Think unbroken nights are a thing of the past now you’re a mum? Think again – our top tips will help ensure peaceful nights all round.
Play with her
If you keep your baby entertained with toys, new places and faces, and she gets plenty of fresh air, there’ll be lots of information to process – just what a good night’s sleep is for!
A well-fed baby stays asleep longer, so make sure she has enough milk in the day and give her a full feed before you put her down.
Let her nap too much
They say never wake a sleeping baby, but if your baby isn’t sleeping at night and is regularly taking long naps during the day, you should gently wake her after two or three hours.
Establish a calming bedtime routine
A warm bath followed by a gentle massage, if your baby enjoys them, and a story, means your little one should be super-drowsy and ready to drop off.
