How to settle a newborn baby in a crib or basket

  • Put something that smells of mum in the crib, e.g. clothing.
  • Put hot water bottle in crib. Cover with swaddling blanket.
  • Tank baby full of milk, to make them sleepy. 
  • At end of feed, wind baby as quickly as possible, then swaddle baby.
  • Remove hot water bottle and place swaddled baby in warn patch.
  • Put another thin blanket over baby and tuck in either side.
  • Remember that some babies cry for a short time immediately before falling asleep - give them time to settle.
