One of the first things you should do is have a baby mobile that you can hang safely above their bed. This gives them something to focus on which is massively helpful when getting them to settle. Have a look for nursery accessories - these will differ depending on your needs but projectors or nightlights can be a great help for keeping things calm during late-night nappy changes and feeds. Make sure the bedding you choose is suitable for your baby’s delicate skin as this will help them feel calm and well-rested while they sleep.
