    Hi Emma,

    Thanks for your suggestions. I wonder if you can share your perspective on false starts, as there is so much information in the internet about it. What counts as a false start? If they just wake up crying after 1 sleep cycle and resettle soon after, does that count as a false start?

    Today my mother in law helped with some of his naps, so his naps were shifted earlier and this resulted in an early bedtime of 6.30pm, but without false starts! So I’m not sure if false starts are always related to timing of naps and awake windows?

    Do the naptime and bedtime routines need to be in the same order of activities? I find that the order or even the activities themselves can differ depending on who puts baby to sleep, it’s not 100% consistent.

    Can a baby learn to nap if I cannot achieve a completely dark room? There is some natural light that shines through my blinds.

    Thanks Emma 🙂
