How do you help a 4 month old baby boy self-soothe? What do you do if he wakes up in the middle of his nap crying

my biggest concern is Jack wakes up in the middle of his naps.I try to sush him back to sleep but he always ends up waking completely. It seemed counterproductive since I'm trying to teach him to soothe himself back to sleep and I'm doing all the soothing for him. So, any tips on how to teach Jack to self-soothe and nap longer.

Well, he is 4 months old. He needs his mother to sooth him. I am not a fan of crying it out, but am a fan of binkies. Maybe it isn't so much that he needs to go back to sleep during his nap, maybe his nap is done and he wants to wake up.
