Our sleep expert Lucy Wolfe offers her great tips for how to achieve great sleep for your baby. Here’s tip #4…

Lucy says:

“One of the biggest difficulties that parents experience is that they don’t get the timing for sleep right. Most sleep difficulties are governed by biological timekeeping, that’s the time you get up in the morning.

So I recommend a regular wake time, no later than 7:30AM and then we run the numbers throughout the course of the day based on your baby’s body language and their need for sleep.

Another big point for families is that they often are attempting bedtime when it’s too late and your child is already over tired. By the time your child is about 4 months plus, most children benefit from a bedtime between 6pm and 8pm, so we like to try and bring it forward as the first few months go by.”
