Baby wakes up from sleep every hour, know the reason for baby’s repeated waking up
Like most parents, you may be perplexed as to why your baby wakes up frequently during the night. Trying to put the little one back to sleep every time he wakes up during the night usually becomes tiresome for every parent. Although it is common for young children to wake up frequently, parents are often perplexed as to why their child wakes up every hour or so. Will know from Dr. Amit Gupta, Senior Pediatrician and Neonatologist, Motherhood Hospital, Noida, what is the reason for the child to wake up every hour.
poor sleeping environment
If there is a lot of noise in the child’s room and there is not enough darkness and if the temperature of the room is not according to the child, then the child’s sleep can be disturbed again and again. Dr. Amit says that apart from this, babies also wake up frequently due to separation anxiety. They become more aware of their surroundings when you leave them alone to sleep, especially babies of seven to nine months. Because of this, the baby cries repeatedly at night and remains irritable.
If your baby has a stuffy nose, he may have trouble breathing which disrupts his sleep cycle. If you notice signs of teething in your baby, such as drooling, irritability, redness of the cheeks and gums, and excessive biting or chewing, it is highly likely that your baby is waking up several times during the night.

due to infection or hunger
Another reason why your baby may wake up frequently could be an infection or illness. If your baby has a cold or fever, he may be agitated and wake up frequently. Also, when a baby starts crawling, they often grab onto things and put them in their mouth, which increases the risk of infection. Apart from this, it is possible that due to not being able to fill the stomach properly before sleeping, the sleep of the baby is disturbed.
what should be done
Dr. Amit says that you should follow the same sleep and bedtime routine for the child every day. This helps the child to fall asleep easily and stay asleep longer. Do not play any game before sleeping at night, but try to put the child to sleep by listening to a lullaby.
