Navigating baby's nighttime routines for restful nights and peaceful days

During this stage your baby will start falling into a nap pattern spread out over morning, early afternoon, and late afternoon, giving you some much-needed stability in your day and night. And now that the baby’s hunger hormones drop at night, you’ll probably see that your baby is ready to drop some night feedings and eat more during the day.  You might be surprised to hear that your baby is still waking up briefly 4-6 times a night (so do you!), but the good news is once your baby establishes healthy sleep habits, you won’t even notice because they’ll be able to get themself back to sleep.
