantically kicks his legs. After a while, he starts farting a lot and falls asleep again. From one month, he’s been on milk formula Hipp biocombiotik 170ml 7 times a day and 8 drops of Espumisan in each bottle. 5 drops of Biogaia every morning. Is it possible to help him somehow so that he doesn’t fart so much and his tummy doesn’t hurt? We exercise his legs before every meal, we put a warming cushion and a Terry on his tum, we give him a little bit of fennel tea, but nothing helps. Thank you for your reply.

Hello, apart from carrying on with what you are already doing, try to wind your son as much as you can after each feeding. After burping, you can put the baby in the “tiger in the tree” position - he lies with his stomach on your forearm, legs and arms free, the head rests on your elbow crease. Or put him in the “cradle” position - lean its back against your chest and crouch and gently pull its legs towards the abdomen. You can give him a gentle massage of the abdomen in a circular motion in a clockwise direction - not immediately after a meal, so that your son does not start vomiting. Put him on his belly more. A rectal tube can also be used for a while if absolutely necessary. If the problems with meteorism persist, you could also change the milk formula, but I would recommend you do so only after arranging with your son's paediatrician. For most children, these problems usually diminish or subside around the age of 4 months, but it is very individual.

Hello, yes, you can give your daughter a smaller but not too high pillow to sleep on.

Breastfeeding and sleep

08/06/20 12:44

Hello, I have a 2-week-old son who is doing well, he is fully breastfed. During the day I breastfeed every 3 hours, but now he’s started taking a break at night between breastfeeding, sometimes for up to 6 hours, should I let him sleep and feed him when he wakes up, or should I wake him up?

Hello, although it is now recommended to breastfeed upon request, your son is still small and a 6-hour break at night could be very long for him and he could start gaining less weight, so I would recommend that you do not take breaks for longer than 3 hours at night. During the day breastfeeding every 3 hours is fine.

Insomnia

08/06/20 12:42

Hello, I’d like to ask. After being away for almost a month our 13 month-old son hardly wants to sleep at all, both at night and during the day, is there anything I can do to help him to calm down completely or something? He’s always crying and gets angry. When he was away he slept wonderfully, all night and twice during the day, sometimes for 3 hours. He was a good boy and played. Thank you

Hello, if you have been at a place where there is a large time difference for the baby, it may take a while for the baby to cope with this difference internally. Try to put him to bed as soon as you think he feels tired, if possible. Don’t get him overtired. Try to do a sleeping ritual together and try to keep to it at least until he starts sleeping again. If he sleeps in the cot, put your hand through the cot and stroke him, tickle, sing, tell him a fairy tale, etc. If he sleeps with you in bed, lie down with him and put him to sleep, again, you can stroke him, etc. It is possible that he wants to be with you and feel your proximity and feel safe. Try to put him to bed at roughly the same time every night as much as possible. Try to limit all things that could disturb him - when sleeping, darken the room, close the door, the TV should be off, but also, for example, leave the mobile phone in the next room. Allow enough time to fall asleep. If you yourself are stressed, try to get rid of it, because your child will feel it, and then it is harder to get them to sleep. If he does not drink milk at night, give him lemon balm or chamomile tea. If it takes longer and doesn’t improve or even worsens, see your child's paediatrician to rule out any medical cause of the problem.
