You can start to establish a predictable bedtime routine from about two months. This will teach your baby to go to sleep at the same time each night, although it may take a while for them to catch on.
Keep the bedtime routine as simple as possible:
Some useful tips:
➡️ giving them a bath
➡️ putting on their nightsuit
➡️ reading a short bedtime story
➡️ offering a breastfeed or bottle-feed to very little ones
➡️ placing them down and saying goodnight or singing a lullaby
➡️ some children like lullaby music too playing in the room
➡️ Don't let the routine go on for longer than about 20 minutes to 30 minutes.
➡️ After this, your baby may become over-stimulated, and you'll have to start all over again.
