Just make sure you make use of diaper that is highly absorbent to keep your baby hygienic. Don’t even think of not changing your baby if they already pooped.
Keep the Room Dark
This on the other hand is proven by science. A chemical substance called melatonin is produced by the body to promote sleep. Now what’s the connection?
