create a calm environment for your baby to sleep in

New mums know that it is quite a task to get their newborn or infant to sleep through the night. But it's not the little one's fault either. During the initial months of life, babies aren't able to differentiate night from day. The onus is always on the parents to establish a good sleep cycle early in life.

To help your baby sleep better, create a calm and cozy atmosphere around. Dim the lights, sing lullabies, put her on her baby bed and try not to give in to her tantrums easily. Keep her toys, specially the musical ones away while you try to lull her to sleep. Also keep the routine before her sleep fixed and monotonous, this helps to establish the sleep-wake cycle in babies soon. Know about the other ways in which you can put your baby to sleep.
