Establishing a nap schedule
Establishing a nap schedule involves assessing your baby's sleep needs by observing their patterns and identifying signs of sleepiness. Create a conducive nap environment with a quiet, dark room and comfortable sleeping space. Develop a pre-nap routine that includes activities like reading a book or singing a lullaby. Implement the nap schedule with specific times and consistency, while allowing for flexibility as your baby grows. Continuously monitor and adjust the schedule based on your baby's needs, and consult with a pediatrician for guidance if necessary.
