Try to figure out a bed time routine that works the best for you. And it doesn't need to be complicated. It could be as simple as you bringing the baby to their room, putting on their pj's, getting cozy, reading a book or singing a song before saying goodnight.

However it looks, it's important that you be consistent and follow the same routine. Over time, the baby will learn that sleep comes after those activities.

Less naps

It might feel strange to wake a baby while they're sleeping. But sometimes, letting the baby sleep for a long time during the day can disrupt their sleep at night. Every child is different so try to figure out how many hours of sleep your baby needs during the day to still sleep good at night. You can see how much nap time your baby needs by their age here. But if you feel your child needs longer naps, feel free to increase the nap times. You know your child the best!

Keep moving

Not long ago your baby lived in the womb, in a state of drowsiness while you did your daily activities. Therefore, moving is still sleep-inducing for your child. You may have already noticed this when your baby is in the car, babycarrier or pram.

Walking slowly around the house or having a short walk outside can help. With the SleepCarrier you can hold your baby close via the harness whilst still having your hands free. And by moving the Babynest SleepCarrier back and forth you can create a feeling of calm. Once your baby has fallen asleep, you can easily place them down without being disturbed. The SleepCarrier is also perfect for going out with the stroller. Use the SleepCarrier to gently lift the baby out of the pram without waking them up.
