How To Get Your Baby To Sleep In A Crib
Loving and Letting Go
If you would like your baby to go to sleep alone but find it hard to get out of his room, you may find that listening and talking to yourself and your baby in a certain way helps.
Why Should I Talk Out Loud to my Baby?
• Because sometimes you and your baby both need to hear how you’re both feeling
• It helps you clarify what you want to say
• Things said out loud seem more real
• It can stop the same old thoughts going round and round in your head
On putting him down to sleep, try tuning in to how you are feeling and acknowledge that out loud. It’ll sound funny the first time you do it but if you talk directly to your baby it may seem less crazy. If you want to laugh – go right ahead, it could be part of the medicine.
