SLEEP SKILLS

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - The Buzz -

Ac­cord­ing to Jen Hamil­ton, par­ent­ing ex­pert and founder of the WOTBaby ad­vice app, the num­ber-one ques­tion raised by new par­ents is ‘How do I get my baby to sleep?’. Not get­ting enough sleep won’t just af­fect bub, it’ll af­fect you too.

Your baby will re­spond to dif­fer­ent tech­niques as she grows older, but en­cour­ag­ing her to be­gin self-set­tling when she’s about 12 weeks old will help her form pos­i­tive habits around sleep. “Be­tween three and four months, it is cru­cial for bubs to be able to put them­selves to sleep, as the qual­ity of their sleep will be bet­ter,” says Jen. “Per­se­vere – it can of­ten take up to half an hour.”
