2. Settling Down
With my eldest child, we bought a lovely lullaby machine. It gently sang lullabies as well as projecting stars onto the ceiling. She loved to have this on whilst she dropped off. I tried to limit my fussing whilst she was going to sleep so she learnt how to settle without me. I know since she was little these machines have become far more advanced. So, may be a good idea to ask other new mums what they use with their babies.
It's really important to have the right temperature in your baby’s bedroom. Not only for their safety but also to ensure that they don't get too hot or cold in the night. Which in turn may cause them to have a disturbed night’s sleep.
