Congratulations on your new role as a dad! It’s indeed a challenging but rewarding journey. As you navigate through these early weeks, establishing a consistent bedtime routine can work wonders. Consider incorporating activities like a warm bath, a gentle lullaby, or reading a bedtime story to create a soothing environment. Also, try to keep nighttime feedings calm and dimly lit to signal that it’s time to sleep.

When my Emily was little, she enjoyed being comforted by my touch. Gentle touches and cuddles, like stroking her back, created a sense of security and warmth.
I wish you to discover your own method for soothing your little one to sleep.
