If your baby fights sleep, you're not alone.

This is one of the most common and frustrating dilemmas that the parents of young children face.

However, you will have some control over it.

If you can understand why the baby keeps fighting sleep, it should be easier for you to tackle a wide range of different problems involving the baby in general.

Why the Baby Fights Sleep

There are lots of reasons why the baby fights sleep all day. Some of them are outside of your control, and some of them are not.

1. Your Baby is Very Young

Many aspects of sleeping are completely outside of anyone's control, and age is certainly one of them.

Babies under the age of 3 months are going to fight sleep more than most older babies and older children, and this is just partly the matter of their biology.

Unfortunately, a newborn fighting sleep is very common. It is one of the reasons why your first 3 months with a baby are going to be some of the most difficult.

Obviously, there isn't all that much you can do about this particular step. You can try to reassure yourself that it is going to be over before you know it, even if it doesn't feel that way at first.

Some of the other strategies that you can use with an infant fighting sleep might help, but you are probably always going to have more problems with a newborn baby when it comes to a baby not sleeping.

There are other biological factors that can influence whether or not a baby sleeps through the night easily.
