If this doesn't work for you, our own sleep expert, Dr. Nerina, has great sleep tips for new parents including:
- Use some white noise to block out the sound of every whimper and avoid being hypersensitive to noise. You can buy white noise machines or use a fan to create background sound
- Use a low-level bedside lamp. The less time you are exposed to light, the easier it will be to get back to sleep again
- Every new mother should power nap and naps should last between 5 and 15 minutes. This way you will approach a near sleep state without actually falling asleep
