Re: Day and Night confused?
My dh wrote his dissertation on sleep, and so he had several tricks. I don't know if they worked, but our LO has been a good sleeper.
- put baby in bright light first thing in the am, preferably outside, for 15 min or so
- keep lights dim at night ( we sleep with a low light on so I don't have to turn one on at night for nursing etc)
- cosleep (research suggests baby and mothers sleep cycles coordinate)
- white noise maker for sleeping times
I also found baby wearing meant LO would catnap more, leaving longer sleeping for night. I also co-nap a lot during day too, which helps us all...
