5 ways to help train baby to sleep
1. Do not make the room sound proof and dark – babies have to learn to sleep in different environments.
2. Self soothe – a routine will help the baby know it is time to sleep – dinner, bath, massage, story, bed.
3. Do not rock to sleep – you can rock your baby until they are sleepy but not until totally asleep.
4. Pat your baby in the night, but do not pick up.
5. A blanket or music or ceiling pictures can be soothing.
