Ask any parent who has just been through the newborn phase, and they’ll tell you—sleep is something that you both lack and think about every day. Baby sleep is one of the most daunting parts of being a new parent, and there is no way around the fact that, as parents, we lose sleep. So, is the battle for sleep as a new parent a lost cause? Absolutely not! There’s no magic cure for the lack of sleep during the newborn phase, but there are a few things (and baby sleep products) to consider when it comes to setting your baby and yourself up for success. 

“I highly recommend viewing their sleep as a puzzle and making sure all of the necessary pieces are in place,” says Michele Wawerski, founder of Peaceful Littles and certified professional sleep consultant. While it’s a reality that you’ll have to get used to new sleep patterns and definitely some sleepless nights, helping baby get into a healthy sleep routine is something you can help control when you take a few parts of that puzzle under consideration. According to Wawerski, those factors are sleep environment, bedtime routine, schedule, soothing response, room acclimation, and consistency. “Pediatric sleep is a journey. Remaining consistent with a sleep plan will allow your little one to fall into a great sleep routine,” adds Wawerski.
