Step 01: a soothing soak
Step 02: a gentle massage
Take this time to bond with your little one and give them a massage with baby oil or lotion. Gentle and loving touch is a great way to soothe babies and reduce crying. Studies have shown regular massage can also aid digestion, relieve colic, gas and constipation and help your baby sleep more deeply – making it a great one to include in your baby's daily wind-down routine.
Step 03: a bedtime book
It's never too early to introduce your baby to the world of stories. Reading helps you not only to bond with your baby and put them to sleep, but also to boost their imagination, memory and language skills from an early age. And ofcourse they will love staring at the colourful pictures!

Step 04: a final feeding
Before you sit down to feed your baby, soften the lights and draw the curtains in the room to allow for their eyes to adjust to the idea that sleep is coming soon. When you’re finished, be sure to burp your baby before putting them down to sleep.
