    Here, Jo Tantum gives her top five tips on getting babies to sleep:

    1. Always listen to your gut

      Your baby doesn’t just cry for a feed, there are many other reasons, including tiredness. If your baby has had a feed and is still upset, try for a nap.

    2. Be sensitive to the light

      Babies become very sensitive to light as they get older. This sensitivity tends to peak at around 4 months old and is a huge developmental leap for them. Try to use blackout for daytime naps and at nights to help with unwanted early morning awakening’s, and avoid switching on the light when feeding.

      Instead, use the en-suite or the 1 last update 2020/10/26 landing light for slight illumination. You can also experiment with products like the ‘Mee light’ which has a low blue glow. Darkness triggers melatonin - the sleepy hormone. However, when lights are on babies will be unable to switch off and will in turn, fight sleep.Instead, use the en-suite or landing light for slight illumination.

    3. Swaddling

      Swaddling your baby in a natural breathable material can really help them sleep better. They feel more snug and secure just like being in the womb. If they start fretting in the early evening, take them into a dark room, play this album and swaddle them, holding them closely.

    4. Sleep triggers

      Just like adults, babies need triggers to go to sleep. Having a total blackout, a comfortable place to lay (cot), a swaddle (or sleeping bag), a bedtime story (from around 4 months), cuddles and soothing sounds will help them wind down and become naturally sleepy.

    5. Quiet time before bed - and some relaxing music

      baby sleep 🔥how to baby sleep for Have some quiet time before bedtime every night, therefore, no TV or tinkly toys. Use this music to help your baby become calm and relaxed, ready for bedtime. Around an hour before bedtime you can have nappy off time (from 6 weeks) and then bath time. While your baby is feeding you can continue playing this music (Sleep Baby Sleep) in the background, it will soon become a trigger for sleep.

    Sleep Baby Sleep is available to pre-order from Friday 18th January, and is released on 25th January.
