While few parents love co-sleeping with their little one’s, for others it’s an absolute no-no. To save you some time (and mental stability), here are 6 hints for getting an infant to rest in a cot.

  1. Infants can’t differentiate between day and night so we need to educate them. Make sure that at night-time, the bedroom is dim and calm – and avoid interacting with them (even when changing diapers). the daytime, spend as much time with your little one as possible outdoors, surrounded by noise and in light spaces.
  2. Get your infant into a routine as early as possible. It doesn’t need to be complex or timed to the minute, but something as per shower  (7 pm), breast/bottle (7.30 pm), book and bed (8/8.30pm). Pick the occasions to suit you and your little one. We tried to skip the bath one night and our little one wouldn’t settle it’s an incredible method to calm them and advise them that it’s almost sleeping time. And bedtime means: in the cot, all alone, sleeping.
  3. Putting your little one down for naps in the cot during the daytime will make him feel more acquainted with it come night-time. Also, darkness can be frightening and disorientating so getting a little one into bed zone in the daytime (or in a slightly darkened rather than pitch dark room) cause him to feel more secure when he’s put down in the cot at night.
  4. Infants love warmth. The worm was warm and comfortable, as are your arms and chest. So putting a hot water bottle down in the cot before the little one goes in will warm it up pleasantly. But remember to remove it before putting the little one down to nap – they mustn’t sleep with a hot water bottle in the cot.
  5. White noise is great for calming infants, as well as drowning out kin/guardians ground floor/creaky planks of flooring. The rain and heartbeat combined have worked wonders for settling our little one.
  6. Some haven’t wrapped up their infants, but few parents swear by it. Again, it is just making a womb-like circumstance, to make your infant feel warm and cuddled rather than lonely in a large space.

Keep in mind. Since your baby reaches six months you don’t need to move them to their cot immediately. If everyone is sleeping well they’re truly is no surge. If you have enough space you might just need to move their cot into your bedroom, to begin with, but if you’re already cramped in your room and your little one isn’t yet falling asleep for longer stretches at night a move may be the ideal ticket for every one of you.
