5 Steps to a Sleeping Baby

Some people say there’s no such thing as a Zombie Apocalypse…clearly, those people have never been to your house at 5:30 in the morning.

If your baby’s summer sleep schedule has got you looking like an extra from The Walking Dead, then it’s time to rethink your technique. We recommend this simple, 5-step method:

Step 1: Get the Right Mattress
Our pick? The Newton—a breathable mattress that’s not only free of off-gassing and washable, but the perfect mix of cushy and firm.

Step 2: Soothe Them Anywhere
The DockATot is a snug and secure resting pillow that works miracles when it comes to getting babies to nod off.

Step 3: Two Words—Blackout Curtains
Pottery Barn’s Chevron panels in Gray or Navy will ensure that when you say “lights out,” you can back it up.

Step 4: Swaddle Right
Is it too tight? Too loose? Forget the guesswork…the Miracle Blanket Baby Swaddle lets you create the perfect swaddle every time.

Step 5: Don’t Forget Aromatherapy
Combine storytime with relaxing scents like Lavender and Neroli and you’ll get Hardworking Honey Bee: An Aromatherapy Book for Sleepytimean irresistible sleep aid that will have baby—and mommy—snoozing in no time.
