Are you a new parent struggling with your baby’s sleep? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Sleep is a common challenge for many parents with infants aged 0-8 months. Here are a few tips from our Adventure Babies crew to help your baby sleep better and get the rest they need:
- Establish a bedtime routine: a predictable routine before bed can help your baby calm down and prepare for sleep.
- Create a conducive sleep environment: a quiet, dark, and cool room with a comfortable crib can help your baby sleep better.
- Watch for sleep cues: babies have different sleep needs, so watch for signs of sleepiness such as yawning, rubbing eyes, or fussing.
- Try swaddling: many babies feel more secure and sleep better when swaddled in a blanket.
- Stick to a consistent sleep schedule: aim for regular nap times and bedtime to help your baby’s body get into a rhythm.
