Keep things light and bright during the day and do not be concerned about normal household noises. When your bay is awake during the day play with him and try to keep him awake for a short period after feeds.At night the house must be quiet and his room should not be brightlt lit.Do not play with him after feeds. Remember that your baby will wake up at about 3 hourly intervals at his age.
