A friend gave us the Instant Baby Sleep MP3’s and PDF’s which helped us through those hard restless nights. For the most part we followed this easy to remember checklist:
Another weird tip that worked was rubbing the center of forehead above the eyes ever so gently.
- Hold your baby like a football while supporting the neck
- Tilt the head slightly to avoid shampoo from getting into the eyes
- Be calm and gentle while massaging the head
- Have a bucket for clean water and another bucket for dirty water (or do over the sink)
