Routines are essential in the life of our babies, that is why it is important to create nap and sleep routines. The sleep routine can be accompanied by a relaxing bath, a massage, a story, lots of love, and white noise.
6. Change diaper before bed
Babies are continually defecating and urinating, for this reason to prolong our baby's sleep it is important to change his diaper before putting him to sleep.
7. Over stimulate your baby
To get our baby to sleep and put him to sleep, it is important to overstimulate him so that he gets tired and falls asleep at the moment of sleep.
