1. Look at bubs day naps: too much sleep during the day or waking too late can lead to trouble sleeping at night.
2. Does bub have a comforter eg teddy head? Use a comforter with bub regardless of whether bub sleeps in the pram, your bed, rocker, car etc.
3. Always put pub to sleep where you intend bub to wake. Transporting bub to a different bed/place can lead to waking up once the heaviest part of sleep is over (eg after 5 hours).
4. Put bub to bed drowsy but awake. Do not feed to sleep as this can lead to night waking (after the heaviest part of sleep is over bub will wake and think "what the... Where's that bottle/Boob?"). If you pat to sleep try to wind back the patting before bubs eyes close.
5. Have 20 minutes active play after the night feed/before bed. This helps to break a sleep association between the night need and sleep which can negatively impact bubs ability to self settle ... Which in turn leads to night waking.
6. Stick to a consistent bedtime routine even if you are at someone else's house. Eg dinner, bath, massage, feed, active play, book, bed.
