Schedule arrangement: Try to rearrange his schedulr so that he takes his longest sleep between12&6. This can be done by rearranging his feeding schedule and his nap time. Rember, if you are tired and can't face the day everybody suffers including your baby. There is no better medicine than sufficient rest.
