Tip # 5 – Eat-Play-Sleep-Repeat
While there should be a routine in putting your baby down for a nap, you should also implement a routine for when they wake up.
This is where you can use “Eat-Play-Sleep” (EPS). Your infant will:
Eat. They should ideally take a full feed.
Play. This could be anything from tummy time and errands to walks around your neighbourhood.
Sleep. This would be a nap or bedtime.
Once again, consistency is key. Much like with the routine for when your baby is about to go down for a nap or going to bed at night, this practice will help your child understand what’s coming next.
