Easy, right? The dogs knew that it was time to feed each the bell rang and as such they would go over the place where they were served the food. But, in this article the talk is not about dog rather babies.

There are times when you feel you would like you should help the baby settle and other times you feel like letting her sleep on her own.
There are times when you have to sway the baby and this should be consistent and gentle.
Swaying rhythms helps a baby to go to sleep. The swaying if needed should be gentle for the baby’s relaxation because if it is done fast the baby will think it’s a cue to play.
The next schedule that should be implement is the parents. One good cue is time for taking a bath. If you design your schedule in a way that after bathtime there is some activity centered on sleeping it should not be a problem if you tell them to go to bed.
