Baby Sleep Tips:

Baby Sleep Secret #2- It takes an average of 15 to 20 minutes to go to sleep

This one may surprise you. Did you know that this average applies to both grown-up and baby sleep alike? Experts say that if you’re “asleep before your head hits the pillow,” you’re probably sleep-deprived.
So keep this in mind if you think your baby is taking too long to settle down, and don’t rush to “rescue” him. It may take him 15 to 20 minutes to land in La-La Land.
