1. Help your baby fall asleep faster.
Babies are sensitive to temperature changes and they love to sleep in a warm room. This is why they might start crying when they are out of their mother’s hands, in a cold bed. A simple little trick could help your baby fall asleep with comfort and help save your nerves and your time. Fill a hot water bottle with lukewarm water and place it down next to the baby’s legs. Alternatively, you can also use the bottle to warm up the bed and leave it there for the baby to hug.
