Dream feeds worked brilliantly for 3 of my 4 children, for some reason it never worked for my daughter. My routine was bubs in bed by 7pm, dream feed at 10/10.30pm and then let them go for the rest...

I have the Grobag thermometer blu-tacked to my bub's wall and I stick to that guide. Between 16-18 degrees I pop bubs in a 2.5 bag, as well as a LS top under her LS pj's. Perfect. She doesn't wake...

I would get rid of the night light and get rid of the music for a start, they are only stimulants.

I trust you are putting him in the same place (his cot) to sleep IN THE DARK during the day? Don't fall into the trap of putting him to sleep in daylight just because it is day time...

I swaddled for as long as possible with all my kids, which was about 5 months. I avoided the dummy at all costs (and I see you have found out why), and all the babies just sucked on their fingers. ...

carmarriner replied to topic My baby wont sleep during the day! Help.

No no no - stick to the feed, play sleep routine! Never feed and put straight to sleep, bubs will develop an association. Do you put her to bed in her cot, wrapped tightly, in the dark during the d...
