Home Remedy for a Sleepless Baby

Although there doesn't seem to be many remedies for a sleepless infant, there are many things you can try doing that might aid in bringing your baby to sleep.

Try rocking your infant while standing. Add some rhythmic "shushing" in there in order to remind you infant of the womb. Some babies like it when they are hummed a particular song. Make sure all types of distractions are mitigated. If you are the one nursing try handing off your infant to your spouse in order to not entice the baby into staying awake in hope of getting a snack. If all else fails go for a walk.
