2 month old baby sleep routine

Get the REAL story about about life with a new baby!

Babies are such placid, peaceful little creatures. Well, according to Hallmark they are. Ask a new parent what babies are like and you’ll get a completely different picture: between the giggles and snuggles and exciting milestones there are also the sleepless nights, struggles with establishing feeding patterns and finding time for everything else in life, and not to mention the way they suddenly change when you have finally figured them out! Certain aspects of looking after a baby can be particularly hard, and each bub (and parent) will present their own challenges. We’ve asked parents and experts to share their hints and tips on how they dealt with a whole range of aspects relating to babies; from sleep issues, to choosing a nappy to dealing with common health problems.
