I was starting to feel like a crazy person spending an hour rocking and nursing my baby to sleep. Then the second I laid her down she would wake back up crying. This method really worked for us! She gets herself to sleep now every night with no crying involved! What to do when your baby has to be held, rocked, bounced or nursed to sleep.
Adopting a daily schedule for your baby or toddler gently sets his/her body clock to expect sleep at predictable times, and helps sleep come easier. Take the time to set a daily routine for your baby or toddler, and he/she will sleep through the night sooner.
