You may be exhausted, but that doesn't mean it's always easy to fall asleep. Here's how to make sack time more successful.
The top tips for more restful zzzzzs.
Co-sleep: If you co-sleep you can breastfeed in bed. You can comfort your baby without getting up, and you'll get more sleep overall.
Create a bedtime routine: Even mamas need a routine. Take a warm bath, have some tea, read a book, or play nice music. Get relaxed and you'll have a better sleep.
Make a list: Don't lay in bed all night thinking about tomorrow. Instead make a list before bed. Now that you know you won't forget your tasks, you can sleep.
Exercise: Make sure to get in some exercise every day. You'll feel better overall and sleep much better.
Naps: If you can't get enough sleep at night, try a nap in addition to your nighttime sleep.
See a doctor: If you really are having sleep issues, see a health care provider. As a mama you need your rest, and if basic tips and solutions aren't cutting it, you may have a medical issue to deal with.
