    I either rock her in my arms and pat her bum, or put her in the rocker and do it that way. The tired signs can be tricky at that age. DD clenches her fists and goes stiff when she is tired.

    Rock or feed him to sleep. Even then I'm lucky to get 20-30 mins out of him! More often than not it takes longer to put him to sleep than he actually sleeps for!
    I also use the Ergo quite a bit, if he's in it I don't need to rock him, just the movement of me walking eventually puts him to sleep & then gives me arms free to do stuff

    I feed to sleep. She also only naps for 45mins at a time and after trying different resettling techniques with no luck, I just go with it now

    Dd1 fed to sleep till 19mths old. She was a catnapper till 6mths old as well so no real help.

    Dd2 is only 1 wk old but will not be fed to sleep. So feed her then pop her in the bassinet and pat her off.

    Each kid is different and some are catnappers. Just enjoy your baby and forget about what they should be doing.

    At 3 months I was mostly wrapping, singing songs and patting till drowsy then putting in the cot. Sometimes I'd feed to sleep and if desperate pop on the carrier and walk around the house!
