For complete comfort of the senses we need a soft, snuggly place to sleep and something that smells like Mum. smile1.gif

Co-sleeping, with a boob close by is enough for me. What comes natural pretty much (to me).

I keep to the same routine.  My son has his feed, gets burped,nappy changed and wrapped.  He loves to be held close with my cheek lighly on his forehead.  After a cuddle he gets put into his cot to go off to sleep.

a lovely calming soak in a lavender bath follwed by some pure baby oil  for a comforting massage. No toys or music to stimulate, just peace and a  cuddle before tucking into bed!

Warm bath, bedtime book and lots and lots of snuggles.  Nothing more soothing for your bub than mummy snuggles.  They're only little for such a short time  wub.gif

Keep to a routine.

It doesn't have to be regimented,

but it is comforting to both you and bubs
if you both know the best sleeping pattern.

Keep to a routine and never be in too much of a hurry, plenty of cuddles and one happy baby!

#97 Natct

As active in the day as a baby can be,

wear them out before bed for a good nights sleep,

a drive in the car to rock them nighty night,

with a kiss on the cheek tuck them in tight.

Keep your baby in a routine and follow it each and every night. It doesnt matter what that routine involves as long as your baby has a full tummy, some quiet wind down time, and the same bed time each night. Also use an Organic Love to Swaddle up.

A peaceful nights sleep with baby is accomplished by leaving hubby to tend her, and me going to the other end of the house.  Might sound mean, but sure is essential occasionally for some sanity.

I swear by lavender baby soap. It has an amazing calming effect!!
