Nap help!

Jessica - posted on 07/07/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




I need advice :) Ian sleeps great at night, I do not really need help training him to sleep, its just that during the day time, I will hang out with him while he is awake but when he naps if I put him down he wakes up. It would be awsesome if he would take his naps by himself but IDK how to make him lay down without me holding him? For the past few days I have been laying him down when he falls asleep and then he usually wakes 5-10 mins later so I grab him, rock him and then lay him back down and repeat the process but I have not really seen any results. He is 11 weeks BTW.

Try putting him down when he is sleepy, not not completely asleep. If he cries, just pat his back for a little while. If he falls asleep by himself, he'll be more likely to stay asleep for longer. You may find, after a very little bit of crying, he falls asleep completely.
