10. Limit Nighttime Diaper Changes
While it can be difficult to resist the urge to regularly change your baby when they wake in the night, experts say you should let them continue sleeping whenever possible. The interaction will needlessly stimulate your infant, which combined with bedroom lights and being wiped with cold, wet towels can rouse your baby enough to make getting back to sleep difficult.
Instead, invest in quality nighttime diapers and change your baby only if their diaper is soiled. If you must wake your baby for a nighttime diaper change do not turn on unnecessary lights, don’t talk, and use a warm washcloth for wipes.
