    Default How do you get your baby to sleep?

    I've read on here that some babies will go to sleep with rocking or patting, but mine only feeds to sleep or will fall asleep in the caboo if I walk around. Just curious what your babies need to fall asleep, and how this changes as they age?

    Mine falls asleep mostly on the boob either in my arms or next to me in bed. Sometimes he goes to sleep just cuddling with his dad.

    If I catch him at the right time all he needs is to be wrapped, have a little cuddle and his dummy which he will spit out a few minutes after I put him down and go to sleep.

    Other times he needs rocking or patting, sleeping with me or in the carrier.

    He is 6 1/2 weeks old

    If my DD is tired all I have to do is put her in her grobag, kiss her goodnight and tuck her cot sheet in over her firmly. If she's ever having troubles, feeding to fall asleep is out fallback.

    There must have been magic in the air that day! my bub is the same age & the exact same thing happened when she was that age too! I put her in the bassinet to do the dishes & when I came back she was asleep! Never to be repeated sadly.

    On the boob, never anywhere else. Even in the car she talks to herself in the mirror, always the boob!

    Now she doesn't get wrapped she falls asleep on the boob. Sometimes if I catch her at the right time she will go down with a few shhhs and a bit of a pat on the bum

    On the booby or cuddled/rocked to sleep. Wouldn't have it any other way.

    Our boys were very similar, when bubs they would usually be quite content to be put down when tired and go to sleep on their own, if that failed a bottle would help. As they got older we discouraged them going to sleep on the bottle, eventually they would be put in their cots and off to sleep they would go. We had a bear that glows and plays music for both boys. Ds1 liked to wrap his finger twisting his shirt and ds2 likes his snuggle rug when he goes to bed at night. Our boys have both been and still are great sleepers. Neither have ever had to be rocked to sleep.
