"I'm always surprised when clients tell me they always give their baby a bath before bed even though their baby hates baths!" says Dana Obleman, author of The Sleep Sense Program. "When I ask them why they're forcing their baby to do something he or she hates right before bedtime, they usually say their mom or sister told them babies need a bath before bedtime, so they just started doing it." You don't need to force a schedule if it's not your baby's cup of tea. Instead focus on what works for him, not for the babies in your parenting books.
