Introduction

When your baby is awake and gurgling, it can be difficult to tell if she’s ready to sleep. To help make sure your baby gets the right amount of rest, follow these tips:

Set up a bedtime routine. A consistent bedtime routine lets your baby know that sleep is coming.

A consistent bedtime routine is important. It helps your baby know that sleep is coming and it can help them develop a pattern of falling asleep easily.

Your baby’s schedule should be short, relaxing, and not stressful. A regular bedtime routine helps babies to feel more settled before they go off to dreamland, so make sure that your child’s night-time rituals don’t include long baths or showers (unless you want them!).

Your newborn might enjoy being bathed in warm water after a nice bath at home; however, if you’re juggling with other commitments at this time then consider using an infant bathtub instead!

Put your baby to bed drowsy — but awake. This helps establish the habit of falling asleep without help.

To help your baby fall asleep on its own, it’s important to put them down drowsy but awake. This helps establish the habit of falling asleep without help.

The idea is that as soon as a baby falls asleep in your arms, they’ve learned how easy it is for them to fall asleep on their own and they may become reliant upon you at night time. If you let them fall asleep in your arms or on top of you when they are very young (first few months), then once they get older and start learning how much energy babies need during the day, it becomes more difficult for them to learn how much sleep they need at night time and therefore harder for them to find ways themselves how to improve their sleep quality which could lead into chronic fatigue syndrome later in life if left untreated

Keep things quiet and dark. Quiet, calm, and darkness signal rest time to your baby. Set the stage for sleep by dimming or turning off lights in the house once it’s time for your baby to go to bed.

You’ll also want to make sure that there are no distractions present when you put down your child—no phones ringing, televisions blaring or other noises that might keep them awake until morning (and possibly even past their typical bedtime).

Feed your baby before bedtime. Babies use feeding as a way to comfort themselves when they’re upset or sleepy — so if you feed her right before bed, she’ll learn that food makes her feel better, not more relaxed.

Don’t feed your baby at bedtime. If you are breastfeeding and can’t wait until after nursing to put on the bottle (or vice versa), this should be fine for now; however, make sure that whatever formula mixture you’re using contains only breast milk and nothing else until after the first week of life has passed! Otherwise, it could irritate their tummy and cause colic symptoms in addition to causing developmental delays in babies who are still learning how much weight should actually come from each feeding session instead of two separate ones.”

Consider swaddling your baby. Swaddling recreates the feeling of being in the womb, which can be soothing to newborns and encourage them to sleep longer. Swaddling also helps prevent your baby from startling herself awake with her own Moro reflex (or startle reflex).

Swaddling your baby is a great way to help her sleep longer, feel safe and secure, and prevent the Moro reflex.

The technique is simple: Start by wrapping a blanket around your baby’s torso (not head) from chest to hips. Then wrap another blanket tightly around her legs from ankles down to knees. Finally, wrap another blanket between her legs under the first one over her waist area so that she can’t move around in bed. This will make sure that she stays put until morning when you wake up!

Conclusion

Now that you know how to help your baby sleep well, you’re ready for the next big step: putting these tips into action. The best news is that just about any baby will benefit from some extra shut-eye. As long as they’re not overtired or too excited, most newborns can go at least 12 hours between naps — and even if they do need a nap by day two or three, it’s usually not much longer than 20 minutes or so. We hope these tips were helpful in getting your little one on track towards healthy sleep habits!
