3 Tips for Newborns

If you’ve recently welcomed a new baby into the home, you’re no doubt aware of the fact that they typically don’t sleep through the night.

There are some “unicorns,” of course. Some newborns are just full-on sleep fanatics, and they sleep ten or eleven hours a night from the day they’re born! But they’re definitely the exception, not the rule.

In all likelihood, your newborn is going to need to feed at least a couple of times a night, and that’s just something we have to embrace for the first six months or so.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t start helping your baby learn some great sleep skills before that six month mark. Just the opposite, in fact! These early stages are a great time to develop some good habits (and to prevent some bad ones) in order to set your baby up for long nights of deep, consolidated sleep as soon as they’re ready.
