How To Make A Baby Go To Sleep
What can I do?
Either sleep close to him so that neither of you are too disturbed and he can get what he needs from you easily Or accept that you will be up several times a night.
Either sleep close to him so that he doesn’t have to cope with the separation at night Or show him that he can cope with separation at night (see Chapter 11, the kissing game and gradual withdrawal). Make a decision.
Either sleep close to him so that you can minimize the disturbance for both of you until he chooses to move Or show him gently but firmly how you want him to sleep (see Chapter 11, any behaviour management plan).
All ages are of course approximate. Your baby may experience these stages earlier or later than the average baby.
