‘Baby-whisperer’ Jo Ryan gives her top five tips on getting your baby to sleep well.
Know how long your baby should be awake for.
Know how much sleep your baby needs for a 24 hour period.
Don’t be afraid to put your baby down awake. They will often be able to fall asleep on their own if you let them try.
Know your baby will develop strong sleep associations. So remember if you are repeating the same thing time and time again they will become dependant upon that.
And, go with your gut. You know your baby better than anyone else so follow that.
