- Do not hold, rock, or nurse a baby to sleep in the evenings so the baby learns the difference between day and night sleeping.
- Once the baby is a week old, do not immediately feed the child between midnight and five A.M. Parents can change the baby, reswaddle the baby, walk/rock/bounce the baby, but only feed him if you've tried all that and he is still crying. (My only concern, I was led to believe that feeding a baby between 12-5am was crucial to maintaining and adequate milk supply, but I'm not doctor or lactation consultant. Also, maybe a baby who sleeps through the night is way more important that your breast milk supply)
- Try to distinguish between a baby whimpering in their sleep and a baby who is actually awake. Obviously, never wake up the former.
