Patience, perserverance, consistency and a little TLC will always work as well as putting my t-shirt under bub so they can "smell" their mummy!

I wouldn't say i have great tips, it was more trial and error and in the end i was lucky to have two great babies
who settled easily. I always made sure that they either had a bath or wash down and dressed them i clean nightclothes, they went to bed with a full tummy and then sometimes some songs and lots of cuddles before putting them down in their cots and letting them settle off to sleep by themselves
I only now have troubles if they're unwell or teething which is to be expected.

a warm bath followed with breastfeeding, wrapped in a sleeping bag. Then a big hug and kiss before my little angel settles to sleep.

My tip for a peaceful nights sleep......I look forward to finding out when my first baby arrives
A supply of Love to Swaddle Up would certainly help me discover a peaceful nights sleep!

Nothing but lots of love and cuddles with baby before bed
Sleepless nights suck but our babies are only newborns for so long so I just try and remind myself that soon I will miss those cuddles!

There is a new baby monitor app, its unreal, it plays a recording of your voice or soothing music to get your baby off to sleep!!!

A gentle wind down routine is fantastic, but even more important is for baby to feel SAFE and LOVED. And what a privilege it is to be a parent and be able to provide this nurturing environment for your child.

A consistent bedtime routine makes bub at ease and sleeping beautifully

The Dream Feed works for us. We feed our 13 week old little girl while she is still asleep at 10 - 1030pm and then I only need to get up once during the night to feed her.

Warm bath, gentle massage, lots of cuddles.
Most importantly, a feed before sleep.

A belly full of milk, clean nappy, some kisses and cuddles, wrapped nice and tight and she will be gone for the night!

I am yet to experience all of this being currently pregnant at the moment, but I think the best thing would have to be a nice cuddle while snuggling bub in close for a feed, that in combination with a nice bath before hand. But nothing can beat the comfort that only mum can give.

have a peaceful house. if you have other little ones make sure they are all settled at the same time.

We haven't had all that many peaceful nights with our 4 month old but we get the best results with a final feed, baby massage with lavender scented baby lotion, and playing Jewel's CD of lullaby's. Makes me a bit sleepy too!

Rock Baby , softly talking to her/him, gently just with the two of you having alone time before bed

A mum is learning as much as a new baby, so it's all about consistency, security, love, food and a clean nappy. Eventually you will find what works for you and your new bub.

A long walk after dinner, the fresh air does us all wonders & we all sleep like babies (good one's that don't cry all night long!).

Don't let bub sleep all day. Get him/her into a routine, that has them up and alert during the afternoon/late evening so they sleep like a little log all night long.

Bring them to bed with you. It's the only way I can get our little guy to stop squawking and sleep, happily in my arms.

A full belly, a consistent bedtime routine and a nice, tight swaddle works for my little man.

feed then put baby in a swaddle to bed semi awake to sef settle to sleep
Posted 17 March 2012 - 07:14 AM
A warm bath, full belly, dry bottom, soft lights, big warm cuddles, kisses and plenty of "I love you"'s
Every so often they'll want extended cuddle time - do it! Cuddles with bubs is far more important and fufilling then folding that pile of washing. Also swaddle, find that perfect one & bubs will be blissfully in dreamland
