Feeding to sleep
When your baby
is a newborn it is perfectly normal for them to feed to sleep and there is nothing
wrong with doing this
I suggest from 12 weeks onwards you start to disassociate feeding and sleep.
DID YOU KNOW ... Bottle fed babies cluster feed too
Swaddling is a great way to help newborns to sleep more contently. Many parents I work with say their baby doesn't like swaddling.
Watch our swaddling video to check how to swaddle like a pro .
To swaddle you can use a muslin or a specially made swaddle wrap.
Stop swaddling once your baby can roll or reaches 5 months.
A baby's sleep cycles are shorter than an adults around 45-60 minutes during the day.
At night a baby's sleep cycle is around 2 hours.
It is really important you look after your well-being as well as your baby's. If you are stressed or worried your baby will pick up on this so do your best to manage your stress levels.
