The distinction between night and day might seem obvious to us, but babies come into this world with no perception of this. You are there to help them learn that nights – and associated darkness – are for sleeping (among many other things!). One way to help your growing baby grasp this concept, and to help you get a modest Sunday morning lie-in, is by installing black-out blinds in their bedroom or nursery. These are especially useful in summer when the sun rises early and sets late. With the pull of a blind, you can begin to transform your baby's sleeping patterns to align them with your own.
To help lull your baby to sleep, consider hanging up a mobile above their cot at bedtime. Watching the gentle movement will have a calming effect, encouraging them to settle down and eventually drift off. Filling your baby’s cot with familiar items that are pleasant to touch will also help make them feel content. Toys for newborns are a great option, as they won’t have any sharp edges or small parts that can come off and be swallowed.
