Create an Environment that Welcomes Sleep
Both parents and babies need to have an ideal environment in order to get the best sleep possible. If you don’t have certain things in place, you may be uncomfortable or distracted too much to sleep.
Set up the nursery and the bedroom with blackout curtains. You will be surprised by how much a little bit of light outside your window can disrupt your sleep. Keep the rooms at a comfortable temperature so that everyone doesn’t get too hot or cold. Also, try to keep some white noise playing, which helps to drown out outside noises without being disruptive to sleep.
