Top 5 Tips By Annerley <br /> <a href="/hong-kong/articles/guides/whats-routine" class="imagecache imagecache-article_node_image imagecache-linked imagecache-article_node_image_linked"><img src="http://t.littlestepsasia.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/article_node_image/article/hero/Top-5-Tips.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-article_node_image" width="515" height="250" /></a> <br /> <p>What's the big deal with a routine anyway? &nbsp;Check out these top 5 tips for getting your baby on a routine from Annerley's oh-so-fabulous guru, Conchita! &nbsp;</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Top 5 Tips:</strong></span></p> <p><strong>1. &nbsp;Establishing A Routine: </strong>&nbsp;Your baby is never too young and they truly thrive on routines! &nbsp;You can start establishing routines as soon as you bring them home from the hospital. &nbsp;They give rhythm and predictability to a baby's day, so they're very reassuring. &nbsp;For example, you can move into a bedtime ritual (feed, bath, book, sleep) for example at a very early age to give you and your baby natural cues toward developing a sleep related routine.</p> <p><strong>2. &nbsp;Don't Be Afraid To Let Baby Be Content:</strong> &nbsp;Remember, your baby does not have to be asleep when you put them down in their bed. &nbsp;Babies can be content and awake - no problem!</p> <p><strong>3. &nbsp;Feeding:</strong> &nbsp;Do put your baby down between feeds! &nbsp;Try not to get baby falling asleep in your arms as this can establish longer term habits.</p> <p><strong>4. &nbsp;The Routine:</strong> &nbsp;Rhythms will develop over 6-8 weeks which will then become routines which you can then tweak and fit in with you. &nbsp;Everyone is different!</p> <p><strong>5. &nbsp;Traveling: &nbsp;</strong>When you travel, put your baby on the destination schedule as soon as you board the plane. &nbsp;This can help with jet lag (the general rule on how long it takes to get over jet lag is 1 hour per day). &nbsp;For a destination that has a 12-hour time difference, this means 12 days to be fully back on track.</p> http://t.littlestepsasia.com/hong-kong/articles/guides/whats-routine Farm Milk 100% Fresh Delivery <br /> <a href="/hong-kong/articles/shop/farm-milk" class="imagecache imagecache-article_node_image imagecache-linked imagecache-article_node_image_linked"><img src="http://t.littlestepsasia.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/article_node_image/article/hero/Screen_shot_2014-09-11_at_7.05.16_PM.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-article_node_image" width="515" height="250" /></a> <br /> <p>For milk-obsessed kidlings, there seems to never be enough of their favorite white drink from heaven.
