Talking, singing and playing with your child will keep them active in their surrounding as they learn, grow and discover. When napping, just make sure that it is not a lengthy nap, as it will interfere with the baby being able to sleep all night long.
2. Many things will stimulate the attention of the baby, such as mobiles, sounds and light patterns.
To raise a child that will sleep through noise, they must be accustoming to it. This began for them while in embryo; continue its use after the child arrives.

4. Sleeping arrangements are a personal choice; however, it is best to train a baby to sleep in its own bed. Being able to lie down, stretch out, while going to sleep and sleeping through the night is restful for everyone. You simply place the child in their beds, just as they are about to go to sleep. Doing so, allows them to get use to the area as well as not becoming frightened when waking somewhere I do not recall.
