my baby is 2 weeks old.
since yesterday i realize my baby while sleeping will suddenly shock and cry loudly intermittenly.
Have fed her enough, check her diapers.
can some1 enlighten me?
yes, in middle of sleep, sudden shock, then cried loudly...
Did you swaddle her? Swaddling might help....tht time my son too. Or some pple like my mum say to give "jin feng san" then won't shock....
lack of te feel of secure is it ??
any noise around the room your child sleeping?
mayb can play some songs that you give your child to listen while still in your stomach... or put some pillow near to your child, let your child feel secure...
i tried all of above before, doesnt help.
Did anything or anyone scare him?? & also sometime can be colic... is every night? or sometime only? maybe is bad dream...
Babies have Moro reflex or startle reflex (flying arms & legs), some up to 6 months old. Moro reflex
My boy had very strong Moros reflex, so could not sleep well. These helped him:
- babywearing in a sarong sling
- sleeping in a motion bed (or sarong)
