Well, here are a few tips to ensure putting baby down for a great night sleep!
1) Give baby a warm bath before bed time.
This works well, I’ve done it many times with my other kids. I simply talk to Jada while I softly stroke her with her washcloth. It never fells, a warm bath and a few gentle washing strokes always relaxes a baby and before you know it your baby is off to sleep!
2) Get your family and spouse involved.
I have a habit of thinking I can do everything for Jada myself, so I need to give up that control and learn to bring in my family and spouse to assist me during bedtime. Not only that but you can check out Gerber® Good Start® Gentle to ask a few questions since they have a Certified Sleep Consultant for your little one. You can ask questions pertaining to sleeping tips, bonding tips, happy tips and more!.
3) Add an oil diffuser with a little natural fragrance oil to your baby’s room.
The all natural lavender oil scent will resonate throughout the baby’s room which will provide a calming environment so you and baby can relax. Before you know it both you and baby will be sleeping!
4) Make time for you.
As parents with newborn baby’s we seem to lack in that area more than we know even when it comes to spending time with our spouse. Catch those moments and embrace them!
Make sure baby’s sleepwear clothing fits snugly and is made of cotton. On those pretty hot days like we have been experiencing….place just a nice cool undershirt on baby.
6) Try a new formula,
Sometimes it’s not just the simple things that keep your baby awake all night. Maybe it’s the formula we are using that may be irritating her stomach at night.
But most of all, I want you and every new mom to know that Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formulas are now all Non-GMO, which means their formulas are not made with genetically engineered ingredients. Just because they are Non-GMO there is no reason to believe that Non-GMO products are heathier than other products. The Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formula has made this change in order to meet the evolving preference of formula using parents.
Here’s a little about Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formula:
Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formula is a brand that saw the importance of rising a heathier, happy child and they listened to the consumers when it came to feedback about their products. They made changes across all their formulas, they can now offer products for moms with a wide variety of needs.
