Temperament plays a big part in deciding the best approach to improving your little one’s sleep.
What works for some personalities and temperaments does not work for others, even in the same family with the same parenting and routine.
An easy going temperament will be quite accepting of the routine you set up or will adapt without too much fuss. They are often quite content babies and are flexible when it comes to sleep times.
In contrast, a very alert temperament tends to have a harder time shutting down to sleep. They are ‘into everything’ and don’t like to sit still for long. They challenge routine and boundaries and often meet developmental milestones early.
