A Parents' Ultimate Guide to Baby Sleep and Routine

Published: 11/12/2020

At myTamarin we know that a new baby, while the most exhilarating thing in the world, can also be the most exhausting too. We also know that, especially in 2020, not everyone has been able to access the support that they need - which is why we consulted with our expert newborn help team of night nannies, sleep consultants, lactation specialists and maternity nurses to compose the parents’ ultimate guide to baby sleep and routine.
