One of the first things that you want to learn as a new parent is sleep training methods and how to get baby to sleep as easily and stress-free as possible.
The first is to ensure that your baby is comfortable. This means a good diaper, like one from the Huggies Little Snugglers range, and a loose fitting sleep suit. Likewise, you want your baby’s cot to be a nice, warm temperature, so that your baby is not too hot or too cold during the night.
One of the favored methods of getting baby to sleep is using a soothing method. This involves gently cradling and nursing the baby so that he feels safe and can go to sleep in a natural way.
Another tip is to try and get into a routine as soon as possible. This means putting baby down for a nap at the same time every day, and again at the same time every night. With repeated practice, your baby should get used to the routine that you lay out and this will make bedtimes easier for both of you.
In a similar way, it is important to make sure that your baby’s bedroom is a quiet and peaceful environment. If you have pets, particularly dogs, make sure that they are kept well away as they are known to make noise at the wrong time!
Finally, if your baby is still experiencing sleep difficulties then we recommend an added comfort, such as soft music in the background, or something related to the mother, such as a piece of clothing, left in the cot to make baby feel extra safe.
These are just a few of the sleep training methods that we suggest on how to get baby to sleep. Don’t forget to check out our Huggies printable coupons too and you can get great savings on items like the Little Snuggler baby diapers!
