One of the biggest concerns that new parents will have is the tiredness – exhaustion in some cases – that comes with a newborn. Babies have a notorious reputation for not sleeping well, or for waking multiple times during the night, and this can be a worry, especially if at least one of the parents is working and needs to be wide awake during the daytime. This, added to the fact that being over-tired can cause havoc with your emotions, making things seem much more difficult than they really are, and it’s plain to see why parents (even experienced once) are concerned about the sleeping patterns their baby will (or won’t) fall into.
Although at least some part of a baby’s ability to sleep and how quickly they sleep through the night will be down to their nature and how they function in general, there are some useful tips you can put into practice to give you the best chance of having your little one sleep for longer periods more quickly. These are not all guaranteed, and it may be a case of trial and error, but they are certainly worth considering if you want to get some more rest. Read on to find out more.
