How to establish a bedtime routine

A good night’s sleep is essential for the long-term health of your baby.

1 min to read Dec 30, 2021

It’s never too early to get into the habit of a bedtime routine for your baby. In the first few weeks, bedtime may be a different time every night. When your baby reaches about two months of age, they may begin to settle into a preferred bedtime.

A regular evening routine will help your baby to settle more quickly and, according to scientific studies, can reduce the number of times they wake in the night as they get older. Once your baby is more active during the day, she may need time to ease into bedtime. Gradually shift from stimulating activities to a quiet, relaxing routine that leads to sleep.
