No, you’re not doomed to be exhausted forever. Moms who’ve been there before share the baby sleep advice that ultimately saved their sanity.

“Babies are used to noise in the womb — don’t put them to sleep while hushing everyone around you.” — Sara K.

“Enjoy the middle-of-the-night feedings. They were our quiet cuddle moments, and they don’t last long.” — Roxanne B.

“Sleep when they sleep. Sounds trite, but that advice helped me survive when my son was a newborn.” — Laura S.

“Never brag about your baby sleeping through the night. Just when you think there’s a pattern, they get sick or are teething and it throws everything off.
Just go with it.” — Karen D.

“Don’t freak out at every noise they make when they sleep. Babies are loud sleepers.” — Michelle J.

Swaddle!” — Breanne B.

“Set a bedtime routine. My son has done so well recognizing his routine and sleeps for about 10 to 12 hours a night.” — Nicki B.

“Don't stress about getting baby to sleep longer. Sleep habits are going to change over and over again. She's a baby not a machine.” — Maureen R.
