hello mommies..

my baby ayel is turning 3 months on sept. 11..last sunday lang kami nag-decide na dim light na lang kami sa room at night..katabi naman ng bed namin un crib niya so from time to time nasisilip ko agad c baby..

worry ko lang is naninibago pa c baby..pag lights off na kami sa room, ingit siya ng ingit & pumapadyak kahit karga ko na siya..tuloy back to super hele ulit ako..then ang likot ng eyes niya..pinapakiramdaman ko nga if bumibilis un heart beat niya..kasi baka makasama sa kanya..baka natatakot siya & makasama sa kanya un or maging cause ng trauma..

then pag nagigising siya na nasa crib na siya..iiyak talaga siya..sabi namin ni hubby naninibago pa siguro..regret ko tuloy ngayon is bakit now lang kami gumamit ng dim light..i read kasi taht it will be helpful for babies to differentiate daytime and night time..na pag dim light na, it means time for him to sleep na..sana earlier namin un prinactice..

do you think makakabuti siya kay baby to have discipline on sleeping and sanayin lang nakin siya nang sanayin or it will cause problem to his behavior?

help me please..i badly need some insights..thanks in advance!

Mod's note:
While it’s important to have a dark room to set the mood for sleep, your baby still needs a source of light.

dahan dahan lang mommy your baby will adjust to your new setting din naman. problem mo naman nyan e pag nasanay sa hele  :o pag mabigat na sya and nasanay sya sa hele naku mahihirapan ka ulit.
If you want to instill a habit start early kasi baka mahirapan ka pag may nakasanayan na silang iba.
My son is only 15 mos, alam niya na yun pag off na everything, kuha niya na milk niya and sleep. I dont need to hele him or do anything else anymore. I can even leave him sa room and he will just sleep on his own lang. Babalikan ko nalang sya to get his empty bottle.

Since my baby was born, we never turned off the light in our room. 24 hours sya naka-on. Until my baby turned 2 months. We would turn-off the light at night before going to sleep and when she's already asleep. Then we'd turn on the light outside the room para may konti pa ring liwanag in case magising si baby, hindi very dark ang room.

Try mo sis to turn off the light when your baby is asleep already.

never kming nagturn off ng light kahit 1yr old na yung bunso ko..kasi ayaw kong magagapangan sya ng kahit anong insects esp. yung maliliit na langgam or lamok or surot..lumang bahay kasi yung inuupahan namin..so paminsan minsan may nakakalusot na ipis or surot..di naman mahirap patulugin baby ko.natutulog magisa eversince.bka mommy kaya ingit ng ingit bka may kumakagat ng insect.kasi yung bunso ko pag umingit un, may kumakagat don kaya hahanapin ko or magpagpag ako..pag chineck ko yung braso meron n ngang kagat..

my room is right next to our garage. kapag gabi lights off sa room but the light from the garage still goes in the room kaya never naging totally madilim siya. the curtains in my room is also lace kaya kahit nakababa curtain may liwanag pa din. hindi din kasi sanay girls ko na natutulog na may ilaw. dim light lang para hindi mahirap gumalaw sa room if i need to mix Gabby's milk or need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

ako din dimlight lang. may lampshade sa loob ng room. same with mommy amber, mas himbing sleep ni Tyler pag ganun. hindi kasi sya sanay naka on yung light. 2 months sya nung nagstart kami na dim light. milk and sleep beside him lang katapat ni Tyler. then maya tulog na agad. hirap kasi masanay sa hele ang babies. bigat pa naman niya 11.5kilos. sakit sa braso. :o kaya no more hele for him.

same with my baby, sinanay ko din siya. Madalas ayaw na niyang ipa-on ang main na ilaw sa kwarto namin, mas gusto niya yong sa lamp shade na lang.

dim light rin ang gamit namin.. 'pag late night na at 'di pa sya tulog, on na namin yung dim light.. Minsan nakakatulog na sya on his own.. Pag maliwanag kasi laro pa ng laro si baby ko.. We used dim light para at his age alam na niya na sleeping time na.

sis, wag mo muna sanayin na naka lights off kasi baka di mo napapasin may mga insecto or kung ano anong gumagapang sa higaan ng baby mo. mas maigi use lamp shade.

baby ko nasanay sa dim light nung 6month old na sya. medyo natatakot pa noon pero ngayon sanay na kapag lights off na at nakita ang glow-in-the-dark na star nag start na sya mag sign ng twinkle twinkle.

try mo rin mag lagay nun sa kisame nyo, para may maaninag pa rin syang liwanag.
