Routine is a powerful tool for parents to keep their babies happy, healthy and secure. Here are the fundamentals of setting a routine for your baby.
The 12-hour rule
As the parent, you can aim to set a morning wake-up time, and it should be consistent every day (plus or minus half an hour). Bedtime will be 12 to 13 hours later. This means that if the baby is waking up at 7 am, bedtime will be between 7 pm and 8 pm.
