Erm..Najwan's age is almost to 6 months and his sleep routine also change...Sometimes he wakes up at midnight to play with I surf this website to find out how to establish good sleep habits for baby around 3-6 months. I hope it works (",)

You can click to find more tips about good sleep habits for baby.

By now your nights of getting up every two or three hours are behind you -- we hope. By three or four months, most babies are sleeping 15 hours a day, around 10 of those hours at night and the rest divided among three daytime naps (that number will drop to two when your baby is about six months old). You may still be getting up once or twice a night for feeds at the beginning of this stage, but by the time your baby is six months old, she'll be physically capable of sleeping through the night. Whether she actually will depends on whether she's learning sleep habits and patterns that will encourage this.

How you can establish good sleep habits
At this age, these are some of the best things you can do to help your child settle and sleep at night: Establish set bedtimes and naptimes -- and stick to them. When your baby was a newborn, deciding when to put her down for the night was as easy as watching for her signs of sleepiness (eye-rubbing, ear-pulling, and so on). Now that she's a little older, you should establish a specific bedtime, as well as consistent
naptimes, to regulate her sleep patterns. A good baby bedtime is usually between 7pm and 8.30pm; any later and she's likely to get overtired and have a hard time falling asleep. Your baby may not seem tired late at night -- on the contrary, she may appear very energetic, almost bouncing off the walls. But that's often a sign it's past her bedtime.

You can set naptimes the same way you set bedtimes -- plan them for a specific time each day -- or go more by feel, putting your baby down when you know she's tired and needs to recharge. As long as she's getting enough sleep, either approach is fine. Begin to develop a bedtime routine. If you haven't already done so, now is also a good time to start a bedtime routine. Your routine can include any (or all) of the following: giving your baby a bath, playing a quiet game, getting your child ready for bed, reading a bedtime story or two, singing a lullaby and giving her a kiss goodnight.

Whatever routine works for your family is fine, as long as you do it in the same order and at the same time every night. Children thrive on consistency, and this is no exception. Wake your child in the morning to reset her daily clock. If your baby tends to sleep more than 10 hours at night, it's okay to wake her up in the morning to help her reset her daily clock. While it may seem like 10 hours at night isn't a problem, your baby needs to follow a regular sleep / wake pattern and recharge with naps during the day. Waking her at the same time every morning will help keep her sleep schedule predictable.

Beside that, we as a muslim must read the "Sleep Doa" and "Ayat Kursi" before our baby going to sleep. May Allah protect any disturbance while our baby is sleeping. Insya Allah.
