    Default Early sleep tips for newborn!

    So my 2yo is a shocking sleeper, still doesn't sleep through the night unless he sleeps with us (which is quite nice to snuggle with!)

    Now we have a newborn and I really want her to have a routine and sleep through the night on her own eventually (within a year - Not now!)

    Any handy tips on what I can do over the next few months to establish a great sleep routine?

    Did you dreamfeed etc? When did you start a routine? Or does it all come down to the baby?

    I need to follow this too, this is number 3 for me and both mine have been terrible sleepers for the first year. DS is now a great sleeper, but DD still not good.

    We started a routine straight away bath, feed then bed, in a bassinet in our room (never in our bed and he's 3.5 now) always keep the lighting low and atmosphere calm. Dreamfeed at about 10pm then what ever feeds he was having during the night at the time always straight back to bed never left the room with him. The bath bed thing never changed and still hasn't. He moved into his cot in his room at 5 months and we gradually dropped feeds as he got bigger.
    He has always done well with sleep and i put it down to a strict routine and even now if he wakes during the night he stays in bed, he has never been allowed out of his room when he wages we always settle him in there. Its worked for us and we will be using the same approach with our next bub due in 6 weeks

    Subbing - love your suggestions killer heels. What did you do for day time naps? Still in a basinet in your room? Did you ever feed or rock to sleep? Or put down and pat to sleep.

    No, day time sleeps in the light in the lounge room or bedroom so he got used to the difference of night and day and there was always some degree of background noise during the day
