Sleepless nights are one of the hardest stages of early motherhood that new mums have to adapt to, but what happens when your routine is thrown by an hour? Experts tend to agree that if your baby is in a good sleep routine anyway; their internal clock will probably adjust itself naturally once you start putting them to bed at the new time.
Some advice suggests that in the two weeks running up to the clocks going back, it’s worth putting your baby to bed 10 minutes later than usual, increasing by 10 minutes every other night until they are going to sleep about an hour later than their normal bed time.
A good wind-down, bedtime routine for baby is essential for a restful night’s sleep, especially in the winter. Cussons Mum & Me has developed a `Sleep Tight` range of products to help relax and calm baby before bed. Here’s our pick of three from the Mum & Me range:
