How To Get Your Baby To Sleep

Some babies sleep much more than others.  Your baby will have their own pattern of waking and sleeping, and it’s unlikely to be the same as other babies you know.

It’s also unlikely to fit in with your need for sleep.

Try to sleep when your baby sleeps. Really important for you to rest even if it is only 25 minutes, makes all the difference, set your alarm and lie down and close your eyes!

If you are breastfeeding in the early weeks your baby is likely to doze off for short periods during a feed. Carry on feeding until you think your baby has finished or until they’re fully asleep. This is a good opportunity to place your baby in his cot.

For the first six months your baby should be in the same room as you when they’re asleep, both day and night. In the early weeks, your baby may only fall asleep in your arms or your partner’s arms, or when you’re standing by the cot.

You can gradually 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.
