Hi,
Congratulations firstly what a great Christmas present!
It is never to early to start teaching a good sleeping routine and this will lead to good habits.

If you were to follow a feed /play/ sleep routine, you would feed baby when he wakes then play (this can be as much as a nappy change at this age)and watch for tired signs and then when these signs are displayed you can settle baby awake into the cot. This teaches baby to sleep independently and avoids a tired baby falling asleep during the feed.

This will also help you to know if baby is hungry or if these are tired cries.

You can get details for our settling program from <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> page or from <a href="It's time to sleep</a"http://www.itstimetosleep.com/">It's Time To Sleep</a> DVD&BOOK.
