Alternatively This is the shush pat/ technique I used:
- put your hand on bubs tummy. Pat the mattress above bubs head. Shush.
- after a few minutes take your hand off bubs chest. Continue patting the mattress and shushing.
- after a few minutes stop patting the mattress. Keep shushing.
- After a few minutes edge towards the door. Keep shushing.
- stop shushing ***before bub falls asleep*** and walk out.
- if at any time bub cracks up add the previous step back in (eg patting mattress) and continue.
