Bedtime for baby: developing a sleep schedule

One of the main complaints of parents with a newborn is the lack of a baby’s sleep schedule. A fussy or colicky baby will have mum and dad up all night! Although the first year or so is difficult, there are steps that you can take to get into sync with your baby’s routine preferences so that everyone can have a decent amount of sleep.

So how do we keep the kids entertained and ourselves sane? I have a lot of good ideas for stay-at-home games, gathered over the years. Games for kids on rainy days should keep their minds occupied as well as allowing them to burn off energy so that they don’t feel confined indoors. But it’s important to pace the kids – and ourselves!   Watching a couple of DVDs together is a good idea, but it’s better to leave that till later after playing some more “traditional” interactive games. Here are a few of my own suggestions. Rainy Day Ideas Hide and seek. This is a classic, fun game, especially when mum joins in with […]
