Infant Bedtime Tips

If you’ve just brought a newborn home, you’re probably preoccupied with sleep – both the baby’s and yours. Establishing a sleep routine with your infant is a good way to instill good sleep habits. Here are a few suggestions for bedtime with your baby.

  • Take note of your baby’s sleep trends. You don’t need to start a routine immediately; first, get to know your infant’s tendencies. Once you figure out when your infant sleeps for the longest chunk, begin a bedtime routine about 45 minutes before that.
  • Establish a routine. Whether it’s saying goodnight to everyone and everything, singing a song, or taking a bath, incorporate 1-4 activites that can help your baby wind down and cues them that it’s time to relax.
  • Cut back on caffeine. For you breastfeeding mom, consider going decaf while you’re breastfeeding; your baby will get a caffeine jolt otherwise.

 

Remember, a baby who sleeps through the night is a wonderful thing, but a baby who has a tough time sleeping is not a reflection of your parenting! Go easy on yourself, and if you have any questions about your or your baby’s sleep don’t hesitate to call us.
