Tips To Keep Your Baby Asleep For Longer

If your baby only naps 30 minutes, these tips may help to increase nap time. It means a more content baby and less stressed parents! Devising and adhering to a nap schedule can help, especially if you also create a pre-nap routine, that might include singing, talking or rocking the crib. For most babies, night time sleep is more beneficial and restorative, and coming up with an appropriate bedtime can help. For most babies, an appropriate bedtime is somewhere between 6pm and 8pm. You should also look for signs that your baby is tired and ready to nap or go to sleep, such as crying, yawning or rubbing eyes. And make sure the sleeping environment encourages sound sleep; it should be comfortable, quiet and not too hot or cold. As a general rule, babies younger than six months should sleep in their parents’ room.
