5 Free and Easy Ways to Reduce Sleep Regression


Hey there, tired parents!

If you've been wondering why your baby suddenly isn't sleeping as well as they used to, you're not alone.

This common bump in the road is known as 'sleep regression', and it can leave both you and your little one feeling restless.

But don't worry, we've got some comforting news — there are simple, tried-and-tested ways to ease sleep regression, and we’re here to share them with you.


What is Sleep Regression?

Before we dive into solutions, let's talk about what sleep regression actually is.

Sleep regression can occur at various stages in a baby’s first year and beyond. It's when a baby or toddler who has been sleeping well suddenly starts waking up frequently at night or refuses to nap during the day.

While it can be due to growth spurts, developmental leaps, or just changes in sleep patterns, understanding it is the first step towards taming those restless nights.


5 Free Ways to Reduce Sleep Regression:

  1. Establish a Bedtime Routine: Like us, babies thrive on routine. A consistent bedtime ritual can work wonders, signaling to your baby that it's time to wind down.

  2. Create a Sleep-Friendly Environment: A cool, dark, and quiet room is key to promoting sleep. Blackout curtains and a consistent room temperature can help create the ideal sleeping atmosphere.

  3. White Noise or Lullaby: The hum of a fan or a white noise app (or YouTube clip on repeat) can drown out the jarring sounds of a busy household or noisy neighborhood, soothing your baby into sleep. Our favorite clip is here by John McClung. He also has mesmerizing chalk drawings to watch and calm down before bed.

  4. Optimized Nap Schedule: Too much or too little daytime sleep can affect nighttime rest. Finding the sweet spot for naps is crucial. Remember, each child is different, there is no set schedule (unfortunately) that suits everyone.

  5. Learn Your Baby’s Sleep Cues: Watch for signs of sleepiness like rubbing eyes or yawning. Putting your baby down to sleep as soon as they're tired, but not overtired, can make a difference. Including a comfort blanket or toy here is a great trigger that it is time to snuggle in and drift off to sleep.
