hi all, any suggestion like how to coax baby to sleep?? my gal refuse to fall aslp. whenever i try to pat her to sleep, she will make herself sudden alert when she was about to doze off. pls kindly advise. thanks
i think its impt to set up a routine for kids.. no a hard n fast routine but with some allowances. then they will settle down pretty well.. play some soothing music, make sure she's well fed, diaper not wet n dim the lights in the room n pat pat her?
dear son used to behave like this when he is 2 mths old. Its really terrible cos I carried him to sleep and he falll aslp deeply in my arms. But the moment I place him on his cot, he wailed so badly! The butt just touched the cot only, he can wailed like no tml and refused to sleep anymore!
So what I do is to set a routine like what candy_ian mummy mentioned. Get him sponged, diaper changed, drink his milk and then tell him its time for him to sleep . Carried him, sing him lullaby, and whne he fall alsp deeply, slowly place him on his cot. Then when he sleep obediently, I praised him by his ear softly. And gave him a goodnite kiss.
This take me alot of time to let him get used to sleep. Slowly, he know after the sponging, diaper chg, and milk, he can get ready to sleep ..
I did try this way but no use for my son.. after milk i pat him after that move him to cot.. less than 10min he wake ><" No choice so i intro him YaoLan .. now he happily sleeping .. .. As for nap only.. Nigh time i gt to feed him till very full then puke him pat him to sleep ...
