My baby is a lola. She has a mind of her own, I remember that we cannot make her sleep unless she is sleepy.
You cannot make her do something that she doesn't like, she will definitely tell you in her cries, through her arms or eyes.
I read in a baby milestone that at six months the baby will learn to sleep through the night,
Kiara was sleeping through the night at week 4, we never had a problem with her waking up in the middle of the night. I wish I could make that excuse at work but she never did cost us any lack of sleep until now she is sleeping through the night compared to her cousin Miko who is 8 months old who wakes up at 3am and again at 5pm. Kiara sleeps between 7 to 8 and wakes up occasionally at night looking for my breast and then wakes up at 6am.
In a study on Asian babies, they sleep on the average of 9 hours and 45 minutes, Kiara's sleep is above average similar to the western babies. sleep is very important in a baby and the amount of sleep is related to a grumpy or happy baby during the day. Just like adults who lack sleep they wake up grumpy and irritated during the day.
I am so glad to have a baby like Kaira, she is an angel.
