We all need a little extra sleep.
Our Top 3 Bedtime Essentials can assist you when getting your baby into a much needed routine.
Where should my baby sleep?
For the first 6 months your baby should be in the same room as you when they're asleep, both day and night. You can start getting your baby used to going to sleep without you comforting them by putting them down before they fall asleep or when they've just finished a feed. It may be easier to do this once your baby starts to stay alert more frequently or for longer.
Establishing a bedtime routine
You may feel ready to introduce a bedtime routine when your baby is around 3 months old. Getting them into a simple, soothing bedtime routine can be helpful for everyone and help prevent sleeping problems later on. It's also a great opportunity to have one-to-one time with your baby. Our bedtime routine could consist of: - Having a bath - Changing into night clothes, a fresh nappy and our cosy sleeping bag. - Putting them into their co-sleeper - Dimming the lights in the room to create a calm atmosphere and switching on Honey Bears soothing night light and lullaby (or your baby's preferred sound feature).
