Our four Swag sizes will take bub from Newborn to 6 years. A little Bubbaroo goes a long way toward better sleep.

Baby Sleep Stages

0-3 months

You're getting to know your baby.  Whether you’re following an adaptable routine or being guided by your baby, the key at this sleep stage is to learn to spot the ‘sleepy signs.’ When you identify one of these small-scale signs, there’s a tiny window to calm stimulation before overtiredness sets in.


3-6 months

At around 4 months, baby can now tell night from day and starts to establish ‘normal’ sleep cycles. This means it’s time to teach good sleep patterns by implementing routine nap and bed times, adhering to a bedtime routine and making sure when they wake during the night, it’s quiet and dark.


6-9 months 

Just when there was some smooth sleeping, baby’s waking again and is now taking more than an hour to go back to sleep. The most important factors during this sleeping hiatus is keep the slumber environment quiet and dark, encourage and re-establish self-settling.


9-12 months

Try to continue with the bedtime routine - bath, baby sleeping bag, book then bed.  Patience and repetition will be required to arrive at successful sleeping. Every child is different and while it won’t happen overnight, you’ll eventually have sleep success.  Remember little ones can start waking up after illness or changes like holidays but if you broadly stick to your routine you will get back on track in no time.


12-24 months

It’s true that the more baby sleeps, the more baby sleeps. The better the quality of your baby’s daytime naps, the better they’ll sleep at night. It’s worth persisting with naps, even if it’s one super-sleep in the early afternoon. If baby protests – persevere because their night-time sleeping will speak for itself.


2-3 years

You’re not alone. 40% of kids from 2-3 years sleep poorly and still wake up once or twice per night. This can make bedtime a nightly battle. At this stage, when baby is overtired, they’re actually over stimulated and find it hard to wind down and become calm. Maintaining a consistent bedtime routine is paramount so your little one knows what to expect.
