Re: back to the no sleep

Yes, a consistent bedtime routine is key. Also here's a little tip which you might want to try.

Re: Summer Bedtimes

I personally stuck to a year round routine, but it depends on your baby's sleeping pattern. I wouldn't advise changing it drastically, maybe an hour later? If they still get a full night's sleep and...

Re: Cosleeping

I didn't co-sleep with either of my two children, but sometimes I wish I'd tried it. I think co-sleeping as fine, up to a point, as I believe if you do it for too long, it can discourage independence...

Re: Baby not sleeping in crib

It's still early days, and he will probably get used to it in time. However to help the process, try letting him sleep next to a small soft toy that smells of mum! Sleep with the toy yourself at...

Re: No daytime sleep!

This is probably a phase which will pass in time. How often does he take naps during the day? Some babies need shorter, more frequent naps, where as others can be completely different. The norm is...

Re: How to deal with lack of sleep!

Oh I see :) Sounds like you're doing all the right things, especially if she's taking enough naps during the day. I'm sure it's a phase which will pass. Good luck!

Re: 4 month sleep regression!?!?!?!?

It's normal for babies to experience some sleep regression at this age, usually between 3-5 months. It's usually caused by a change in their sleeping pattern, from long periods of deep sleep as a...

Re: How to deal with lack of sleep!

Try to avoid doing this if you can. It's a common misconception that keeping a baby awake during the day can help her sleep at night. In fact, it can make things worse.

Re: Where does baby sleep?

My baby slept in a bassinet next to our bed at first before moving to her own crib. When she turned 6 months, she moved into her own room.

Re: What do you think?

I also prefer Adeline to Adalynn. I like Faith as a middle name.
For boys names already listed in this thread, Oliver is a great choice.
