Does anyone know how best to put a baby back to bed when they wake up 3 times a night? My husband works all day and isn't the best at waking up quickly so I really don't mind being the one going in to help out my child. However, then it seems only nursing helps soothe him and since he used to sleep through the night, this new experience is no fun. He is also teething (he now has 8 teeth) and probably hitting 9-month growth spurt. But...I just don't know what to do with my poor howling child standing up in his crib needing some comfort. If I let him cry, it usually is 45 minutes before he even quiets only to begin howling again...basically all sleep I have lost anyway. So, any ideas? Thanks!
