Your days are about to get busy, use these 3 tips from those who have been there before.
- Sleep when your baby sleeps.
In the early days this is really important. Your baby can take an age to get into a routine, so snatch sleep when you can.
- Background noise is great.
This might sound counterproductive, but newborns are used to a noisy environment, so keep it loud: use the washing machine, hoover or white noise to help the little one fall asleep.
- Coping with colic.
Remember colic is a stage, it isn’t forever. Focus your energies on soothing your little one rather than finding a cure. Cuddles and comfort definitely help.
