In general, you should be making sure you put your baby down every 1 - 2 hours (including feeding them). From three months onward, this can be stretched to 1.5 - 2.5 hours.
Babies thrive on a consistent routine, as it makes them feel safe and secure. Develop a set of rituals and repeat these each time you put your baby down for a nap. A good routine may include feeding, changing, cuddling, saying goodnight to whomever is in the house, and playing some relaxing white noise, before taking them to their room for sleep.
When it is safe to do so, (from no earlier than four months), give your baby a snuggly comforter before each nap and nighttime sleep. This will give them something to attach to and will also act as a sleep cue.
In their crib during the day.The more regularly you put your baby to sleep in their crib, the quicker they will learn and understand that this is their dominant sleep space.
It can be very tempting to be out all day at different activities, but try to limit it to once or twice a day maximum. This way, you ensure they are getting enough nap time.
From three months of age, try to focus on developing only a few methods of getting your baby to sleep so they do not become confused and reliant on too many different techniques.
It is a good idea to prepare their room this way each time they go to sleep both during the day and at night.
You can begin a regular bedtime routine straight away. It is a good way to get your baby calm and settled just before putting them to sleep.
Ensuring you are feeding your baby well during the day will help them sleep better at night. If you are breastfeeding, make sure that you also eat well, so your milk supply is at its highest.
