Baby Wisdom Tip 601 – Why babies don’t sleep when we want

__early_daysA bit of science: new borns and babies up to 3 months do not produce Melatonin which

helps us to sleep. Getting your baby and yourself out and about in daylight to start aiding

melatonin production. When putting your baby into their Moses basket/ cot ensure the

room is dark and at about 18 degrees centigrade. The contrast between daylight and dark

will help to stimulate the production of the hormone Melatonin.
