We made sure that when we were settling them for nap/bedtime. It was dark, quiet and calm. Not speaking just comforting. When they quietened we put them in bouncer/crib. If they cried we repeated the routine.
I have an 8 week old dd2. My first dd was an awful sleeper & never had a daytime nap without being taken out in the car, I CANNOT cope with this happening again &I need to learn how to foster good sleeping habits!
So: how do I get her to sleep without being in a sling/arms/the car?!
I'm under no illusions that an 8 week old will be a good sleeper, I just need to know how I help her get into the swing of it.
