I am really struggling to get my 9 month old to sleep. She gets tired around 7 after having her bath and feed but she wont settle. She has just learnt to crawl and she will do this in her cot even though she is shattered and her eyes are nearly shut.I leave her with her mobiles on but she still wont go off to sleep. Anyone got any helpful tips? she is exactly the same at having naps in the day!

Maybe try leaving the mobiles off as this could be stimulating her more then she already is. When they learn a new milestone or skill babies love to practise any time and place. Make sure before sleeps she has heaps of play time on the ground where she can practice her new skills so it might cut down cot time crawling

I would also suggest not doing the mobile or anything over her bed as this is just a distraction and probably keeping her awake. Try a soft lullaby cd, a cd of rain or soothing sounds, a heartbeat teddy, a white noise machine, a fan on low. Keeping the room low on light and quiet. Some babies just don't sleep.

A lavender bath or lavender scent in the bedroom helps. A nice warm bath maybe a little later. Nothing stimulating that hour before bedtime.

instead of playing the mobiles try a cd on very low with something classical they say that playing classical music while a baby sleeps not only helps them to sleep more soundly but also stimulates the way the brain works. I have done this with my 2 year old and she is very advanced. She of course knows her animals I think all 2 year old's know those and their sounds. But she also knows all her colors, can count to 20 in English and Spanish all her shapes,and the alphabet ,and not only can she say them but if you hold up a card she recognizes them as well. Her doctor says she is almost ready to start reading. And sometimes if she has a really hard time sleeping I just sit next to her bed and sing softly. Sometimes she just needs to know I'm still there.
