How to Get Your Baby to Sleep Through the Night: Mom Shares her Secrets

Patch blogger and mama of two sheds light on the mistakes most parents make – and the checklist you need to get things right.

When Violet Giannone had her first baby, she couldn’t get the new bundle of joy to sleep through the night. And she admits: it was all her fault.

“I was a new mom and had no idea what I was doing,” she writes in her most recent blog post. “I had no clue that little things like nursing or rocking my baby to sleep would be the reason she would be up all hours of the night. Babies should really come with manuals!”

Having a baby who sleeps through the night has “nothing to do with luck,” Violet explains. You just have to know what you’re doing.

From creating a bedtime routine that is consistent to teaching your baby to self-settle, add these tips to your parenting arsenal and you might be pleasantly surprised.
