Being able to self-soothe is a skill that most babies learn. Our job as parents is to help our baby make a smooth transition. There will be crying and commotion as they study. Your baby needs you for comfort and reassurance so he can feel safe and loved. You can contact the baby sleep instructor to learn how to make your baby sleep effectively.
At about four months of age, babies begin to form their wake and sleep patterns. It is time to start setting up nap/night procedures. Crying is normal and can occur for several hours a day. This will often peak when your baby is about six weeks old, but they usually lose weight after that.
It takes time to get to know your baby's different screams and individual body language. Pay attention to your baby's body language and listen to his screams to see which answer works best for you.
Studies show that babies around four months old who lie sleepy in cots can be calmer both at the beginning and between sleep cycles. Some babies need more adult support to calm down. It is normal for your baby to make several attempts at acclimatization, depending on their age, health and fatigue level.
You may have heard of "controlled crying" or "controlled sedation" to change how your baby calms down. It can mean different things to different people. Babies are sensitive to the care they receive from caregivers. Newborns as young as six weeks experience anxiety when their relationship with caregivers is unresponsive.
