Here are 3 things that surprisingly aren’t great for your baby’s sleep:
Cot Mobiles are great for entertaining and distraction, but having them move around above them can be overstimulating. You want your baby to associate their cot specifically with sleeping. In this way, they are able to differentiate the cot as a sleepy cue, which will help them to wind down easier.
Lullabies and music are great as part of a pre-sleep ritual. But playing it while they’re falling asleep or during sleeping can disrupt them. The change in rhythm and tones in a song might wake them up fully from a lighter sleep phase..
Holding Your Baby As You Fall Asleep
Remember that safe sleep is a must. If you are tired, put your baby back in their crib. Oftentimes, exhausted parents fall asleep holding their baby and wake up with their baby in a dangerous position.
