Time flies so fast. That little humpie has now changed into a lovely baby, grabs, giggles, rolls, creeps and maybe already stands. During the last few months, you have been quite a bit of a sleeper in recent months.
The time of every 2 hours your bed to feed is once again behind you. Still, there is still a lot to wait in the sleeping area. During the first year your child develops so quickly and, of course, it also affects the way he is sleeping.
Even the best dromers are talking at night if there is a denture or if not completely delicious.And what about all those jumps? This is also the case with many children at night. Believe me, even the parents who brag about how well their baby is sleeping at night, have to go out of bed at night!
