Step 3: Quietly off to sleep

After giving your baby a warm bath and a relaxing massage, it's time to send her off to sleep with a little quiet time together. 

Make sure you keep the atmosphere calm and cosy, avoiding active play. You can help your baby wind down further by reading, singing softly or offering a feed.

It's best to avoid active play at this time, so baby goes to bed sleepy but still awake. This will help her learn how to self-soothe and get back to sleep on her own if she wakes up during the night.
