One mistake many parents make is running to their sleeping child as soon as they start crying. The truth is babies stir a lot in their sleep, so those noises may not actually be them waking up. If you rush too quickly, you may actually wake them up and do more harm than good.
Instead, try to exercise caution while still letting your child know you are there for them. Gently enter the room and provide some comforting or calming words without picking your little one up. You’ll be surprised how much the comfort of a parent can help a baby doze off without you needing to touch your child at all.
