My 7 week old baby has been self settling now for 2 weeks. Before that she fell asleep in my arms or on the boob and then I put her in the cot.
Now we have a cuddle, a little rock and I sing her a song, tell her I love her and walk out with the white noise on.
Most times she falls straight asleep. Sometimes she stares at things around the room and then drops off. Sometimes she coos to herself.
A few times she has cooed to herself and started these 2 sec beginnings of what would turn into a cry but gone back to cooing or fallen asleep. She might do this for max 3 or 4 mins.
I pick her up staright away for a cuddle if she cries. Is this no cry or Controlled crying?
I am just interested. I have never wanted her to feel alone and wonder if I should be picking her up if she is doing the latter scenerio.
