What can I do to help my baby sleep on her own?
Sarah - posted on 10/02/2012
I have a 6 1/2 week old that I held every night until last night. A lot of mothers may disagree with this but I read Becoming Babywise which does use the "cry it out" method. I don't let her cry long by herself but give her 10 to 15 minutes and then check on her.It is not for everyone but it works for me. The suggestion is really that good sleeping habits after each feeding (feed/waketime/nap) will result in a baby that sleeps at night. Just remember - no matter the advice, each baby is different and your lifestyle will dictate her behavior too.
It won't last forever so hang in there but check out this book if it appeals to you.
