Your baby won’t know the difference between night and day when they’re young. If you’re feeding them during the night you can help teach them about nighttime with a few simple adjustments:
- Teach your baby sleep cues by slowly making a bedtime routine - a bath followed by a feed and a cuddle can help your baby learn it’s time for bed.
- Keep the lights down low
- If you have to talk, keep it to a whisper
- Don't change them if you don’t need to
- Put your baby to bed as soon as they’ve been fed and changed
