Baby sleep checklist
It’s natural to feel anxious when your baby won’t settle – but it’s worth running through a mental checklist first:
- Are they hungry?
- Too hot or cold?
- Do they need their nappy changed?
- Are they over-tired?
- Do they need winding?
Sometimes you can run through all the obvious things, only to find your baby still won’t settle – and that can be worrying. It’s worth remembering that this is quite normal in young babies – but if you’re concerned that something’s wrong, it’s OK to seek medical advice!
