5 Baby Sleep Tips

One of the most difficult things for new parents to deal with is a newborn's sleeping habits. Most of us are familiar with the circles around the eyes of new parents and their complaints about lack of sleep. Here are 5 baby sleep tips, which wil hopeful y help both your newborn - and you - to get a solid night's rest.

Develop and Stick to a Routine
One of the most important things you can do in terms of getting your newborn to sleep better is to establish a routine, and to stick to it. The more regular your baby's sleeping hours are, the more likely he or she wil be able to sleep solidly throughout the night.

As soon as possible, try and establish a sleeping pattern with your newborn that mimics the one in the rest of the household - in other words, one in which most of the sleeping is done at night. If you find that your newborn is sleeping-in because of being up late at night, rouse him or her at the time when you normal y get up. By doing this it's more likely that your newborn wil be tired and sleep in the evenings.


On a general level, there wil be no way to avoid the fact that your baby's sleeping habits are going to be irregular, and there are, of course, going to be times when the baby simply wants to be awake when the rest of the family wants to be asleep. Over time, however, your newborn will begin to adjust to your family's regular sleeping habits if you instil in him or her at an early age a sense of routine.


A baby, particularly when he or she is very young, is heavily influenced by these routines. As much as possible, you should resist the temptation to let the newborn arrange his or her sleeping habits. The baby, of course, wil want to sleep a lot -- which is fine -- but don't let the baby sleep too late into the morning. By establishing a routine with your baby from a young age you wil ensure that the transition into more regular sleeping habits is both a quicker and smoother one.
