Don't be fearful of the word Routine!

Do you fear the expression Sleep Training or worry about Routine? For some people, the word routine conjures up images of a regimented approach to baby care, but actually nothing could be further from the truth. The wonder of my routine is that it follows a baby’s natural feeding and sleeping patterns. These are the patterns that a baby might settle into spontaneously over time, but which he can achieve very quickly with a little help and guidance.  The benefits are that  once the routine is established, your baby wi...

1) Don't make it a big issue! Many parents deliberate and talk about moving the child into a bed for weeks. It's just a natural milestone that needs to be kept simple and straightforward and implemented with the minimum of fuss.   2) Don't involve the child too much by taking them to choose a new bed & bedding. Children as young as two often struggle with the concept of seeing a bed in a shop and not understanding how and why it's going to end up in their bedroom!

Sleep is a well documented issue for new parents
Sleep, or the lack of it, is probably the most widely written about and discussed topic within the entire range of baby care issues. “How do I get my baby to sleep through the night” is the most commonly asked question and sought after solution amongst those who are preparing for, or have reached, parenthood.

The problem is that sleep deprivation is accumulative and whilst the odd late night for ...

Baby Bottles I recommend

Baby Bottles I recommend
In my book (page 61) I mention a brand of bottle however I have since discovered something far better!! In my opinion the Mam anti colic bottle with screw on bottom and silk teats are just great. The teats have just the right sized holes , the replacement air is sucked in through the bottom of the bottle and not through the cuff thus avoiding putting air bubbles into the milk.  The silk teats mimic more closely the Mothers nipple both in texture and shape and the teat hole sizes much better suit most babies.  The larger teat holes a...
