3 Best Sleep Tips Newborn

Do you have a newborn? Have you been told that it’s too early to teach your newborn how to sleep well? Did you know I fostered healthy sleep habits for my baby girl from Day 1?⁣

It was the best decision I made for my 4th baby. (That’s my newborn baby girl in the pic)


She started sleeping for longer stretches at night by 6 weeks old. Granted of course some nights she would still wake up for feeds because her tummy was still very tiny as a newborn. ⁣

Here are my 3 key sleep tips for newborns.

1. Establishing a Routine

Yes contrary to popular belief, you can still have a routine for your newborn. Your newborn can only be awake for 45 mins to 1 hour. So make sure you allow your newborn plenty of time to sleep in between the feeds.

2. Pausing

Newborns tend to make a lot of noise, fuss, whine and cry before they fall asleep and that’s totally normal. You need to pause for a few minutes before picking baby up right away.⁣

3. Self Settling

Your newborn can self settle if given the chance to do so. Consistency is the key here. I like to apply the 80/20 rule for newborns. 80% of the chance I would allow my baby to self settle to sleep and 20% of the time I would help my baby fall asleep especially during those witching hours when she just can’t seem to self settle. If you follow this 80/20 rule – chances are your baby is on the right track to sleeping better and longer as she gets older.⁣
