Don't be tempted to keep baby up late!

When you've been at work all day, it can be so tempting to keep your baby up so that you can spend more time with him. You may think that maybe he'll become so tired, he'll eventually flake out. 

Whatever the reason and however well intentioned, it's not a good idea to keep your child up. When babies get overtired they find it more difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. They tend to wake up earlier than if they went to bed at a more reasonable hour. surprising yes - but true.

It’s so much better to have a bedtime routine in place and  then stick to it. Don’t wait until your baby is yawning and rubbing his eyes to put it into action. You might not believe it but 15 minutes to 20 minutes of extra sleep can really make all the difference.
