How to get a crawler to sleep? Lock Rss

HI Marie

I have been trying to teach my nine month old baby how to sleep independantly, BUT she just stands up or crawls around in the cot. Should i just leave her like that or lay her back down. If i keep on laying her back down it can take hours for her to go to sleep. Im definatly not missing her tired signs, i know she is tired but she still wont sleep.
Hi Lara,

The time you are in the room you need to lay baby down facing away from you and do the patting techniques, she will fight you but you need to persist. When you leave the room she will of course get up again, but you must follow the techniques for this to work, perhaps you should consider getting a copy of <a href="It's time to sleep</a"">It's Time To Sleep</a> DVD & Book, if you don’t follow the techniques carefully you will not have the success you desire. Remember an over tired baby is harder to settle, so act on those tired signs early.

Cheers Maree
