If your child isn't sleeping through the night, you're probably missing out on sleep too. Part of a baby's sleeplessness is to be expected. Rare is the infant who sleeps through the night starting from the day that you bring him home from the hospital. Part of the trouble could be due to the fact that your infant's sleeping and living environment has changed, shifting from your warm womb to a crib.

Find out if your house is keeping your newborn up at night

Uncomfortable effects and lack of support in your newborn's bedroom could be other reasons why your infant is struggling to sleep through the night. To find what's keeping your baby  up at night and how to soothe your child:

  • Pay attention to how much light is streaming through your infant's bedroom window
  • Let your infant sleep on her own instead of in bed with you
  • Don't let your infant sleep too much during the day
  • Stimulate your infant's brain with colors and wonder during the day
  • Check to see if your baby's mattress is too hard or too soft
  • Spend a night in your child's room to see if there's too much noise entering the room. Don't assume that your newborn's room is quiet or free of light blasts.
  • Stay away from feeding your child too much before you put your child to bed for the night
  • Make sure that you are relaxed, as your child could pick up your energy and stress
  • Envelope your child in love, warmth, care and acceptance
  • Don't over indulge your child
  • Give your child a warm bath before you put him to bed
  • Try playing low, soothing music if your child continues to struggle to get and or remain asleep
  • Consider rocking your child to sleep a few times and note if your child sleeps better when you rock her to sleep
  • Use a child alarm, so you'll know if your infant is awake. This may encourage you to sleep at night without worrying that something might be keeping your baby awake.
  • Make an appointment with your pediatrician if your child continues to struggle to get and stay asleep to rule out that nothing else is going on with your child

Help your newborn get accustomed to living in a new place

It's no secret that it takes infants time to get accustomed to sleeping through the night. Some babies confuse day with night, sleeping more during the daytime than at night. But, that doesn't mean that you cannot teach your newborn how to sleep three or more hours at a time before they wake up at night.

Another thing that you could do to help your newborn sleep through the night is to ensure that your infant's bedroom is suitable for a good night of sleep. Even a small amount of simmering light, outside noise and stress could make it hard for your newborn to fall and stay asleep.

In fact, many of the same experiences that keep you up at night, may keep your baby from sleeping. Avoid assuming that just because everything looks right in your child's bedroom that the room encourages restful sleep. You might have to sleep in your infant's bedroom once to measure how restful the room is. But, it's worth it. This one night could alert you to actions you need to take so that both you and your baby can get the rest that you need.

An open house can be a life-changing event for a homebuyer. If you plan ahead for an open house, you should have no trouble determining whether a residence matches or exceeds your expectations. And if the answer is "Yes," you can proceed quickly to submit a competitive offer to acquire a house.

What does it take to prep for an open house? Here are three open house preparation tips that every homebuyer needs to know.

1. Understand Your Budget

Before you attend an open house, you should find out how much money is at your disposal. Thus, you may want to meet with banks and credit unions to see if you can get pre-approved for a mortgage. That way, you can kick off your home search with a budget in hand.

Although you know that you have only a certain amount of money to spend on a residence, it may be worthwhile to consider attending open houses for residences with initial asking prices that are above your price range. Because in some instances, a home seller may be willing to accept an offer that falls below his or her initial asking price.

2. Create a List of Questions

A home is one of the biggest purchases that a person can make, and as such, it pays to be diligent. If you craft a list of questions before an open house, you can get immediate responses from the showing agent. Then, you can determine the best course of action.

When it comes to an open house, there is no such thing as a "bad" question. As a homebuyer, it is paramount to get as much information as possible about a residence to determine whether a house is right for you. Therefore, if you create a list of questions in advance, you can improve your chances of getting the most out of an open house.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

If you're uncertain about how to approach an open house, you're not alone. Fortunately, real estate agents are available nationwide who are happy to teach you the ins and outs of the real estate market. By doing so, these housing market professionals will make it easy to take an informed approach to any open house, at any time.

A real estate agent will always keep you up to date about new residences as they become available. Also, if you are interested in homes in a particular city or town, a real estate agent will notify you about open houses in this area. And if you need extra help prepping for an open house, a real estate agent is happy to assist you in any way possible.

Let's not forget about the support that a real estate agent provides throughout the homebuying journey, either. A real estate agent will help you submit an offer on a house, negotiate with a seller's agent on your behalf and much more.

Be diligent as you get ready for an open house use the aforementioned tips, and you can fully prepare for an open house.
