Allow Baby to Self-Soothe
One of the most important skills you need to teach your baby when it comes to sleep is self-soothing. This is not an ability they are born with, but it is critical for helping everyone get a good night’s sleep.
Remember earlier when we talked about sleep cycles? Teaching your child to self-soothe will help them learn to fall back to sleep on their own when they wake up in the middle of the night. It will prevent you from having to jump up to comfort them every time.
