How can I get my baby to sleep through the night

Answer: Swaddle or a sleep romper helps. ~Mommyrara

Answer: A Routine. Depending on the age make sure they are well fed before bed. About 1 hour before bed time, start to shut down the tv, lights, and anything that can stimulate them. I always still do a warm bath with lavender scented body wash. This helps to sooth. Since my daughter was born I put SmoothJazz on and she automatically knows it’s time for bed.  ~MommyD
