4 Early months suggestions
- Master a pre-sleep ritual
Whenever you are ready, do this in the bedroom that your child will sleep in, dim the lights, connect, and engage, telling them you love them as you prepare them for sleep.
- Aim for more awake than asleep
At bedtime specifically consider having your child go into their sleep space aware that you put them down- use my percentage of wakefulness approach to initiate future sleep ability.
- Avoid comparison
Every baby is so different, don’t diminish their individuality by comparing with another, have low expectations, learn more and develop a rhythm together that suits you both.
- Keep night feeds low-key
Whilst I always encourage responsive parenting day and night-keep night feeds in the dark, in the bedroom and without too much stimulation.
